Housing Contract Reassignment FAQs

By reassigning your contract, you are releasing all obligations of the contract to an approved applicant to resume said obligations through the duration of the contract. When you Sub-lease the subtenant must pay rent and comply with the lease terms, but the principal tenant remains ultimately responsible for the lease. The Standard at State College does not allow subleasing and reserves the right to remove any one person not legally covered under an executed contract.

The office does not facilitate advertising available reassignments nor finds potential applicants; however, several residents find success searching through various social media groups.

If you cannot successfully find someone to reassign your contract, we will remove the re-assignment fee from your account and credit the amount paid onto your current account balance.

The bedspace will not be cleaned before the new tenant moves in. All people taking over a lease agree to accept the unit in As-Is condition and must sign an As-Is Unit Acceptance form as part of their leasing documents – this is a requirement for all current term reassignments. If the lease term has not started and is a “Future Lease” the latter does not apply.
