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

Fall/Spring Housing Contract




Only these students are eligible to complete this contract:

  • students that have been admitted to FSU for Summer or Fall 2014
  • 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 for Summer before they can submit a housing contract.

Please complete your Fall/Spring contract before you complete you Summer C 2014 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.
  • We have fewer buildings open for Summer C and all 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.)



In short, the process to complete your housing contract is as follows. Click each step below to learn specifics about how to complete each item.

Step 1 Complete online portion of contract, including reviewing the terms and conditions of the housing contract.
Step 2 Within 10 calendar days of completing Step 1, pay the $225 advance payment on the FSU Fee Payment site.
Step 3 By April 15, submit parent/guardian signature form if student is under 18 when completing Step 1.

Failure to complete all of the steps that apply to you, will result in cancellation of your housing contract and will require you to resubmit your contract again. This will also result in a loss of your original priority.
