Responsibilities of Living Off Campus
Whether you live in a private or College-owned apartment, you should be aware of the responsibilities that come with the privilege of living off campus.
College-owned Off-campus Housing (COOC)
Seniors and upper level students accepted into a Monroe Neighborhood House, an Arts House, Hillel House, or the Portlock Black Cultural Center (BCC), will enjoy some new freedoms in college-owned off-campus units while still living in college housing.
Private Off-campus Housing (POC)
Private off-campus housing in the community surrounding Lafayette offers Eligible and Released senior students an array of apartment and home rental opportunities in a variety of price ranges.
Priority Off Campus Process (Priority Process)
The Priority Off-Campus Process is the process for current juniors to become Eligible for selection for a "Release" to pursue Private Off Campus housing for their senior year, and for current juniors to become Eligible to participate in the 2 or 3 person Priority Lotteries for College Owned Off Campus houses and apartments that occur in the spring.
The Monroe Neighborhood houses are application based, programmatically-focused homes on Monroe Street, that provide a substance-free living environment to upper-level students. Groups of 3 rising sophomores, juniors, and/or seniors find a faculty or staff advisor, identify a shared topic of interest, and apply to live in the Monroe Neighborhood.
