2014 Graduate & Family Housing Renewal Process
Starting February 17, 2014 until February 28, 2014, all East Village, University Village and Westbrook House residents will be able to renew their current apartment through STARS. Online renewal will only be offered to residents wishing to continue residency in their current apartment for Summer 2014 and beyond. When logged into STARS, there will be three renewal options. These options are listed below with a brief explanation:
- SUMMER 2014: This renews the apartment for ONLY SUMMER 2014.
- SUMMER/FALL 2014: This renews the apartment for SUMMER 2014 and FALL 2014.
- SUMMER 2014/FALL 2014/SPRING 2015: This renews the apartment for SUMMER 2014, FALL 2014, and SPRING 2015.
If you are not renewing online, ask yourself these questions:
I am leaving for Summer Break, but I want to come back in the Fall?
If you are not planning on staying through the Summer, but will be returning for the Fall 2014 semester, you need to turn in an “Intent to Vacate” form by Friday, April 11, 2014, and place yourself on the waiting list in-person at Seal Hall. After May 1, 2014, UHDS will begin to offer leases to students for Fall 2014. The only way to guarantee space for Fall 2014 is to renew for Summer 2014 AND Fall 2014.
I am not renewing at all and plan to leave at the end of my lease term?
As a reminder, your current lease states: all residents leaving GFH must complete an Intent to Vacate form 30 days prior to their move out date. If you are not renewing, you must complete an “Intent to Vacate” form by Friday, April 11, 2014.
I can’t or plan not to renew online, but I want to stay in the same apartment?
Residents who do not plan to renew online must contact the Graduate and Family Housing Office in Seal Hall 309-298-3321.
RENEW YOUR SAME APARTMENT ON STARS!
Residents wishing to stay in their current apartment for Summer 2014 and beyond, will not be allowed to renew for their apartment after the February 28, 2014 deadline. Individuals who do not renew will need to reapply for housing and may be placed on the GFH waiting list. University Housing and Dining Services will attempt to reassign residents back into their current apartment if they do not renew for Summer 2014 and beyond, however, no guarantees can be made.
