Can I just rent a private apartment and not live in college housing?
The College’s decision to move to an online semester is meant to keep students at home. Students are not permitted to rent private apartments unless already given permission to do so by the Residence Life Office. This is not solely due to our four-year residency requirement, but also to help protect the College Hill community. Students who are not already approved to rent privately will be required to reside in college housing when they return for the spring semester. As a reminder, students who are not approved to access campus and do so will face significant disciplinary consequences, including suspension from the College.
Will I keep my original housing assignment for the spring semester?

Information about spring housing assignments will be released before the end of the fall semester.
