Required Housing Policy & Exemptions

Required Housing Policy

Full time freshmen and sophomores are required to live on campus.

Exemptions to this policy include students who are:

  • Veterans of military service (181 days or more)
  • Married
  • The primary caregiver for dependent children
  • 21 years of age or older
  • Members of fraternities or sororities living in the chapter house (sophomores only)
  • Commuting from their parents' permanent home and primary residence (50 miles or less).

Requests for exemption based upon special circumstances (defined as unique and unusual) will also be considered.

The burden of providing necessary documentation and evidence to support an exemption request rests with the student. Students, who have provided false information in an exemption request or fail to comply with this required housing policy, will be charged a $1,000 non-compliance fee per semester.  Students may also be adjudicated for violating the student code of conduct for providing false information.  Students are asked to provide a housing exemption request for each academic year they are required to live on campus.
