Yeshiva University Undergraduate Housing Agreement
To provide housing for its undergraduate students, Yeshiva University (the "University") makes residence accommodations ("Housing") available to qualified undergraduates enrolled on a full-time basis who satisfy the criteria below. If at any time your status changes and you are no longer a full-time student in good standing, you will be ineligible for Housing, and you must inform the Director of Housing immediately.
Subject to the University's policies and procedures found on the University's Housing website, the contents of which are incorporated by reference into this Agreement, you are being offered the opportunity to occupy a bed in University Housing for the current academic year. The fees for Housing will be included in your Student Account Statement, including the non-refundable deposit of $250 which was required upon application for housing.
You understand and agree that if you accept this offer, your residence in University Housing is a revocable privilege, not a right, that is at all times subject to your (i) maintaining your status as a full-time undergraduate student in good standing at Yeshiva University; and (ii) complying with all of the University's standards of conduct and Rules and Regulations, (link to Rules and Regulations) as provided on the University's Housing website and elsewhere, as they now exist or as they may be amended in the future. In the event you no longer satisfy the above requirements, you agree to vacate the housing on or before the earlier of the expiration date of your full-time status in good standing or the day specified in any notice of termination given by the University. The University reserves the right to either reassign you to another room in the same building or in a different building, and to assign or reassign other eligible and qualified students as additional occupants of the room to which you have been assigned.
You agree that if you are assigned to a room in an Independent Housing Program ("IHP") building, you will not acquire any rights as a tenant, including but not limited to rent stabilization or other rights to a renewal lease or to select roommates. You further agree to comply with all the applicable terms and conditions governing the University's use and occupancy of IHP units, a copy of which is available for review.
You agree that you will take reasonable care of furnishings provided by the University and be responsible for their return in good repair except for reasonable wear and tear. You further agree to neither remove any of the existing furniture, nor install any large appliances including air conditioners, nor make any alterations, improvements or additions without the University's prior written consent.
You agree that if you do not live up to your obligations under this Housing Agreement, you may be subject to legal action, dismissal from Housing and/or discipline by the University, including suspension or expulsion.
You agree that the University may enter the room assigned to you, whether or not you are present, to conduct an inspection, make repairs, show the room or apartment or to maintain health, safety and security, and standards of conduct, or in the event of emergency.
