Undergraduate On-Campus Residence Requirement
Students who are single and are under 20 years of age on September 1 of the respective fall semester or on January 18 of the respective spring semester, or have less than 30 hours are required to reside on campus unless living at home with parents or if granted an exception by the university.
Exceptions may include residing locally with a family member, military status, or a parent of young children. Each request will be considered individually.
To be considered for an exception, students must complete and submit a Residence Life Housing Exception Request to the Housing Office.
Steps to request a waiver:
1. Obtain and complete the Housing Exception Request form from the Residence Life Office.
2. Requests for housing exceptions should be submitted prior to July 15th for the Fall semester and December 1st for the Spring semester. All requests will be reviewed by Housing within 10 business days from their receipt. At the students discretion, requests that have been denied may be appealed directly to the Interim Senior Vice President for Fiscal and Student Affairs. Information on this process will be provided directly to you in your denial letter.
3. Until a written notice is received confirming exception from the requirement, students who request exceptions to the policy should not make arrangements to reside off campus.
