This document constitutes an agreement between the undersigned student-resident (hereinafter called “resident”) and Adelphi University (hereinafter called “University”). This agreement sets forth the terms and conditions pertaining to the occupancy of a residence hall at Adelphi University. In addition, you are agreeing to the terms, conditions, and policies contained in the Guide to Student Life, as well as other publications such as the University Bulletin, the Room Condition Form, The Code of Conduct, and other University policy documents. This also constitutes acceptance of membership in the student government of the residence hall to which the student is assigned. No guarantee is made concerning the number of occupants in a room. If a vacancy occurs in a room, the remaining student(s) in that room will accept a new occupant or be relocated to another room with or without a roommate. Residential Life reserves the right to place another student in a vacant space without notification. Residents may not exhibit behavior that intimidates or interferes with the use of the space by others, specifically, but not limited to, behavior that attempts to force a roommate to move out of the room or prevent a new roommate from moving in. A converted triple room rate is a special rate used while three students are living in the room. The special rate reverts to the double rate when three students are no longer assigned to the room. Failure to comply may result in termination of the agreement.
Except as specified by agreement, residence hall space is provided to University students on a priority basis each semester as follows:
a. Registered, full-time undergraduate students;
b. Registered, part-time undergraduate students;
Failure to maintain class attendance or registration constitutes a breach of this agreement and will result in loss of housing privileges.
Except in the case of midyear graduation or withdrawal from the institution, this contract is binding from the date of occupancy to the end of the current academic year. The agreement period begins at 10:00 a.m. on the day before the first day of classes and ends 24 hours after the resident’s last exam or 5:00 p.m. on the last day of final examinations, whichever is earlier. A resident may be released from this agreement only if approved by a special committee that shall review each request individually and with reference to prevailing University policy for granting such waivers.
Residents shall pay to the University a $300 non-refundable deposit with this agreement to request a space in the residence halls for the ensuing agreement period. $200 of the deposit will be applied to your student account and $100 will be retained as a damage deposit. Person(s) found responsible for damage will have financial responsibility for the cost incurred to fix or abate the damage. When the person(s) cannot be identified as responsible for damages, all residents of a room, suite, wing, floor, or residence hall will share equal financial responsibility for the cost incurred to fix or abate the damage. Liability for damage may exceed the amount held as damage deposit.
Completion and delivery of this agreement by the student does not constitute acceptance by the University. This agreement is approved and accepted by the University only when signed by authorized personnel in the Office of Residential Life and Housing.
