The intention is to create a space for students who are in student teaching placements, internships etc. who desire different sleeping times than the average residence hall tends to offer as easily.

Although the target audience is Senior students who are working on their last requirements before graduation, other students not in placements can also apply, citing a need and desire for a focused academic living community. Junior students interested in this space can also apply, but will be housed based on availability after need for senior students is met. First-year and sophomore students will not be housed on this floor.

Off-campus housing application

Because we believe that residence hall living fosters social and emotional development, it is required that all full-time single, undergraduate students live on campus. All students intending to live off-campus – even those who meet the standard exemptions below – are required to submit the form to request off-campus housing approval and document their eligibility during the semester prior to living off-campus. All full-time undergraduate students will be billed for on campus housing until the Off-Campus Housing Request form has been submitted AND the request has been approved by the Housing Appeals Committee.

Exemption may be given to students who meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • Live with parents or legal guardians.
  • Have earned a total of at least 90 semester hours of credit before fall semester registration day of the academic year in which off-campus housing is requested. (i.e., senior status) and be at least 21 years of age by September 1 of the academic year in which off campus housing is requested.
  • Be at least 23 years of age by September 1 of the academic year in which off campus housing is requested, regardless of credit hours earned.
  • Need to reserve an apartment due to marriage plans within the semester.
  • Require specialized care as prescribed by a medical doctor.
