As a four-year residential college, St. Norbert strives to provide students with a variety of options for quality living on campus.

Information for Students Studying Abroad

Students Currently Studying Abroad
Students currently studying abroad can apply for any of the housing options available during the continuing student housing selection process. They can complete an online application for themselves or they can be included in a group application that is submitted by another student/group leader.

Students that go abroad for a semester are released from the residency requirement only for the semester they are abroad. Students will be required to return to on-campus housing unless:

  1. The student was granted off-campus status during a prior academic year and lived off campus during the fall prior to studying abroad.
  2. The student was granted off-campus status for the following academic year during the current continuing student housing process.

Students currently studying abroad should rank order their housing preferences in the online application under “additional comments.”

Students Planning on Study Abroad for Fall 2015 or Spring 2016
Three apartments in Vander Zanden Hall have been reserved for study abroad students during the 2015-16 academic year. These apartments (Vander Zanden 102, 103 and 104) are assigned by semester only. Students can apply in groups of two or four for each semester.

Note: These Vander Zanden apartments are reserved for one semester only. Students must move out at the end of fall semester for students returning to SNC for the spring semester.  

Students can make arrangements with a student studying abroad the opposite semester to take his or her place in college housing. When filling out a housing application, the student(s) staying in SNC housing for fall would sign up for fall semester only and the other student(s) staying in SNC housing for spring would be listed on the same application for the spring semester. 

Please note that if you apply to live off campus and are intending to study abroad in the spring, students that are in on-campus housing for the fall or students returning from abroad that were not granted off-campus housing during the off-campus release process will not be released from the residency requirement to take your place in your off-campus residence.

If you are studying abroad in the fall and do not make arrangements for housing upon your return, you will be contacted in November of your semester abroad to find an on-campus placement for you to move into upon your return.
