What about Off-Campus?

Please review our Residency Policy to see if you qualify for an exemption to our policy which requires all first and second year students to live on campus. If you qualify for an exemption, you must apply and be approved for an exemption by Residence Life before you will be eligible to live off-campus. The exemption application for the 2024-2025 Academic Year will be available in MyHousing beginning February 1st, 2024.
