Subletting your Campus Living Contract April 13, 2012

This post will clarify some of the terms surrounding the subletting process, and outline Housing Office policies on subletting/assigning residence contracts.

Strictly speaking, subletting and assigning have slightly different meanings. “Subletting” is when someone assigns their residence contract to another person for only part of the contract length. For example, someone might sublet their eight month contract for only the third month, then return in the fourth month. “Assigning” a contract, on the other hand, is when the full length of the contract is transferred to another person and the original resident does not intend to move back.

However, when the Campus Living Housing Office uses the term “sublet” it is usually used in the sense of “assign” as defined above. This is due to the more common use of “sublet” to mean “assign” by our residents. When a resident asks us if they can “sublet their room”, they are in fact wanting to “assign their contract”, according to the definitions above. The Housing Office does not typically permit temporary subletting, only the full assignment of a residence contract.

As of September 1, 2012, the resident applying to sublet/assign their contract will need to pay a fee. The new applicant, on the other hand, will pay an application fee on their application but not the sublet fee. Once the fee is paid, both the current resident and the applicant will sign a form to assign the terms of the contract from the former to the latter. Also as of September 1, 2012 residents may only assign their contract to a UWinnipeg student, and not to students of other institutions.

One question we get asked often is if our residence buildings offer parking spots for students. Dedicated residence parking spaces are available only at Lions Manor, but there are parking options available for our other residences. In this post I will reveal these options and explain their pros and cons.
