Summer 2016 Contract Release Process

A few weeks ago we sent out a survey asking for your input regarding 2016 summer housing obligations, and an overwhelming 70% replied that they would like to be released from your current three-term contract obligation.

What does this mean to you?

Based on the survey results, the Office of Housing and Residence Life has decided to release students from their three-term obligation for the Summer of 2016.

If you wish to cancel your summer obligation for summer 2016, you will have the following deadlines:

·       ** Extended date ** January 11 – February 15, 2016 – Student will be released from contract without obligation

·         February 16 – April 1, 2016 – Student will be released from contract with a $250 obligation

·         After April 1, 2016 – Student will be released from contract with a $250 obligation plus a $100 late fee 

If you choose to stay for the Summer 2016 term, UNCW retains the right to potentially move you to a comparable apartment space to maintain the safety and security of all of our residents.
