Residents of Legacy Park are unable to reserve a space in Legacy Park for the next year, as it is designated for our freshmen residents only.


Residential Life employs an Apartment Manager and Resident Assistants to help students living in the apartments by supervising maintenance requests, maintaining a safe environment within the apartments, and providing programming for residents to get to know one another, as well as assisting with various resident concerns.  University Park consists of an Apartment Manager and five Resident Assistants.  University Park staff members reside in Neilson D 102, Kidd C 202, and Caruthurs D 101.  Park Place consists of an Apartment Manager and three Resident Assistants.  Park Place staff members reside in McFarland B 301. Our newest on campus apartment complex, Legacy Park, is staffed by an Apartment Manager and three Resident Assistants. Legacy Park staff members reside in Pearce B 101 and Harper A 101.  Residents are encouraged to seek out a staff member should they need any assistance while residing in the campus apartments.  Information related to which staff members are on duty at specific times is emailed to residents in the beginning of each quarter and can be found posted on the doors of the staff apartments, which are listed above.

Lease Release Information

At any time throughout the year that a student desires to break a lease, a lease release form needs to be completed and submitted.  The Office of Residential Life will begin accepting lease release forms up to one month prior to the end of the quarter and up until the first day of classes for the new quarter.  Approval or denial of a lease release does not grant a student off campus approval.  A committee meets to approve or deny lease releases (typically on Mondays of each week, as needed).  The student will be notified of the committee's decision by email per the address listed on the lease release form.  In the event that a student is denied, the student may opt to cancel their lease for the next quarter by moving out of the apartment and paying a cancellation fee equal to one quarter's room rent.  Again, this option does not grant off campus approval.  Off campus approval forms should be submitted to the Office of Student Life. 

Lease release forms may be obtained from the Residential Life office during business hours.
