Cancelling your Housing Agreement
Students wishing to cancel their Housing Agreement for the residence halls must fill out the online Intent to Vacate form. Students at East Lake wanting to cancel their agreement must fill out a paper Intent to Vacate form at the Housing Office. You will also need to contact your RA to be sure you follow the appropriate check out procedures.

Meal plan changes can be made at anytime throughout the semester for those students wanting to increase their current plan. Students wanting to decrease their meal plan can do so during the first two weeks of each semester only. Stop by the Housing Office, 235 Kryzsko Commons, to make your meal plan changes.
Mailboxes are located in the lobby of each complex. Except for flyers originating from the WSU Housing & Residence Life Office and other University departments, only mail addressed to a specific student will be placed in the mailboxes.
