Residential Living Policy and Guide

Residential Living Policy

On-campus residence affords students added opportunity to become fully involved in college life. All full-time students with 89 or less credit hours must live in the residence halls or with a local parent/guardian (within a 50-mile radius of the university). Students 22 years of age or older are exempt from this policy.

  • Students seeking other exceptions to the Residential Living Policy must submit an application to the Director of Housing and Residence Life.

For additional information about the Residential Living Policy or any other residence hall policies and procedures, please see the Guide to Residence Hall Living in the Student Handbook.
