Living Off Campus

Off-campus status is not living in College housing or having 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 2021-2022 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 Residency Requirement. Students who meet the age requirement and chooses to live off-campus still need to notify REH of their intentions before the housing selection process takes place in the spring.

As a residential campus, and with enrollment projections, we expect at this time no additional students will be released to live off-campus for 2021-2022.

Students interested in applying for off-campus in case projections change will complete the following steps during the spring, 2021 housing selection process:

  • Complete a Continuing Student Housing Selection Application which will be available during the spring, 2021 semester. 
  • After applying, students will receive a selection date and time after the housing application deadline.
  • Students should 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.
  • If there are not 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 in case the initial housing projections change after the housing selection process.

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

  • Students need to have either been assigned to on-campus housing or have confirmed commuter status to apply for the waiting list. If for some reason 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 list until after their lottery date/time has passed. The waiting list will be organized based on the lottery date/times of all application 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 (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.
