Residence Hall Activities
All hall activities will be posted in residence hall lobbies and halls. Periodically, resident assistants will hold hall
meetings for residents on their halls. The residence hall director will call mandatory residence hall meetings at
specific times during the semester. These meetings will inform residents of activities and campus information and
are mandatory for all students.
Absences may be excused only by the director, and students must inform their director at least 24 hours before
the scheduled meeting. Unexcused absences will result in community service for the resident.
Three off-campus housing options are available for both undergraduate and graduate students who are enrolled in
at least nine hours during the long semesters. All applications will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis.
Every effort will be made to fill requests with priority given to those applicants with families. However, due to the
limited number of available units, some substitutions may be necessary.
Off-campus Housing Assignment Policy
All houses are assigned on a first-come, first served basis with the following exceptions:
Families (which today includes more single parents) take priority over single students. This means
if a student with a family put in a request today, that student will “bump” single students who
have been in line for a year.
It is an objective of Off-Campus Housing to have approximately 20% graduate students living in
All students must meet the requirements to live off campus, or have the approval of Student
Development to do so. All students must also have a current accounts receivable, or be cleared
by the Business Office to live in a housing unit.
Administrative Council Exception – there may be times that faculty or staff or a special student
case will be placed ahead of others.
Students who are in need of handicapped accessible apartment.
Wolf Apartments: ministry students take priority over others.
If we have current residents with “roommate” issues, we may move students to an open unit (or
to the residence hall if there is no unit available.)
All housing applications stay active for one calendar year, unless the student specifically requests that the
application stay active for a longer period of time.
Applications must be completely filled-out. For example, if you requested a four-bedroom apartment,
there must be four names on the application. It is the applicant’s responsibility to notify other people on
the application of any changes that are made to the application once it is turned in.
University Place Apartments
The university operates a 32-unit apartment complex close to campus. These apartments are completely furnished
and available in a one, two, or four bedroom arrangement. All units have central heat and air, as well as ceiling
fans. Residents must pay for their own electricity. Water, gas, cable, local phone, and Ethernet access are
