Students are not required to live in Student Housing. There are many other housing options close to campus.
Students who are 21 years of age or older will not be approved for university housing. All residents must be actively enrolled in a program as a full-time student (taking at least 12 credit hours). Residents must sign a lease, and must agree to follow all rules, regulations, and procedures. If a student turns 21 while living in university housing, they are permitted to remain in housing but must still abide by all rules, regulations, and procedures as stated in their signed lease agreement. Should a student move out after turning 21, they will not be permitted to move back into university housing.
Students who have a need for special accommodations should contact someone in the residence life staff and inform them of their individual needs. The staff will make any changes necessary to ensure that these needs are met to the best of their ability. All requests for accommodations should be made in writing to Director of Student Services, Stephanie Watson, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Roommate assignments are made no later than 2 weeks prior to Housing Orientation and move-in day. It is emailed to the email address provided on the housing application. If a student has a roommate preference, he or she can make this request while filling out the housing application. The University will do all that is possible to meet these requests, although there is no guarantee. If a request form is not submitted, roommates will be randomly chosen and assigned by the Director of Student Services. Should a student wish to make a request after the application is submitted but before housing assignments have been made, these requests must be made before housing assignments are finalized. Changes will not be made after assignments are final.
