Study Abroad Housing Options
(2013-2014 Academic Year)
Housing Policy for student on Approved Off-Campus Study (Study Abroad and the Washington Semester Program)
Students who have been approved for study abroad and require on-campus housing for either the fall 2013 or spring 2014 semester must choose an option and notify Residence Life through the housing application/selection process.
Students that do not select one of the following options prior to or during the housing application/selection process will forfeit their right to study abroad for the next academic year.
Students are only responsible for the housing costs during the semester that they reside in campus housing.
Students who study abroad for the entire academic year (both fall and spring semesters) do not need to participate in the housing selection process.
To be considered a complete group for housing selection:
The Apartment/Suite needs to be at full capacity for at least one semester (the Apartment/Suite cannot be empty during the opposite semester) .
Co-sign with a student who is studying abroad the opposite semester
Voluntarily overcrowd for one semester in Apartments/Suites
Apartments and Suites may voluntarily overcrowd by no more than 1 person beyond the normal occupancy
Example – Applying for a 4 person Apartment/Suite, then voluntarily overcrowd to 5 people for one semester.
Example – Applying for a 6 person Apartment/Suite, then voluntarily overcrowd to 7 people for one semester.
Groups overcrowded by 1 during the fall semester will go through housing selection first
Groups will select from Apartments and Suites configured for overcrowding.
- Please note that groups who choose to voluntarily overcrowd do not get a financial rebate.
Residence Life reserves the right to assign students as needed to any regular open beds if the Apartment or Suite drops below the normal capacity (below 6 or 4) in the non-overcrowded semester.
