Customer Question

I am a college student and unfortunately cannot return to college due to family medical and financial issues. I had previously signed a 1 yr contract in April 2016 for lease from August 2016 July 31, 2017.
I had informed the company any they advised of the financial obligation. My question is that they are not willing to release my apt/room until they lease all of their available units. Are they not practicing the Duty to Mitigate Law?
