Contracts

Contracting for UMKC Residential Life begins in December and is open until spaces are filled. We encourage you to fill out your contract early to have the best chance at getting your preferences (preferences are not guaranteed and do not relieve the student from the contract if alternate accommodations are assigned). Please note that to submit a contract, official admission to the university is required.

Contracts are for the entire academic year, or for the part of the academic year remaining after the effective start date of the contract. There are contracts available for the Spring Semester only and for the summer. Apartment contracts include the Fall, Winter and Spring Break periods. The residence halls are closed during these times, and other accommodations must be found during break periods.
