Approved by the Board of Governors on March 21, 2013
The purpose of the “Residential Requirement Policy” is to enhance each student's educational experience and personal development.
First and second year students are required to live in university housing. Students whose circumstances meet one of the exemptions or have changed since signing the Housing Agreement may apply for an exemption to this requirement. A list of exemptions may be obtained from the Office of University Housing. Exemptions may be granted based upon acceptable documentation submitted to the director of university housing.
Reasons other than those listed may qualify as exemptions based on the determination and at the discretion of the director of university housing. The vice provost for student experience and engagement shall review appeals of these determinations and the decision upon any such appeal is a final action.
