Family Housing

For Family Housing, 46 apartment units are available in the Canal St/Hill Apartments.  Each unit is a two bedroom, two-story apartment with central heat & air, basic cable, wireless internet access, local telephone service and apartment stove furnished.

Rental rates are available at the Housing Office, Bailey 108 and on the Family Housing application.  A telephone is available for each apartment if needed as the apartment becomes occupied.

To be eligible for occupancy in Family Housing, the Lessee must be married or a single parent with a minor child in residence and enrolled as a full time student at Delta State University.  The Lessee must maintain the full-time student status throughout the year except during the Summer.  A full-time student is a student who has a semester hour load of at least 12 hours undergraduate, 9 hours graduate.  The Lessee must be enrolled in at least 3 academic hours during either session of Summer school to remain in the complex during the Summer months.  Audited hours are not considered for full-time status.

There is a waiting list for the family housing apartments.  A deposit of $100.00 paid to the Housing Office is required to place a student’s name on the waiting list.  This deposit is refundable at any time should the student wish to take his/her name off the list or at the time he/she vacates the apartment with proper notification and without damages.  Assignments are made in order of receipt of application and after admission to the University.

A lease serves as the apartment housing contract and may be amended as needed with notification to residents.  The term of this lease shall be effective beginning the date the contract is signed.  The rent payable by the Lessee shall be due on or before the first day of each month.  Rent is subject to change.  Non-payment or rent when due or breach of any of the terms and conditions of this lease by Lessee shall give the University the right to terminate this lease.  The Lessee is responsible for any damages to the apartment.  Charges will be determined by the Housing Office.  If you do not follow proper check-in and check-out procedures, your apartment deposit will be forfeited.  To have the deposit refunded, the Lessee must clean the apartment to the University’s satisfaction, check-out in person with the housing staff, be exempt from charges, and have a paid in full account with the University.  Charges in excess of the deposit will be billed to the student lessee.

All family housing residents must abide by all DSU policies and procedures in the Student Handbook, other university publications, and notices posted by university officials.  Failure to comply may result in eviction.
