Living Off Campus

Off-campus status means a student is not living in college housing or has commuter status.

The number of students given permission to live off campus is determined by the projected number of students living on campus for the 2023-2024 academic year.

Students who are 23 years of age by August 1 of the current academic year are automatically eligible for off-campus housing according to the college's residency requirement. Students who meet the age requirement and choose to live off campus still need to notify REH of their intentions before the housing selection process takes place in the spring semester (typically mid-March).

As a residential campus and due to enrollment projections, St. Norbert Collecge expects that at this time no additional students will be released to live off-campus for the 2023-2024 academic year.

Students interested in applying for off-campus housing in case projections change must complete the following steps during the spring 2023 housing selection process:

  • Complete a Continuing Student Housing Selection Application which will be available during the spring 2023 semester. 
  • Receive a selection date and time after the housing application deadline.
  • Prepare on-campus and off-campus housing options for their housing selection date/time.
If there are off-campus spaces available on their housing selection date/time, students can select off-campus housing. If there are no off-campus spaces available, students will need to select on-campus housing options.

Off-Campus Waitlist
A waiting list for fourth-year students will be generated for off-campus housing in case the initial housing projections change after the housing selection process.

To sign-up for the waiting list, the following conditions must be met for the academic year:

  • Students need to have been assigned to on-campus housing or have confirmed commuter status to apply for the waiting list. If the college decides to release additional students at a later date, students will be released from their on-campus housing assignments to live off campus at that time.
  • An individual or group cannot sign up for the wait list until after their lottery date/time has passed. The wait list will be organized based on the lottery date/times of all applications submitted, not the date/time students sign up on the list.
  • Students can apply as a group (up to 8) or individually. Lottery date/times will be used to determine the order of groups on the waiting list.
  • Only students who are classified as fourth-year students can apply for the waiting list. All fourth-year groups have priority. Year is determined based on fall and spring semesters in college.


FAFSA Housing Status
If you filed a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form, your housing status with Residential Education and Housing must agree with what you indicated on your FAFSA. If it does not, you must update your housing status on your FAFSA. A change in your housing status may result in a change in your financial aid award at a later date.
