Off-Campus Residents

Although we are moving to online classes, and some students may decide to go home to family, it is not advisable to break (suddenly end) a lease. There could be serious financial implications including a reduction in credit score if you break a lease. A lease is a legally binding agreement. Please review your lease and communicate with your landlord directly. See the information found here about moving out. No matter what is stated in your lease, you should give your landlord at minimum a 30-day notice.
