If you do not have housing but are looking to find a roommate or sublease

Subletting is when you want to move and find someone to live in the apartment and pay rent in your place. Typically, in order to sublet, you have the subtenant sign a lease with you, called a sublease. You actually become the subtenant’s landlord. The new lease between you and your subtenant has nothing to do with the lease between you and your landlord. You are still responsible for all rent, damages, and all requirements and restrictions under the lease between you and your landlord. In a few cases, the landlord may let you terminate your lease and will sign the new tenant to a separate lease. If you have an individual lease, most often you will need to find someone to relet your space in the apartment; if you are successful, the property manager will sign the new tenant to a contract and cancel yours.

If you are currently seeking someone to sublet your apartment, choose the first link above to key in the necessary data. Before attempting to sublease your apartment, please check with your landlord and your signed lease to be sure that subletting is permitted. Your landlord may require approval of the new tenant; check your lease for details. You may also wish to consult our attorneys at Student Legal Services for assistance.
