I have applied for Spring semester but haven’t heard back. Could I cancel my lease if I do not get in?

Before deciding to sign your lease when looking for FAMU apartments, you may want to consider whether or not your lease may be terminated or negotiable if having to cancel your lease. Prior to moving in, you should explain your circumstance to your leasing staff. You may just be able to put a deposit down in order to secure a potential living space until you hear back from the school.

However, you may consider still moving into your new place and signing a semester lease.
