First- and Second-Year Students

If you are currently living on campus, then you are required to continue to live on campus in the following spring semester unless you will withdraw or take a leave of absence (LOA) from the University.

If you currently live on campus and want to request for an exemption from living on campus and do meet the condition(s), we will consider your request as long as the request is submitted by November 15th.

To avoid the $500.00 cancellation fee, please complete the Exemption Form online by November 15th of the fall semester and wait for approval from Housing Operations before proceeding with your plans.

You will also need to complete the Housing Cancellation form online.
