Students who marry and establish local residence with their spouse may request release from their housing contract if space is not available at the Purdue Village Apartments.

If you find you will be unable to enroll at Purdue University for the 2021 Spring Semester, you must notify your assigned residence in writing at the earliest possible date and state briefly the reason for the change in your plans.
