Contract renewal is for the 2018-19 Academic Year. However, if you plan to withdraw, graduate from Purdue University, or leave for a Study Abroad Program or Co-op position at the end of the 2018 Fall Semester, then you will be released from your housing contract for the 2019 Spring Semester and will not be billed housing charges for the second semester. You will have the opportunity to notify your residence’s main office in October 2018 that you’re not planning to return to Purdue University for the second semester.
If your plans change and you will be attending classes at Purdue’s West Lafayette campus for the 2019 Spring Semester, then your housing contract will be in force and you should contact the Central Assignments Office at Smalley Center for reassignment to an available space.
Students who will be on a co-op position, a study abroad program, or who are called to military active duty during the fall semester but want to return to University Residences for the 2019 Spring Semester will have the opportunity to sign a contract for the spring semester beginning in October of 2018 at www.housing.purdue.edu.
