Housing Contract

Housing Contract

The Housing Contract is the basic document that states the student's and the University's contractual obligations. All information contained in the Housing and Residential Education web pages, including the Community Living Standards section, is a legally binding adjunct which is incorporated into the Housing Contract.

It is the student's responsibility to become familiar with all provisions of the Housing Contract, and provisions may be added or changed during the term of the Housing Contract with appropriate prior notification to residents.

No term or condition of the Housing Contract may be waived without the formal written agreement of both parties, and no oral statement made by the Department of Housing and Residential Education or its agents or employees is considered a waiver of any term or condition.

Community Living Standards

The Housing Contract is the basic document that states the contractual obligations between students who live in campus housing and Housing and Residential Education.

The Community Living Standards are a legally binding adjunct to your contract. You are equally responsible for complying with the rules, policies, and regulations that appear here as you are for those directly printed on the contract.

Non-Disciplinary Termination of Housing Contract

Housing Contracts are issued for the entire academic year (fall and spring semesters) for students entering in the fall.  Students entering in the spring semester are issued contracts for the spring semester only.  Residents may not cancel their residence hall contract to move to another facility not operated by Housing and Residential Education, such as private off-campus housing, or fraternity or sorority.

The University may terminate the contract on non-disciplinary grounds when a student:

Current Students: Cancellation Penalties

This cancellation policy applies to "current students" which we define as a student who is/was enrolled at UNC at the time of signing a housing contract for the following academic year, regardless of whether they lived on or off campus at the time of signing the contract.

New Students: Cancellation Penalties

This cancellation policy applies to "new students" which we define as a student who has signed a housing contract for the upcoming academic year and will be enrolling in classes at UNC for the first time.

Cancel in Writing
To cancel your Housing Contract, you must do so in writing. Notifying other University departments cannot effect cancellations. You may cancel your Housing Contract by emailing the Department of Housing and Residential Education at housing@unc.edu (recommended) or by faxing a letter to 919-962-1006.
