How can I get out of my housing contract?
For most students, it's not likely you'll be able to break the contract that you signed and will be held to the terms of the Housing & Dining Contract.
Housing Contracts are non-negotiable and cannot be canceled even when one of the hall release conditions listed below are met.
Please, please, please DON'T sign any off-campus lease unless you receive official written notice of a contract release from Housing. It could mean that you pay two rents!
Contract releases are made for students who meet one of these requirements:
- An academic requirement such as student teaching, study abroad, or a co-op experience that is further than 40 miles from Menomonie
- No longer attending UW-Stout
If you do not meet one of the requirements above, you may request a Housing & Dining Contract Exemption/Release request. Please note that if you have signed a contract, it is unlikely that you will be approved to cancel your contract.
See the Housing Gateway to submit the appropriate contract release request.
