Are there certain academic requirements that must be met in order to be eligible to live in the residence halls?
Yes. You must be enrolled in 12 credit hours per semester at Regis University for undergraduates. First-year students are eligible to live in DeSmet Hall or O'Connell Hall. Sophomores, juniors, and seniors are eligible to live in West Hall, Residence Village, or Ignatian Village.
How can I get exempt from the Residency Requirement?
What if I don't get selected to live in a Living-Learning Community?
To uphold the integrity of the LLC program at Regis University, a limited number of residents may be approved to live in a particular LLC. However, if space is not available after the the LLC selection process you will still have time to find a roommate and be eligible for the housing sign-up process.
Can I sign-up to live in a Living-Learning Community after the housing sign-up process?
Yes if space is available in the LLC. However, the LLC selection process runs simultaneously alongside the housing sign-up process.
I missed my sign-up time slot, what do I do?
You may access the portal during your assigned time slot or during subsequent time slots. The process closes at a predetermined time, so you will need to select and confirm your assignment by the closing time of the specific step. If you fail to confirm by the closing time, your assignment may be voided and the vacancy filled.
I don't meet the qualifications to live off-campus, will anyone notice or care if I just move to off-campus housing?
Living on campus is viewed as an integral part of your education, hence the Regis University Residency Requirement. Students not meeting this requirement will be required to move to on-campus housing and will find their housing options very limited. Students may obtain and submit and Exemption Request Form from the Office of Residence Life and Housing. Please be aware that exemptions are granted only for specific reasons and not granted in many cases. If you haven't received an exemption, you should sign-up for housing. If you don't your housing options will be very limited.
Can I live on campus for only one semester?
No. The housing contract is for the full academic year. After signing the housing contract you are obligated to live on campus and pay for the full academic year. However there are five ways that, when the housing cancellation process is followed, Residence Life and Housing will release a student from their housing contract:
- for documented medical accommodations that Regis University cannot accommodate
- documented financial duress
- participation in a Regis University semester long study abroad program
- transferring to another institution of higher education
Please note that in order to apply for housing cancellation you must complete and submit the Housing Cancellation Form
within the required timelines located on the Refund Charts.
What if I do not want to submit an online payment?
Then you must go to the Cashier's Office 303.458.4129 located in Main Hall 1st floor and make the payment. Once you do so you need to go to the Office of Residence Life, Housing and Event Services with the original receipt from the Cashier's Office indicating your payment. At this time we can go into the system and allow you to continue to sign-up for housing.
What if I can't locate my preferred roommate when I search in the online application?
Your preferred roommate must submit an online application for the same term as you, otherwise a match will not be found. Please check with your preferred roommate to ensure that they have submitted an application and requested the same term.
Can I request a single room?
Single rooms are available upon request; however they are limited in availability.
What happens if my roommate withdraws from Housing?
When a vacancy occurs in a room, the remaining student(s) have the opportunity to identify a student to fill that vacancy within a time specified by Residence Life. Should the student(s) not be successful in identifying a student, the Residence Life staff will fill the vacancy through consolidation or, when available, offer the student a buy-out for a single room. The Residence Life staff may also consolidate vacancies and relocate students to other rooms in that specific residence hall.
