(A) Eligibility.

Unless otherwise excused, all freshman full-time, unmarried, undergraduate students on the uptown campus, who do not live with their parents or guardians, are required to live in university residence halls as long as space is available. Co-op students who have signed housing agreements are required to live in the residence halls during academic semesters; they are not required to do so during work semesters.

Any requests for exceptions to the above policies should be made through the office of housing and food services.

Students may make reservations in university residence halls only after all admission requirements have been met. Students shall sign residence and dining hall agreements or apartment leases which must be returned with a security and damage deposit within the designated time period in order to reserve a space or apartment in a university residence hall or apartment facility. The terms and conditions of the residence hall agreement or the apartment lease govern residence in the university's residence halls and apartments.
