Living on campus in your first year provides a significant advantage that contributes to your overall student success. Campus residency gives you opportunities to be part of a supportive community where you can more easily make connections with other students, faculty and staff members.
It also connects you to resources and services that help with the transition to college life. Research shows that living on campus positively impacts your engagement, academic achievement, social connectedness and other factors.
All new entering freshman, you will live on campus and carry a residential meal plan for two semesters.
The following exemptions are allowed if you:
If you believe you qualify for an exemption, you must submit the Housing Exemption Request form under "Housing and Dining" in eServices for review by Residential Life at least 30 days before the first day of classes. If your exemption is not approved you will need to move into your on-campus residence hall.
New Entering Freshmen is defined as a student entering any institution for the first time at the undergraduate level. This includes any student who entered with advanced standing (college credits earned through PSEO or Advanced Placement programs).
We encourage you to avoid making any alternate living arrangements before submitting your Housing Exemption Request and getting advanced approval.
