The university requires all students under 20 years of age who are enrolled as full-time students, do not live locally, and classified as dependent (except veterans and married couples) must live on campus. Students must reach the age of 20 prior to the start of a major semester to reside off campus.
Students over 20 years of age, who have not previously been a resident, must have Dean of Student’s approval to reside on-campus. We make every effort to house students who desire to reside in the residence halls.
We strive to make the transition into campus housing as smooth and comfortable as possible. On move-in day, our friendly Community Leaders and Resident Advisors will welcome you into the community. There are many ways to get involved on campus.
