Apartments - Graduate & Family Housing

  • Requests to transfer apartments are granted on an availability basis
  • Transfer applications are in the Graduate & Family Housing Office. We only transfer people to different apartments between October 1 and March 31
  • A required $250 transfer fee covers the cost of cleaning and preparing your vacated apartment and the rent lost when you have keys to both apartments. Not all transfer requests will be granted
    • Two situations in which you will not be charged the $250 transfer fee:
      1) Medical Transfer - This is a documented medical situation where you need to move out of your current apartment. Written documentation is required from your physician stating your reason for requesting a change to another apartment
      2) Pregnancy - Situation where you need to move because you are expecting an additional child and will exceed the maximum occupancy of your current apartment. Proof of pregnancy with estimated due date must be attached to the transfer request form at the time of request. You will be moved during your third trimester
