Answers to some of the most common questions about changes in family/partnership status can be found below.


Spouse has moved away to take a new job and I am no longer eligible for family housing

  • If there is a change in your family status, please inform us right away. If possible, we will try to accommodate you on campus in single housing. Due to the high demand for family housing, students cannot remain in family housing when their partners or families no longer live with them on a full-time basis.
  • If you prefer to live off-campus, regular termination fees will apply.

My spouse will be coming to live here

  • If you live in single housing and your status changes from single to family, it is possible to terminate your assignment early. Depending on when you want to move out, additional rent responsiblity and fees may apply. You can apply for family housing through the allocation or by entering the family housing waiting list, depending on the time of year. Please note that family housing is extremely limited and a transfer directly from single housing at the time of your request is highly unlikely.

I want to move off-campus to move in with my significant other

  • The same policies apply as married students (see above). However, if you are moving out to move in with your significant other, you must provide documentation that proves you are in a long-term committed relationship in order to ensure you have an approved reason for termination.
