Students who wish to seek an off-campus exception should do so in writing by March 2, 2016 to be considered prior to housing selection. To apply, students need to pick up a Residency Exemption Request from the student life office. Please note that most requests that fall outside of university policy are not considered. To apply for a financial hardship exemption, fill out the petition for financial hardship exemption by December 11 for Spring 2016 or by May 31 for Fall 2016. Requests presented after this time will not be considered. 

Students applying for exemption should still pay a housing deposit and go through housing selection. If their exemption request is accepted their housing deposit will be refunded.
