The housing office reserves the right to determine all housing assignments (i.e. approve or not approve requests to reside off-campus). Any student who is not allowed to live off-campus is thereby required to reside in college housing in order to be enrolled. The housing code for off-campus [local] commuting is OCL, and the code for waitlisted requests to live off-campus is distinquished with the letter "W" (OCL-W#). These are the codes recorded on the student profile for confirmed housing assignments or pending requests, respectively.

Every student who wishes to reside off-campus should read Requirements for Commuters to understand the responsibilities involved in off-campus commuting. Students who reside off-campus are required to submit the "Off-Campus Living Agreement" and inform the housing office of their residential location and contact phone number.
