Off-campus housing application

Because we believe that residence hall living fosters social and emotional development, it is required that all full-time single, undergraduate students live on campus. Students must submit a form to request off-campus housing approval and document their eligibility during the semester prior to living off-campus.

Exemption may be given to students who meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • Live with parents or legal guardians.
  • Have earned a total of at least 90 semester hours of credit before fall semester registration day of the academic year in which off-campus housing is requested. (i.e., senior status) and be at least 21 years of age by September 1 of the academic year in which off campus housing is requested.
  • Be at least 23 years of age by September 1 of the academic year in which off campus housing is requested, regardless of credit hours earned.
  • Need to reserve an apartment due to marriage plans within the semester.
  • Require specialized care as prescribed by a medical doctor.
