Request to Live On Campus

The University may grant requests to students who are not required but would like to live on campus. Because University Housing Services must reserve space for students who are required to live on campus, we have a limited number of requests that can be approved. You may learn more about the request to live on campus process on the Housing Request to Live on Campus page.

Campus Cable

Loft Kits

These regulations are applicable to all students insofar as space is available in University residence halls.
