Lease Renewal Process

If residents are interested in renewing their lease, either for their same unit/room or for a different unit/room, they will need to communicate this with Student Living via their renewal process. Once a resident states their interest in renewing their lease, Student Living will send them a renewal lease to review and sign electronically. All questions or concerns regarding renewal leasing should be directed to Student Living.
