Does Your Student Want to Live Off Campus?

The Office of Residential Life will conduct the fall 2014 off-campus approval process beginning October 28. Only students who will be juniors for the fall 2014 semester -- i.e. those who have lived on campus for three complete semesters by the end of fall 2013 -- will be eligible to apply.  Seniors -- students who have lived on campus for five or more complete semesters by the end of fall 2013 -- do not need to apply for off-campus approval. Seniors may simply elect to live off campus.

In order for juniors (as defined above) to be considered for off-campus status, students need to complete the off-campus application and the off-campus module, "Putting the Pieces Together: Being a Responsible Member of the Ithaca Community." Please see the Off-Campus Housing page for more details.

Students should not sign any leases before they are officially approved to move off campus by the Office of Residential Life. Please consult the Ithaca College residency policy for further details.

Off-campus applications will be available beginning October 28, 2013. In order to be considered for approval, all applications must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Friday, November 1, 2013. The number of applications we expect to approve will be announced by October 29, 2013.

If a student has less than three completed semesters of on-campus living, as of the end of fall 2013, she/he is not eligible to apply. In the event we do not have enough interest from juniors, a notice will go out to rising sophomores with an opportunity to apply.
