The Residence Hall Housing Agreement is binding for the entire academic year. This Agreement is strictly adhered to with exceptions made under special circumstances. Students who wish to request a release may do so by completing the Housing Agreement Release Request form and submitting it to the department of Housing and Residence Life. Submitting a request for a release does not guarantee release nor should acceptance of the request by the department of Housing and Residence Life be construed as a commitment to release.

Residents requesting a Residence Hall Housing Agreement release must provide written documentation that a significant, uncontrollable, and unforeseen change in circumstance has occurred, since the time the Agreement was signed, which has created a special housing need that cannot be provided by the department of Housing and Residence Life.

The Process for Requesting a Release

1. Resident must obtain, complete, and submit a Housing Agreement Release Request to Housing and Residence Life.
2. Depending on the reason for the release request, the resident must also provide a written letter outlining the following:
- The reason(s) for requesting a Housing Agreement Release Request.
- The change in circumstance that prevents the resident from living in on campus housing.
- How the resident's housing needs cannot be accommodated through on campus housing.

The request will be reviewed by Housing and Residence Life and a decision will be communicated to the resident via Tulane e-mail within 7-10 business days.
