An important part of Ouachita’s education experience is living on campus. Although living on campus is highly encouraged, students may request an exception by completing a Request for Exception to Non-University Housing Policy form. The form itself may be requested from the Student Development Office.
In order to live off campus in non-university housing, one of the following conditions must apply:
They are living with a parent/guardian and commute daily from that residence
They are given special permission by the Off-Campus Housing Exceptions Committee to live off-campus (granted only in unusual circumstances)
They are 23 years old or older
They have completed eight regular semesters of residence hall life.
Requests must be submitted to the Student Development Office by the following dates*:
Spring semester – November 1st
Fall semester – March 1st
*Requests submitted after the dates indicated may not be considered until the following semester.
Providing misinformation for application will result in the loss of off-campus housing privileges and possible disciplinary action up to suspension from the university.
