Guys, I need your help. I'm currently living in the University's hostel, and will be shifting to an apartment soon.

However, my University administration wanted us to give a permission letter saying that my parents would allow me to do so (It's just as a security measure, so that the administration would not be responsible if anything happen to me during my stay outside).

I even can't think the suitable title of my letter and how to write the contents in it. Plz help me.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Subject: Permission for my son to reside outside of the University's hostel

The purpose of this letter is to give full permission for my son, Mohd Azwan, roll number 10111, to reside outside the University's hostel. I fully understand the concern expressed by your administration in not recommending that my son stay outside the hostel, but I am prepared to take full responsibility for my son's welfare during his residence as a student.

Should you require any further confirmation, please contact me at Email Removed or [mailing address].

Yours sincerely,


[first name] Okazaki
