Student Support in Residence Halls

Students are required to live on-campus for two academic years (four semesters). Nearly all first-year and sophomore, and many junior, senior and graduate-level students live on-campus.

Students who believe they have met this requirement or one of the college’s other exemptions may request to live off campus.
