Why do I need to re-contract for University Housing?

Re-contracting allows University Housing to plan ahead, and more importantly, provide you with an opportunity to continue to live on campus. Students have the option of either renewing their unit or picking a new unit for the next academic year before new incoming students. About 50% of campus residents re-contract due to the ease of living, abundance of living options and the affordability of living on campus compared to off campus housing so close to campus.
