Emory & Henry requires that all students live in College-owned residences except for those students who reside with their parents, guardians, or spouses; those 23 years of age or older; part-time students with eight or fewer semester hours; or those students who have special medical or personal considerations which cannot be accommodated on campus (specific documentation will be required).
Due to capacity constraints, there may be times when the College will permit students to move off campus. When this permission is given, the criteria for students selected will be based on seniority status and will be regulated by the Office of Student Life. The authorization to live off campus will be granted for that particular academic year only.
A waiver must be submitted to the Office of Student Life requesting approval for every student living off campus. If this Residence Requirement Waiver is not completed by the established deadline, the student will be billed for room and board.
Part-time students, special students and fifth-year seniors who wish to reside in College-owned residence halls may apply and be granted approval to live in College facilities if space is available.
The Residence Requirement Waiver for Commuters is available here or may be picked up from the Student Life Office in Martin-Brock Student Center. Students wishing to appeal the residency requirement for special circumstances must fill out additional paperwork available in Student Life.
Every residential student will be required to participate in the College meal plan. Approval for medical and/or financial exception (with appropriate documentation) will be reviewed by the Office of the Dean of Students.
