University Housing / Future Residents / Future First-Year Students / Fall/Spring Housing Contract

Fall/Spring Housing Contract

 

 

Eligibility

Only these students are eligible to complete this contract:

  • students that have been admitted to FSU for Summer or Fall 2015
  • current FSU students that are living off-campus 

 

Summer Admits

Students admitted for Summer, must follow the instructions provided by FSU Admissions to accept their admission offer for Summer before they can submit a housing contract.

Please complete your Fall/Spring contract before you complete your Summer C 2015 housing contract. There are a number of reasons for this:

  • We become overbooked for Fall/Spring housing much earlier than Summer.
  • Your Summer C contract priority does not carry over to your Fall/Spring contract.
  • All buildings open for Summer C are in close proximity to each other and have similar amenities.
  • For students that are still deciding if they will be attending or not, the Summer contract cancellation charge is higher ($100) than the Fall/Spring cancellation charge ($50) provided notice is provided by May 1. (Only those students not attending FSU can cancel their Summer C or Fall/Spring contracts.)

 

Terms and Conditions of the Contract

The following are highlights of the terms and conditions of the Fall 2015/Spring 2016 housing contract:

  • This contract creates a financial obligation for both Fall 2015 and Spring 2016 semesters. 
  • This contract is binding regardless of room assignment. 
  • This contract cannot be cancelled for Fall 2015 unless you provide written notice to the Housing office that you will not be attending Florida State University for Fall 2015. If notice is provided by May 1, 2015 and you made a prepayment, you will be refunded your prepayment less a $50 cancellation fee.
  • This contract cannot be cancelled for Spring 2016 unless you provide written notice to the Housing office that you will not be attending Florida State University for Spring 2016,  OR are studying abroad for Spring 2016.
  • This contract requires that you secure a meal plan through Seminole Dining if you are assigned to or select a room in Landis, Gilchrist, Broward, Bryan, Reynolds, Jennie Murphree, or Cawthon Halls.
