Important Information for Students Considering Off-Campus Living Next Year

It is hard to believe that you have just moved your student into their residence hall/apartment for this year and we are already discussing housing arrangements for 2014!  However, very early in the fall, some students begin to look for apartments in the local community.  Under the Ithaca College Residency Policy students are required to live in campus housing their freshman, sophomore and junior years unless they apply and are approved by the Office of Residential Life to move off-campus.  Unfortunately, some students sign leases before they are approved to move off-campus by the Office of Residential Life and end up living on-campus while paying for an off-campus lease.  Please DO NOT allow your student to sign a lease until they have received off-campus approval.  You can read the complete Residence Policy and other important policies and prodedures on the Residential Life Website.
