What To Bring, Housing Policies & More

Housing Policies

Student Housing and Residential Engagement (SHaRE) is viewed by the University as an integral part of a student’s complete educational experience. In order to ensure that each residential student lives in a safe place, which is conducive to sleep and study, the University has outlined policies which are specific to housing. The policies address health and safety, positive community atmosphere and/or individual responsibility.

For the full text of these policies, please view our Student Handbook.

Residency Requirement

The Student Housing and Residential Engagement (SHaRE) believes campus residency is an integral part of a student's complete educational experience. The residency requirement is published in the University Bulletin, on the University Housing website and in the Student Handbook. It requires students to live on a college campus for four complete semesters, not including summer terms, or to be exempt from the requirement. Exemptions only apply prior to signing the housing contract. We will not approve mid-year move outs because of the binding Academic Year Housing Contract. Each student wishing to be exempt for any of the following reasons must submit an On-Campus Housing Exemption Request to be considered for the exemption.

Exemptions to this requirement are limited to four categories:

  • Living at home with a relative within 30 miles of campus. The student must submit an On-Campus Housing Exemption Request prior to the start of each academic year that they are choosing to live with a relative until the live-on requirement has been fulfilled (2 years).
  • 21 years of age. Students who are 21 years of age prior to the start of the semester qualify for a housing exemption.
  • Marriage/Children. Students who are married or have children qualify for a housing exemption. A marriage certificate to prove actual marriage is required. A birth certificate is required to prove that the student has a child.
  • Medical conditions. This category is rare, as it only applies to those medical conditions that University housing is unable to accommodate.

Students will be notified of the decision via their Regis email account.

The Academic Year Housing Contract is for a full academic year, so please plan accordingly.

Roommate Support

Roommate Conflicts

Roommate conflicts are natural and healthy. Living in the residence halls at Regis requires learning to live with a roommate. This experience helps you to learn essential skills like communication, compromise, and setting boundaries. However, sometimes residents need additional support to overcome challenging circumstances. We have systems in place to address roommate concerns.

If you are a parent of a resident having roommate concerns, you can help this process by challenging your student to actively work through the issues, instead of avoiding them or looking for easy solutions. Changing roommates is often not the best solution; helping students seek alternative solutions will enhance the learning that can come from this experience. On each floor of the traditional residence halls and in all of the village communities, there are Resident Assistants (RAs) or Peer Ministers (PMs) who have been trained to handle roommate issues. The RAs or the residents may also ask for assistance from the Student Housing and Residential Engagement (SHaRE) Coordinator (RLC) when necessary.


As a parent, your student may struggle at times to get a long in the new environment. As expected, even the best of friends will have frustrating times sharing a living space.  Below are some helpful tips for you to help your student prevent and address common roommate concerns.

1) Get into touch.

Even if the student has chosen his or her roommate, and especially if he or she hasn’t, help get them in contact early and often. The more students communicate BEFORE moving in together, the less like strangers they’ll feel when the day arrives.

  • Important topics to cover during the summer include sleep, study and social habits. If they are not seemingly compatible, what problem-solving and compromises can they brainstorm? Setting the tone with knowing there will be some differences, but that it’s okay to address them, will create good habits in case any other issues arise. 
  • Roommates need to know each other’s expectations and limitations regarding personal belongings such as clothing, electronic equipment, food, and use of items in the room while one or the other is away. Roommates need to be clear on the behavior expected of each other’s guests and how to express concerns to each other.  Most importantly for now, roommates need to figure out who is bringing what for the room. Not only is it fun to brainstorm what the new home will look like, it is also just practical to figure out what will be brought into the new home. Absolutely nobody wants to move heavy electronic equipment or a piece of furniture only to move it back!

2) Take perspective.

Oftentimes, students realize that there are many habits and expectations that they bring into their new living environment that may be different than his/her roommates .  Meeting and living with a student who has a different set of habits and expectations may be difficult, but can often be worked out through communication and/or a conflict resolution. 

3) Encourage Communication.

Communication is certainly a skill that will benefit your student in all arenas of life. Living with a roommate—whether a friend or acquaintance—requires open communication. While technology makes it easy to communicate in another medium, the Department encourages students to resolve issues together in a face-to-face setting. Please encourage your student to seek help from a staff member if needed early on to address any possible issues. The department cannot fix issues in which it is not aware.  


Most roommate conflicts are able to be resolved with a little hard work and compromise. Some conflicts require more support and alternate solutions. Encourage your student to take advantage of the many support mechanisms in place at Regis University to address conflict. The Resident Assistant is an upperclass student who lives on the floor and who has had in depth training on helping students work through conflict. The Student Housing and Residential Engagement (SHaRE) coordinators are also available to help work through conflict and find compromises and solutions. The Student Housing and Residential Engagement (SHaRE) coordinator nor the Resident Assistant will solve the problem, but rather help facilitate the process to resolve the issue. Changing rooms is rarely the first or best option and is often challenging when the building is at full capacity.

The room rates are based upon the absence of such liability. STUDENTS are encouraged and should carry private insurance on their personal property." ~ No. 10

We encourage residents to speak with their parents to determine if their personal property is covered within their homeowner's insurance policy if such loss were to occur while living in our residence halls. If not, students should carry other private renter's insurance for their property.

    Early Arrival & Late Stay

    Student Housing and Residential Engagement (SHaRE) recognizes that students may have circumstances that require them to arrive on campus sooner than Move-In Day and stay late past the academic semester. Student Housing and Residential Engagement (SHaRE) is committed to ensuring that all students have facilities that are well-maintained and prepared for students during the academic year. In an effort to balance the needs of the students and the campus, while also maintaining the time needed to dedicate to maintaining and preparing our facilities and training all of our staff appropriately, we need to have some limitations and fees associated with the early arrival and late stay process.
