What does “individual lease” mean?

Individual lease means that the student is responsible for their space only. If your roommate does not pay his/her installments that has NO effect on your status. If your roommate leaves the apartment for any reason you are NOT responsible for his/her portion of rent.

What happens if I do not like my Roommate?

First, you will want to talk to your RA. Usually roommate issues are a matter of communication and your RA can facilitate communication between roommates. If you still having a problem, you can request a room change by completing the request form and dropping it off at the Housing Office. If spaces are available we will allow room changes.

How do I cancel my lease?

A student can request to cancel your contract by completing a cancellation request form.  This is only a request and needs to be accompanied by a letter stating why the student wishes to request cancellation or provide proof that your education at IPFW is not continuing.  If a cancellation is granted, the minimum fee is $400.  If a cancellation is not granted, then the student will be held financially responsible for the remainder of the lease.

What information will I get about my roommate?

Roommate information is limited.  The information we gather is used to make the best match possible for all residents.  Once matches are made,  then generally the name, phone number, and e-mail information is distributed.

Can I move-in early?

Students can request to move in early. This is a request, and a fee will be assessed per day that students move in prior to the lease start date. Go to the forms section of our Web site in order to obtain the request form.
