RESIDENCE REQUIREMENTS Al l unmarried freshmen, sophomores and juniors under 21 years of age and not living with their parents are expected to live in the residence halls if they are enrolled for 10 units or more. Seniors and postgraduate students may live in residence halls or apartments on a space-available basis. Requests for exceptions are to be directed in writing to the Housing Manager in Student Affairs. All students living in undergraduate residence halls are required to participate in the food se1vice program. All university undergraduate residence halls wi ll be closed over the Chrisunas holiday. International students or other students with extreme circumstances requiring them to remain in residence during this period should contact the Housing Manager in Student Affai rs early in the fa ll semester to make necessary arrangements. HOUSING RESERVATION All accepted applicants who indicate that they want hous­ ing will be sent a housing information card by the Admis­ sions Office along with their notice of acceptance. This card must be filled out and returned to the Admissions office with a $100 housing deposit and the required $100 enrollment deposit. No room can be reserved without this deposit. Applicants who have paid the $100 room reservation deposit and are unable to live in the residence halls may request a refund of this deposit if the Housing Manager has been notified in writing. The Housing Manager must receive this notification prior to July 15 fo r the fall semester or prior to December 15 for the spring semester. Failure to notify the Housing Manager by the designated dates will result in for­ feiture of the deposit. CONTINUING STUDENTS: PROCEDURE FOR RESERVING CAMPUS HOUSING Continuing on-campus studen ts desiring to reserve on­ campus housing for the fa ll must sign up fo r the room of their choice according to the reservation schedule in the spring. Commuter students desiring to live on campus need to contact the Housing Manager. COMMUTER STUDENTS Students who li ve off campus are an important part of our university community. Because it may take more effort for commuter students to feel a part of a university commu­ nity, commuter students are strongly encouraged to interact with those students living in residence halls and to partici­ pate in student life on campus. Involvement in clubs and leadership opportunities is strongly encouraged. For under­ graduate students, the Student Senate and the Student Rela­ tions Board have designated positions which provide repre­ sentational status for commuters. Information and services for commuter students, including commuter hostel housing, are handl ed through the Student Affairs Office and the Department of Auxi liary Services.
