We hope that residents will not need to cancel their application or lease, but we understand that situations happen which make it necessary. In the event a resident must cancel their application or lease, email your community's staff at either Miramar or Momentum Village as soon as possible to begin the process.
A student who has applied to either Miramar or Momentum Village may cancel their application IF they have not signed a lease. To cancel the application, send an email to the appropriate community. When canceling the application, keep in mind that the application/administration fee is non-refundable. If a deposit was paid, it will be refunded.
A student who has signed a lease may cancel that lease by following proper procedures outlined in the resident's lease. The information below is only a summary - refer to your lease for full details.
Miramar Policy, Deadlines and Fee Schedule
Prior to August 1 (for Fall move-in) and January 1 (for Spring move-in), resident (not parent/guardian) must submit written notification of cancellation (email or letter) and pay a $500 lease termination fee. After the above dates, resident must give 30 days written notice and pay a lease termination fee equal to 2 (two) monthly installment payments. Written notice of cancellation must be sent to email@example.com. All cancellations are subject to review and approval.
Momentum Village Policy, Deadlines and Fee Schedule*
Written notification of desire to cancel the lease must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. All cancellations are subject to review and approval.
Important Note: Once a student moves-in to Momentum Village, the lease may only be terminated if the resident is no longer attending/enrolled at TAMU-CC**, has military orders to leave the area, or officially withdraws from the University.
*This information applies to 2017-2018 leases only. Prior leases have a different cancellation policy that is available in the lease or by contacting the office via email or phone at 361.825.6200.
**Enrollment is only required for the fall and spring semesters.
The management may terminate a resident's lease with due cause as outlined in the resident's lease. The most common causes of lease termination are discussed below.
Failure to pay rent
Residents are expected to pay for their housing either in a lump sum at the beginning of the semester or on the 1st (first) of every month during the lease term. If a student fails to submit payment by the 1st of each month, the resident will be charged late fees as described in the lease until payment is made. Should a resident fail to make payment, management may begin the eviction process as outlined in the lease. Please review your lease for important deadlines and late payment fee information.
Forced removal from housing (eviction)
Residents may be evicted from their room for violating certain provisions in the lease and/or violating the Student Code of Conduct. Residents evicted for these reasons must move out of their room in the time frame provided in the official communication from either the Student Conduct Officer or housing management. The resident is still responsible for any rent and other monies owed through the end of the lease. For example, if a student is evicted in February and the lease goes through May, the student must still pay rent for March, April and May.
Subleasing and Guests
Residents may not sublease their room to another individual. Additionally, residents may not ‘give’ their room to anyone else or allow others to live with them. A resident attempting to sublease their room may be subject to eviction. Please refer to your lease for additional information regarding subleasing and guest policies.
