Residency Requirement

John Carroll University has a 2-year residency requirement.  The residency requirement states:  All entering students of traditional age not commuting from home are required to live on campus during their first two years.  Commuting is defined as living exclusively in the permanent and primary residence of a parent or legal guardian.  Once a student establishes his/her status as a resident, he/she must seek approval for a change of status for commuter.  Formal requests can be made through the Office of Residence Life.

Housing Agreement

After thoroughly reviewing the housing agreement online, you should accept the terms of the agreement.  Once it has been accepted, the agreement is binding for the 2014-2015 academic year.  Agreements must be completed by June 15, 2014.  You should print/save a copy of the housing agreement, as well as any confirmation e-mails you receive throughout the housing application process, for your reference throughout the year.

Important Note:  If you are under 18 years of age, when you complete the housing agreement, in addition to accepting the agreement online, you must print the provided PDF version of the agreement and have your parent/guardian sign and return it to the Office of Residence Life before June 15, 2014.  Failure to do so will delay your assignment to housing.

Specific Roommate Requests

You may request to live with another JCU student, as long as both parties have already accepted the terms of the housing agreement.  All roommate requests must be mutual in order for you to be placed together, regardless of your personal or living preferences.  Once you have placed a roommate request, an email will be sent to the JCU email account of the potential roommate advising him or her that a roommate request has been offered; he or she will need to accept or cancel the roommate offer.  Roommate requests need to be submitted by June 15, 2014.  Requests received after that date will not be honored.

Special Housing Accommodations

If you need a special housing accommodation, please refer to the Office of Services for Students with Disabilities.
