Can I have an extension on the deadline?
Unfortunately, we are not able to give any extensions. Summer housing assignments rely on your timely response, so we need everyone to participate in the Renewal/Vacate Process by the deadline.
Is my decision final? What if I change my mind?
Once you sign your contract or submit your vacate form, your decision is final. If you selected that you will vacate housing and changed your mind, we cannot guarantee you a place in housing. If you renewed your contract and decided you now wish to vacate, you will incur a Cancellation Fee based on when you submit the request (see table below). Also, depending on when you cancel you may be held responsible for the housing charges for the following semester.
|Date Vacate Submitted|
After March 9
|1 - 7 days after the deadline
|8 - 14 days after the deadline
|15+ days after the deadline but before summer VNF*
* Once the Summer A & B VNF deadline passes on May 7,
you will be held responsible for Summer A & B housing charges.
What if I want to move out at the end of Summer A or B?
To remain eligible for summer housing if you are vacating in the summer, you must be enrolled or affiliated with TC during the summer term. If you are teaching or have dependents in public schools, you can remain in housing until the conclusion of Summer A.
If one of these is the case, you should submit a renewal contract now and then submit a Summer Vacate Notification Form (VNF) in late April. The renewal contract will extend your time in housing past May 2019 (end of housing contract) and the VNF will indicate the date you will vacate. The summer VNF will be accessible April 26 - May 7.
What if I want to return to housing in Fall 2019 but I don’t wish to stay here for the summer?
You should select the option to vacate housing at the end of the Spring 2019 semester. You will be required to move out on May 15 by 11am. You will then need to apply for Fall 2019 housing, but will not be guaranteed a space. Fall 2019 housing applications are currently available in myTC.
What is the process for transfer requests?
Transfer offers will be sent on March 14. Priority will be given to those that submitted transfer requests in the fall semester that were not offered a transfer. New transfer requests are prioritized by original housing application date. Due to high demand, we are typically not able to accommodate all transfer requests. If you do not receive an offer you will be given higher priority for a transfer in subsequent semesters.
Have any changes been made to the Housing Contract?
Yes. We have reduced the credit requirement in order to live in housing to 1 credit. However, renewing your contract still requires 18 credits between fall and spring. Changes will also be explained on the first page of the process.
