NIU encourages all students to contact Students’ Legal Assistance for free lease reviews. Knowing what is in your lease before signing is an essential aspect of becoming a new renter.

 

If you want to be released from your housing contract, please complete one of the following forms:

Fill out a residence hall contract release request if you wish to move out of your residence hall due to marriage, Greek membership or another exceptional cause.

Fill out an application to commute if you're a freshman who wishes to commute from home instead of living in the residence halls.
