You are required to live on campus during your sophomore year unless you are commuting from home (defined as living exclusively in the permanent and primary residence of a parent or legal guardian).

If you are currently living on campus, but plan to commute from home during your sophomore year, you must do the following:
Complete a Request for Release form .
- Submit a notarized or certified letter from a parent/guardian with a signature and contact information stating that you will be commuting from home.
Current Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors: Housing is not guaranteed after your first two years.

If at the end of the Housing Selection Process, you are not able to select a room because space is not available, the following will happen:
- You may choose to be placed on a waiting list in the event vacancies occur at a later date.
- The Office of Residence Life will provide you with contact information and resources about local off-campus housing options.
- The Housing Agreement becomes legally binding once you select and/or are assigned a living space on-campus, therefore, if housing is not available, you will not be held to the contract.
