If a resident is not able to fulfill the term of the housing contract due to study abroad, withdrawal or dismissal from the institution, they may identify a replacement who meets the eligibility requirements for Champlain College housing and 194 Saint Paul Street and request to re-assign space to that individual. The Department of Residential Life must approve the request for housing contract obligations to transfer. If the resident is unsuccessful in identifying a replacement or a proposed replacement is not approved, the Department of Residential Life will work with the remaining resident(s) of the apartment to identify and pull-in another eligible student to fulfill the remainder of the housing contract. If this is unsuccessful, the Department of Residential Life will fill the vacancy.
A resident who does not fulfill the housing contract outside of these circumstances is financially responsible for the full term (11.5 months for non-graduating residents or 9 months for graduating residents) of the housing contract, whether or not the assigned bedroom space is occupied for the duration of the term.
