Housing Contract Renewal

Each spring semester, a new Summer - Spring housing contract will be available in the myTC Portal for students who:

  1. did not submit a Vacate Notification Form indicating a departure at the end of the Spring semester,
  2. have a student account balance of less than $500, and
  3. remain eligible for housing (See Housing Eligibility).

Any student who does not meet the above criteria must request, in writing, an appeal to the Assistant Director of Residential Services for Housing.

Residents who are not sure of their housing needs for the upcoming academic year should complete a new housing contract as all housing spaces not reclaimed via the housing contract will be reassigned to incoming students. Residents who do not submit their contract will be expected to move out at the end of the current spring semester.

Once residents submit their new housing contract, they will be held minimally financially responsible to the contract through at least the Summer A vacate date.

NOTE: Any resident who vacates the residence hall for any period of time, and desires housing for an upcoming term, must submit an new application and a $30 application fee for the desired semester.
