Continue as Off-Campus Commuter
Request period is limited. To continue as a commuter for the 2015-2016 academic year, the request form below is available to you during the first two months of the Spring semester
Submission DEADLINE : February 28 , 2015
If you are an off-campus local (OCL) commuter during the Spring semester of the academic year, you have an opportunity to reserve off-campus again for the next semester/year (Fall and/or Spring semester) during the request period without needing to request OCL during housing sign-ups. However,the deadline for submitting the online request to Continue off-campus commuting is February 28. The Housing Director will notify you by email to confirm if you have successfully reserved off-campus again. If you do not receive an email notification to confirm, you should contact Housing before the deadline.
What to do if you do if you miss the February 28 deadline: In order to get approval to live off-campus again, you need to submit the online Request for Off-Campus which all students are able to submit. There is a March deadline for the Request for Off-Campus, and this form will be announced by Housing sometime in January. If the off-campus limit is reached for either or both semesters, which usually occurs, a waiting list will be started by the Housing Director for each semester.
Note to current commuters: Approval to live off-campus is NOT granted for more than one academic year. Even though you already reside off-campus, this fact does not ipso facto allow you to continue living off-campus. In order for off-campus to be your housing assignment again, it must be requested (and approved by Housing) for each semester of enrollment. Do not miss the deadline or fail to request both semesters (i.e. if you intend to reside off-campus for the entire subsequent academic year).
Note to those who do not reside off-campus locally and commute (during the Spring semester): The opportunity to request to continue as a commuter is NOT available to you. You need to request off-campus using the regular online form (once it is announced in January). See the deadline and other information under "Housing Sign-Ups for Next Year" and Timeline and Deadlines.
