Residency Requirement

Beginning Fall 2021, all new full-time undergraduate freshmen are required to live on campus for their first four semesters (not including summer and winter sessions) unless they are over 20 years of age before the first day of the fall semester or are commuting from the home of their parent(s) or legal guardian(s) within a 50-mile radius of campus. A full-time student is enrolled for 12 or more credit hours per semester. Falling below 12 credits is not grounds for breaking your housing agreement.

As part of the 2-year residency requirement, you will complete a new housing agreement for the following year and will have the opportunity to select your specific housing location during the HOST (Housing Option Selection Time) process.

Why a 2-year requirement?

With the success of our students at the forefront of this decision, the plan is rooted in data relating to student success, access to support services, and offers a transition and more healthy pathway toward life after college.
