Rowan University Mandatory Housing Policy

In compliance with the Rowan University Board of Trustees resolution, it is the policy of this institution that all unmarried undergraduate full-time students, under the age of 21, who will not be living in the residence of their parents or legal guardian, must reside in the university resident facilities until completion of their second academic year (or four full-time semesters).


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 document confirming this.
