All full-time Campbellsville University students must live in one of our residence halls unless they meet one of the following provisions:
A resident student is defined as a full-time student between the ages of 17-24 who lives in university campus housing. A commuter student is defined as a student who is a dependent of parent or legal guardian with whom he/she has physical residence, living within a 50-mile radius of Campbellsville University’s main campus.
NOTE: Changing status from resident to commuter and moving off campus may affect and reduce financial aid. Students are encouraged to check with the Office of Financial Aid before making plans to change status and move off-campus. Any student approved to change status and live off-campus is automatically removed from the reservation list for a residence hall room and meal plan. Application forms to change status and live off-campus may be obtained from the Office of Student Services. Failure to complete and process this form could keep the student from completing registration and/or attending classes. In the event that a resident student discovers that she is pregnant, the University wants to provide her with support and resources to ensure the health of both the mother-to-be and the baby.
Therefore, it is imperative that the mother-to-be inform the residence life staff as soon as the pregnancy is determined. The mother-to-be will be provided with the full support of the University’s resources to find suitable off-campus housing that both protects her and the baby and enables her to continue her education as long as possible. It is best that the transition to off-campus living is accomplished by the end of the second trimester of the pregnancy.
Room assignments are made by the residence hall staff with some priority given to previous occupants and in order of receipt of room requests. The contractual statement of the application must be signed and constitutes a binding agreement between the student and the University. Written request for specific rooms and roommates are honored whenever possible. THE UNIVERSITY RESERVES THE RIGHT TO ASSIGN ROOMS ACCORDING TO THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE STUDENT AND THE UNIVERSITY. Requests for private rooms are honored only if space is available. In most cases, the student who has lived in the room for the longest period will have priority in assignment of that room.
