Verification of Housing Agreement

This is an agreement between Howard Payne University and the named student, and with the parent or guardian of the student if the student is under eighteen years of age, for a residence hall assignment only. It does not constitute a commitment of admission to the University. This agreement may be terminated only under the conditions specified herein. Students and parents/guardians are urged to carefully read this agreement. When this form is completed and returned to the Office of Student Life, it becomes a binding agreement between the student (the parent or guardian if the student is under 18 years of age) and the University. Howard Payne University requires students to live in the residence halls for four long semesters (i.e., fall and spring semesters) unless students meet one or more of the following exemptions: 1) living with parents, 2) 60 academic credit hours, 3) married, and/or 4) 22 years of age. Students under the age of 17 are not allowed to live in university housing. University housing is reserved for students who are registered as full-time students (12 or more semester credit hours). This agreement is binding for the full academic year, does not guarantee assignment to a particular room or residence hall, and is binding regardless of the room assignment.
