Residence Hall Application and Contract
An individual must be admitted to the College before an application for housing can be accepted. The housing application must be renewed each year. During the specified period for renewal of housing applications, the student is expected to review the "Housing Application and Agreement" and, if he/she desires housing and concurs with the terms and conditions, to review and sign the housing application. Signing the agreement constitutes an agreement by the student to comply with the terms and conditions accompanying the housing assignment. For more, see Community Life Student Handbook under Policies and Procedures.
