Apply for campus housing.

You are required to live in university residence hall facilities if:

  • You are a single, full-time undergraduate student under the age of 21
  • You have fewer than 60 hours
  • If you live off campus and you fail to meet either of these requirements, you will be assessed the lowest residence hall fee.
  • Exception is made if you live with your parents in the parent's principal residence within 50 miles of the Richmond campus as determined by an official state map. An additional Commuter Information form must be completed to request the exception. (Visit the Housing website for additional information.)
