Contract Terms & Conditions

Fall 2016/Spring 2017 Housing Contract

The purpose of this document is to establish a mutual contract between each housing student and the Florida State University Board of Trustees, a public body corporate of the State of Florida, acting for and on behalf of Florida State University and its University Housing, with regard to living in University Housing Facilities.

I. TERMS AND CONDITIONS

  1. Under this contract, the student is entitled to the privacy of his or her assigned room, (except as stated in II G), the use of public facilities of the residence hall, and the services rendered in order to pursue his/her educational goals.
  2. This contract, whether submitted electronically or in paper form, with required advance payment is effective from the University's receipt of the contract until the end of the spring semester of the academic year. If the student enrolls or re-enrolls at the University after providing notice that the student will not be attending for a specific semester, the contract obligation may be reinstated for the remainder of the contract period, at the sole discretion of the University. The student must vacate the residence hall within 24 hours of withdrawal, release, or termination of the contract during a given semester.
  3. Residents of University Housing facilities must be degree-seeking students registered for classes at Florida State University for each semester of occupancy. Any exceptions must be granted on an individual basis and based on documented academic circumstances. A student who cancels a contract because he or she is not a degree-seeking student must do so in writing on or before the fifth (5th) day of classes in a given semester.
  4. The University's receipt of this contract does not guarantee assignment to a particular type of accommodation (building or room type), nor does it determine final admission to the University. Priority for assignments will be granted according to the following hierarchy:
    1. For individuals who are contracting for housing for the term in which they are admitted (e.g., students arriving on campus for the first time in either Summer or Fall), the date and time of contract submission is used to establish priority for receiving on–campus housing and assignment to preferred buildings and room types.
    2. For returning individuals (e.g., students who lived in University Housing during the Spring 2016 semester), the number of completed credit hours on file with the University is used to establish priority for receiving on-campus housing and assignment to preferred buildings and room types.
    3. For individuals who did not live in University Housing but were matriculated and enrolled during the Spring 2016 semester, housing will be offered on a space available basis no earlier than April 1st.
  5. Semester room rent covers occupancy from the date and time designated for official opening until the date and time designated for official closing of the residence halls for each semester. Residence hall closings will follow the last scheduled examination for each semester. Room rent does not cover occupancy during any vacation period or between semesters. University Housing reserves the right to provide housing during break periods in specific buildings on a limited, centralized basis and for an additional charge.

II. CONDITIONS AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF RESIDENTS

  1. Students may reside only in the rooms to which they are assigned, and students may not sublet rooms to another person. Room transfers may occur only upon written approval from the University Housing office or the building's hall coordinator. A guest may not stay in University Housing facilities for more than three (3) days during a 30–day period.
  2. Students are responsible for care of rooms and equipment. The University performs routine, periodic and preventative maintenance and custodial services. The University may also provide periodic suite bathroom cleaning, subject to staff availability and other conditions. Charges may be made for damages to, unauthorized use of, or alterations to, rooms, equipment or buildings, as well as for special cleaning necessitated by improper care of rooms or equipment. Students are jointly responsible for care of public areas and equipment. "Public areas" are defined as those areas available for use by all students living on a wing, a floor or within a hall. Charges for damages to public areas and equipment may be made to all students assigned to separate wings, floors or within entire halls as deemed appropriate by University Housing.
  3. Students are responsible for knowing and following University regulations and procedures as set forth in official University publications including the Student Conduct Code and the Guide to Residence Living. The University reserves the right to make other rules and regulations that in its judgment may be necessary for the safety, care and cleanliness of the premises and for the preservation of order. The student agrees to abide by all additional rules and regulations that are adopted.
  4. The University is not liable for damage or loss of personal property, failure or interruption of utilities, or unforeseen accidents/injuries. Students are strongly encouraged to secure their own personal property loss insurance.
  5. Resident acknowledges that all main campus housing facilities are located in Florida, which has a climate conducive to the growth of mold and mildew, and that it is necessary to provide proper ventilation and humidification of rooms to retard or prevent the growth of mold and mildew. Resident agrees to be responsible for properly ventilating and dehumidifying the room and the contents to retard and prevent mold and mildew, and that the University shall not be responsible for damage to the room or the personal property of the resident for damages caused by mold and mildew. Residents are responsible for knowing and following procedures related to the recommended procedures as set forth in the Guide to Residence Living related to mildew and mold prevention and removal.
  6. Students have the ability to contract separately for telephone services. Students agree to be responsible for all charges associated with telephone services.
  7. Authorized University personnel may enter student rooms for normal inspection, and maintenance and custodial purposes as outlined. The student's personal property is not subject to search without express approval of the student except when a reasonable belief exists that the room is being used for a purpose which is illegal or which would otherwise seriously interfere with discipline and/or personal safety.
  8. Room assignments may at any time be administratively changed, modified, canceled or terminated by the University in the interests of order, health, discipline, maximum utilization of facilities or disaster after notice to the student as is practical. Disregard for the rights, responsibilities and duties of others, as well as the creation of circumstances which could jeopardize life, limb, or property, are conditions which are not acceptable in University Housing and may be cause for administrative termination of the Housing Contract.
  9. Students may NOT possess the following within the residence halls: weapons, explosives, dangerous articles, or other prohibited items noted in the Guide to Residence Living as well as by Florida Law.
  10. Visitation shall be in accordance with Florida State University policy.
  11. In keeping with the policies of the University, all rooms are assigned without regard to race, creed, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, disability, veterans’ or marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or any other protected group status. However, University Housing makes the following provisions with regards to room assignments: students are assigned to spaces by gender; accommodations are made for students with disabilities; and married couples are not permitted to live together in University Housing facilities.
  12. Sales (including, but not limited to, running a business out of a room) or any type of solicitation is not permitted in the residence halls.
