2021-2022 guide to housing selection

Full-time undergraduate students are guaranteed and are expected to live on-campus or commute from their permanent address. Off-campus releases are offered to a select number of eligible students. The college anticipates releasing approximately 50 students off-campus for the 2021-2022 academic year.

Returning students interested in changing status for the upcoming year are expected to identify their preferred status on the Housing Status Application before February 26, 2021. This is the one time when students can freely request a change of housing status.

Students who do not complete the Housing Status Application will continue as an on-campus resident or commuter, based on their current housing status. Current off-campus students who do not complete the Housing Status Application will be assigned to on-campus resident status.

COVID Updates | Distant Learner status will not be available for the 2021-2022 academic year. Distant Learners will return to resident status unless they apply and are approved for off-campus housing. 

Commuters who planned to reside on campus and decided to commute (between June 8 and September 4) given the environment surrounding COVID-19 will return to resident status unless they apply to commute OR apply and are approved for off-campus housing. 

ON-CAMPUS HOUSING STATUS

Full-time undergraduate students are guaranteed on-campus housing. Full-time undergraduate students whose permanent address is more than 50 miles from the College are required to live on campus.

Current students who intend to live on-campus will be assigned through a Pre-Selection Process or General Selection.

Commuter and off-campus students that no longer meet the qualifications of their current status will be included in General Selection, or may opt to participate in a pre-selection process.

OFF-CAMPUS RESIDENT STATUS

Eligible students who apply for and are approved (by the College) may rent from a private landlord, in non-College owned housing.  An off-campus lease should not be signed until a student has received formal approval from the College on March 12, 2021.

The college anticipates releasing approximately 50 students off-campus for the 2021-2022 academic year.

Students who do not submit the Housing Status Application by the deadline will not be considered for release later in the year.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Junior or senior, or 20 years of age on the first day of the Fall 2021 semester
  • Minimum 2.5 cumulative GPA

  • Good financial
 and conduct standing

Current residents not approved to live off-campus will be included in General Selection.

Members of a fraternity or sorority may be eligible for a "conditional off-campus approval" until the chapter submits a complete list of house residents, as well as three viable alternate residents, for the 2021-2022 academic year. Once a complete list of residents and alternates is submitted to the Office of Greek Life, members who do not appear on the housing assignment list and applied for off-campus living may be granted an "off-campus approval.”

Students released off-campus will not be issued a General Selection Admission Ticket.

COMMUTER STATUS

Students interested in commuting, must reside with a parent or legal guardian at an address within a 50-mile radius of the College. Students who are approved for a change to commuter status and are found living in an off-campus property may face student conduct action and will be billed for on-campus room and board.

Current residents not approved to commute will be included in the General Selection process.

Students released to commuter status will not be issued a General Selection Admission Ticket.

NON-PARTICIPATION IN THE HOUSING PROCESS

Students not intending to return due to graduation, transferring, withdrawing or taking a leave of absence, or studying abroad during Fall 2021 may elect not to participate in the housing processes. These students will not be issued a General Selection Admission Ticket.

Important Note: Students who select a 2021-2022 assignment but decide to study abroad or take a leave of absence during Fall 2021 will forfeit their assignment. These students will not be guaranteed their selected assignment upon return, but are guaranteed on-campus housing. The College will work to assign them prior to their return.
