Living Off Campus for 2015-2016

As an upper-class student, you are no longer required to live on campus. If you choose to live off campus, you do not need to notify us or fill out a housing application.

Living off campus will result in a significant change in the need-based grant-in-aid portion of your financial aid package. While your cost-of-attendance budget will reflect the actual cost of living off campus, the need-based grant-in-aid portion of your financial aid package will be determined on the same basis as that of a commuter student. The difference between the off-campus and commuter budgets for a junior or senior who elected to live off campus for the 2014-2015 academic year was $11,820. A student may obtain funding from a parent or private loan for the additional amount. Please contact the Financial Aid Office to check on your financial aid package.

If you will not be living on campus for any reason, you do not have to participate in the room selection process. If you find that you need to move back on campus at a later date, you can submit an application at that time. If you are leaving the university, we only ask that you notify us so that we can update our records.
