Petitioning for Exemption from Required Housing Policy

Because the University of Saint Francis believes in the positive influence and benefits of living on campus, students must follow the housing policy and are encouraged to participate fully in all aspects of residential life programming.

Students whose situation meets one of the criteria below may petition for an exemption from the Required Housing Policy.

Criteria for Exemption Petition

Please note: cost-savings is not a qualifying reason for petitioning

  • Documented medical condition that requires special living accommodations that Residential Life cannot reasonably provide
  • Extenuating personal circumstance that prevents you from living on-campus

The deadline for submitting exemption petitions is two weeks prior to the start of each term. Contact Residential Life at [email protected] to request a petition form.
