Housing Exception Request Form

Housing Exception Request Form

The residency expectation supports Christian Brothers University’s educational philosophy that emphasizes the value of community and close student interactions. In addition, the requirement is in keeping with the University’s policy of maintaining reasonable costs by maximizing occupancy of residential spaces.

All full-time undergraduate students are expected to reside in university housing for their freshman and sophomore years. For transfer students, residency is similarly expected. Allowable exceptions include: married or registered domestic partnership; single parent; student is older than 25 at time of acceptance; extreme medical condition; providing a caregiving function; and those students living at home within 30 miles of the university. If within 30 miles, upperclass student will be asked to provide a letter of verification with signatures from a parent or guardian.

Students failing to submit an exception request form prior to the deadline will be assessed the mandatory room and board fees. A request for exception from the on-campus requirement does not guarantee nor imply it will be granted. All requests will be reviewed by the appropriate campus committee and their decision will be communicated within ten (10) business days of the submission.
