The Housing Agreement

The Housing Agreement Form constitutes a contract between the student and Vassar College. When the student signs the agreement, they are assigned a space in the residences. The assignment cannot be transferred to another student. The agreement remains in effect in the event of an official room change. The agreement period begins on the Move-In date designated for the student resident and ends on the Move-Out date designated for the student resident. These dates are set forth in by the college and can be viewed on the Academic Calendar. Upon move-out, the student is required to remove all of their personal belongings and leave the room in its original condition.

Signing the Housing Agreement Form constitutes an agreement to abide by the rules and regulations of the college and the Office of Residential Life, including those published in the Student Handbook and on the Residential Life website. Residents are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that demonstrates respect for college property, fellow residents, and guests.

Cancellation/Termination of Agreement

In the case of leave of absence or withdrawal, the Housing Agreement between the resident and the college is automatically terminated. The room must be vacated and left in good order, keys must be returned to the Residential Operation Center (located on the fourth floor of Main House) within 48 hours after the day of leave/withdrawal or by the end of the semester’s occupancy period (whichever is sooner), and the resident must officially check out.

Students deemed ineligible for college housing or denied housing privileges for violations of the Housing Agreement remain financially liable for the entire term of their agreement unless other arrangements are made.
