Special-Interest Housing

Option 1: Medical Accommodations

Applications were due to the Office of Residential Life and Education 

  • Students with a special request for medical accommodation should fill out a Special Interest Housing Application as well as provide a doctor's note or similar documentation to support his/her request. 
  • All applications are reviewed by a committee of Residential Life, Health Services and the Dean of Students representatives.  A recommendation is made from the committee to the Office of Residential Life and Education for both accommodation approval and placement on campus.

Option 2: Substance Free Housing

Applications were due to the Office of Residential Life and Education

  • Students residing in Substance Free Housing are required to refrain from any and all use of tobacco, alcohol and other drugs at all times.  This requirement speaks to personal use both in and out of the building by residents.
  • Substance Free Housing will be available in designated pods in Holy Cross Hall.  The number of rooms used each year is governed by the need seen in the number of applications for this type of housing.  There are a few double rooms and a limited number of single rooms in each pod.

Option 3: Residential Learning Communities

Applications are due to the Office of Residential Life and Education by Friday, February 28, 2014 by 4 p.m. Applications can be found on our forms page, and in the main RLE office on the first floor of Alumni Hall.

  • The Residential Learning Communities (RLCs) are residential educational opportunities designed to provide students with the ability to share talents and pursue common interests through student-led events and projects.
  • Students are expected to draw on the following areas as they designed their thematic options for housing:  civic engagement, expanded learning, spirituality, leadership development, balanced living, and social justice.
  • Students integrate their RLC interest into their daily living but also serve as a resource and a voice to educate the broader campus community about their theme.
