I Googled up the lease agreement that is probably what was signed. It has the following provision on re leasing:

C. Relet Policy
The Lease does not allow you to cancel the Lease early. There are two ways you can
Relet your apartment provided you are not in default under the Lease.
Assisted Relet. If you need our assistance in locating a new resident to take over
the Lease, you can complete a Relet and Release Acknowledgement form and
pay a reletting fee equal to 85% of one month’s rent. As stated in Section 11 of
the Lease, the reletting charge is an agreed-to, liquidated amount, covering only
part of our damages - that is, our time, effort, and expense in finding and
processing a replacement. Management has an obligation to give priority to filling
vacant bed spaces/units prior to matching potential customers to the relet list.
Unassisted Relet. If you have someone willing to take over your bed space, you
can complete a Relet and Release Acknowledgement form and pay a reletting
fee of $200.
In either case, the new resident and new guarantor will need to be approved by
us. After the new resident has been approved, the new resident will sign a new
lease and the new resident’s guarantor will sign the Guaranty Agreement. Though
the apartment will have been prepared before the new resident’s arrival, the new
resident must inspect the apartment, note all damages on the move-in condition
form and accept the apartment. The new resident will pay the security deposit,
application fee, prepaid rent, and all other applicable fees and deposits.
