If you are certain that you wish to live in Daniell Heights next year, but you want to transfer to a different apartment, please renew your current contract online. After you renew your current contract online, you will be able to schedule an appointment with me in Housing and Residential Life (153 Wadsworth Hall) to discuss and select an apartment from those available. We cannot guarantee that your preference will be available.

There is a $200 fee to transfer to a new apartment. Apartment transfer moves are the responsibility of the contract holder and must be complete between July 14, 2017 and July 16, 2017. If you are unable to meet this requirement, your transfer will not be approved.

If you plan to graduate at the end of the Fall 2017 semester, your housing contract will allow you to be released without additional penalties as long as you follow a few guidelines. You will get an email in November to ask you if you will be graduating, going on co-op, accepting an internship, going on study abroad, transferring or  withdrawing. If this will be your situation, you will be able to fill out a form online by November 17, 2017. You will then receive a confirmation email. Housing will verify your reason for departure. You will move out on December 23, 2017 at noon. As long as you follow these guidelines and the additional instructions you will receive, you will be released from your contract.
