The College of Idaho has a six-semester residency requirement. All students under 21 on September 1st who have not already lived on campus for six semesters (3 years), are required to live on campus unless that student has a spouse and/or dependent children. Exceptions are made for extraordinary circumstances through the Non-Academic Petition process (contact the Office of Residence Life for more information).
To apply for on-campus housing at The College of Idaho, a new student must submit the Community Living Agreement and a Matriculation Deposit to the College. This is done as a part of the Admission process. Priority is based on the date the Matriculation Deposit is received.
Current students apply for housing during the Room Draw process and by contacting the Office of Residence Life. By being assigned to campus housing, residents agree to an academic year commitment and to College policies governing housing.
This agreement is a full academic year commitment. Any exceptions must be petitioned through the Non-Academic Petition process (contact Office of Residence Life) and be approved prior to occupancy.
This agreement is for space in College housing. Typically, students do not move between residence halls, the Village apartments, or rental houses, but the College reserves the right to relocate students if necessary.
Students are not allowed to sublet any college residential space, nor are agreements transferable between students. Rental house residents also sign an agreement for space in a rental house.
This information creates an agreement to use on-campus housing. The non-enforcement by the College of any of these regulations or procedures shall not constitute a waiver or breach of the agreement.
Housing in the residence halls does not include the December Holiday Break. The residence halls are closed during this time for maintenance projects and to ensure maximum safety and security. Limited housing is available during this break to international students and athletic team members required to remain for practice and competition. Students who wish to stay over the break must follow procedures to do so issued in the fall by the Office of Residence Life.
Students are responsible for knowing and complying with all regulations published in the Student Handbook and The College of Idaho Catalog. The College has the right to amend this agreement and may occasionally issue additional regulations concerning housing.
It is important to remember that by living in the residence halls, in the Village apartments, or in the rental houses, the student is committed to the terms and conditions of the agreement. The College has the right to take disciplinary action against a resident and/or terminate this agreement for failure by any person occupying the residential unit to comply with the terms and conditions of this agreement.
The College is an equal opportunity institution and offers living accommodations without regard to race, age, color, sexual orientation, national origin, or disability as provided for in Title IV and Title IX and sections 503 and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the American and Disabilities Act of 1990.
