Find out what kind of housing you are eligible for as a student at Liberty University.
You must complete Financial Check-In prior to occupancy and agree to the terms and policies outlined in the On-Campus Housing Contract.
Liberty University requires all unmarried students under 21 to live on campus. On-campus residents must be currently enrolled in a residential program and attending classes on campus.
Students who are 25 or older (at any time during the semester) or are married are not permitted to live on campus, with one exception. Students ages 25-30 may be eligible to live in our Independent & Graduate Housing program. All rooms are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.

The university reserves the right at any time to (a) alter, change or cancel a housing assignment; (b) change any room assignment or rate; (c) enter residences during reasonable hours at your request or for routine maintenance, inspections, repairs or housekeeping duties; (d) enter residences at any time for an emergency; (e) control the residences in the event of an emergency; (f) terminate the housing assignment for violation of University policies and regulations, for health or social reasons, or for other reasons deemed sufficient by the university.
The university will not be responsible for damage to or loss of personal belongings which are a result of fire, wind, water, insects, rodents, vandalism or theft. However, when damage or loss is reported, the university will take reasonable steps to attempt to resolve the problem. Students are encouraged to make sure personal belongings are covered by their parent’s homeowner’s policy or a renter’s insurance policy.
Students who are 21 or older, or live with an immediate family member (parent or sibling) who is 21 or older, maybe approved to live off-campus.
Any student who accumulates 18 or more reprimands within a semester might be required to remain on campus even if they meet the age requirement for living off-campus.
Off-campus students are subject to the same rules, regulations, and policies contained in the Liberty Way, except for those that specifically pertain to residence hall living.
To apply to live off-campus, visit the Housing Selection module in the Res Life Portal, opening on Wed., February 5, 2020. For help submitting your application, view our tutorial below.

Off-campus students are responsible for all information contained in the Off-Campus Living Guide. The university defines an off-campus student as one who resides within driving distance of the campus and attends classes weekly during the fall, spring, and/or summer sessions.
You are responsible for your own off-campus housing arrangements. Single co-ed living arrangements are not in keeping with Liberty’s philosophy and purpose. Exceptions to this policy are for immediate family members only (brothers/sisters).
You must update your local address and telephone number on your ASIST account within seven days from the beginning of classes. Any changes in this information must be reported to the university within seven calendar days.
If you move off-campus during the first three weeks of the semester (beginning with the first day of check-in), the housing fee will be charged at a weekly rate. There will be no rebate for the room portion of the housing fee after the first three weeks. The meals portion will be rebated at a flat rate regardless of room location. Contact Student Accounts to find out your total refund.
Approval to live off-campus must be obtained from the Office of Residence Life before signing a lease. Any unmarried student, under the age of 25, who receives 30 or more reprimands while living off-campus may be required to live on campus or with a parent the following semester of attendance.
Any falsification of information on this application or subsequent paperwork may result in automatic denial.
