Residence Halls

Residence Halls

What to expect while living on campus?

Residence Life provides an environment where students are supported academically and socially. You will be engaged with co-curricular opportunities to build a sense of belonging. Living on campus gives you the opportunity to connect with a wide range of students inside and outside of the classroom while enriching their college experience and creating friendships that last a lifetime.

Living Requirements

A few rules to live by.

Students can only live off campus if they meet one of these:

  • Are over 23 years of age by the start of the school year
  • Have senior status (over 90 credit hours completed) by the start of the school year
  • Live within 30 driving miles to campus 
  • Are married and/or have a dependent child
  • Have a medical reason or accommodation need on file with Student Health or Disability Services

The hard facts.

  • If for any reason you do not want to live on campus, you must provide a valid, documented medical reason for approval.
  • If you don’t provide accurate information on the Residence Hall Agreement, Housing Questionnaire or Residence Hall Application it may result in disciplinary action. 
  • If you provide false information about your residency status you will be charged for room and board.
  • If you don’t contract for housing (even though you’re required to do so), you will still be charged for room and board.
