Only students classified as members of the rising junior and senior cohorts will be eligible for the Off-Campus Selection Process. Students of the rising junior and senior cohort may apply for the Off-Campus Selection each year. Submitting an application or participating in the Off-Campus selection does not guarantee that off campus residency will be granted. Rising juniors and seniors who wish to live off campus must fill out the CSB Off Campus Selection Form which can be found on the Housing Portal. The deadline for this form is October 15.
Release from the residency requirement will be offered based on the best selection number in your group.
If a student meets one or more of the following criteria on the first day of fall semester, she can appeal to be released from the residency requirement. This form is found on the Housing Portal.
The criteria are:
If a student meets of of these criteria, she will automatically be granted off-campus residency status for the academic year or term(s) for which she applied.
Students who do not meet the criteria above may appeal to be released from the residency requirement in any of their four years to live at their permanent home address if located within 20 miles of the CSB campus. These requests for release from the residency requirement will be considered on a case by case basis. Submitting an appeal does not guarantee that off campus residency will be granted.
The deadline for students to sign up for off campus housing is October 15th.
Students have until December 15th to accept or decline the offer to live off campus. If a student cannot find housing after accepting the off campus offer, we can work with them in finding on campus housing. Students will still be able to participate in the on campus housing process. Please note that there is a timeline for on campus housing. If a student notifies us about this situation after the on campus housing process is over, options may be limited.
A student may decline an offer for release however, if they were part of living group, it will only be possible for the living group to include another rising junior or senior as part of the group if they are approved from the off campus wait list.
