Cancel Housing Contract

How hard is it to prove a change in financial situation to get out of a housing contract? My contract began only this semester (Spring 10) and will end in May.

    From the link above:
    If there is NOT sufficient demand as noted above, the Housing Agreement can only be cancelled if student’s affiliation with the university is terminated by: 1) withdrawal from the University, (2) academic dismissal, (3) graduation, (4) participating in a University approved study abroad program, (5) active military induction, (6) death of an immediate family member/guardian, or (7) long-term hospitalization of the student.

    I guess you can try to contact them and explain your situation, but it might be a bit difficult. I'm surprised that a "financial" situation isn't considered one of the permitted reasons. =\
