Liberty University requires all unmarried students under the age of 21 to live on campus or with an immediate family member (parent or sibling) who is 21 years of age or older. Students who are over 21 years of age may be approved to live off-campus. Note: Any student who accumulates 18 or more reprimands within a semester may 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. Additionally, 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.
Off-campus students are responsible for their own off-campus housing arrangements. Single coed living arrangements are not in keeping with Liberty’s philosophy and purpose. Exceptions to this policy are for immediate family members only (brothers/sisters).
It is each student’s responsibility to have his/her local address and telephone number updated on their ASIST account within seven (7) days from the beginning of classes. Any changes in information must be reported to the University within seven (7) calendar days.
If a student moves off campus during the first three weeks of the semester (beginning with the first day of check-in), the housing fee will be charged accordingly, at a weekly rate. There will be no rebate for the room portion of the housing fee after the first three weeks; however, the meals portion will be rebated at a flat rate regardless of room location. Students should contact Student Accounts to find out their 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.
