A request for License Agreement Release (LAR) is required after a student has checked in to their room space.
Students submitting this request are petitioning a release from the University Housing License Agreement prior to the end of the academic year in accordance to approved or extenuating circumstances after check-in.
The License Agreement is for the entirety of the academic year for your housing assignment for the full academic year (academic year plus summer for Family Housing). The License Agreement contains the requirements, terms and conditions of your license to reside in on-campus housing. Once signed, a student is responsible for the terms of this agreement. Release from the License Agreements are not automatic and should be considered denied until an official approval is received.
Prior to submitting a request for a License Agreement Release, students are expected to meet with their Community Director to discuss their change in circumstances. The Community Director can assist students with navigating the LAR process. After meeting with hall staff, requests for release from the University Housing License Agreement must be submitted through the ASU My Housing online portal.
Please note, for residents of Greek Leadership Village: Any LAR must be approved by both ASU and the students' Fraternity/Sorority before being effective. Students should contact their National Organization, Housing Corporation/Advisory Board and/or the Chapter Leadership (President, House Manager, Advisor) to request to be released from their housing obligation.
All required and supportive documentation for an LAR Request must be submitted at time of request. If sufficient documentation is not submitted, the LAR Request will remain in denied status.
On a case-by-case basis, LAR Requests are reviewed for extenuating circumstances occurring after signing the housing license agreement. Supportive documentation is required for requesting an extenuating circumstance review. A significant medical or financial hardship that has occurred since the date of signing the License Agreement will only be reviewed if sufficient documentation demonstrating the recent hardship is included. LAR Requests without documentation will be denied.
In the event the University suggests, encourages, or requires students to vacate the residence halls on the advisement, recommendation or requirement of federal, state and/or local authorities, the University may establish LAR requirements and processes in response to such circumstances. The University will determine the amount, if any, of housing and meal plan adjustments, credits, or refunds. The University may also extend the deadline for such adjustments, credits, or refunds beyond the normally established deadline.
If you are having roommate conflicts and/or your situation could be improved with a room/house change, it is critical that you reach out to your professional hall staff to help you resolve your situation. Hall staff details can be found on the “staff” tab of the webpage for your residence hall. LAR Requests for these reasons are not eligible for review if hall staff can accommodate your situation.
Extenuating circumstances eligible for a petition for LAR:
*Petition for LAR based on Medical Petition for Release require current documentation of the student’s medical condition(s) from a licensed clinical professional or health care provider in the United States thoroughly familiar with the student’s condition(s).
**Petition for LAR based on Financial Hardship must include documentation from the ASU Financial Aid office that states a student’s exhaustion of all available forms of aid and estimated family contribution.
**Petition for LAR will not be approved for financial need based solely on the availability of alternative off-campus housing in the absence of compelling financial need.
