All newly admitted, full-time, first-year students are required to live on campus during the fall and spring of their freshman year. A student may apply, through the Housing and Residential Life office, to be exempt from this policy if one of the following applies:

  • Student will be living with their parent or legal guardian and will be residing within 50 miles of the Housing and Residential Life office
  • Student is married
  • Student has dependent(s), is a parent or has legal guardianship of a sibling
  • Student is 20 or older

Any student requesting exemption from campus housing must complete a request to be exempted from housing as well as supply the required documentation.

Research indicates that students who live on campus and become involved on campus tend to not only make better grades but also persist and graduate.
