Rowan University Mandatory Housing Policy

Undergraduates under age 21 with fewer than 58 credits are required to live in University housing, unless they will be commuting from a parent or guardian’s home within 40 miles of the Rowan campus. Students who plan to commute must file for commuter status by submitting a notarized Statement of Student Residence form.

Students who violate the on-campus residence requirements will be required to move into a residence hall and pay full room rent for the semester in which the violation occurs. Students who refuse to move onto the campus will be suspended from the University.

Students who wish to commute from the residence of their parents or legal guardians must live within a 40-mile radius of the institution and furnish a notarized statement of student residence confirming this.
