Incoming Student Housing 2023-24

Residency Requirement

Averett University mandates a three-year on-campus residency for all freshmen, sophomores, and juniors, unless they have received an exemption from the Department of Housing and Residence Life. To live off-campus, students must submit a request through the Off Campus Housing Waiver Form, which must undergo a comprehensive approval process by the Housing and Residence Life office.

The deadlines for submitting the Off Campus Housing Waiver Form are as follows:

  • July 1st for the Fall Semester
  • December 1st for the Spring Semester

The Selection Process

All incoming students have the chance to take part in the housing selection process, which is determined by the date of their admissions deposit and the completion of the online housing application. First-year students are encouraged to choose their preferred accommodation through an online room selection process. However, it’s important to note that specific hall assignments and roommate requests cannot always be guaranteed, as they depend on availability and mutual agreements.

Students who have not selected their housing by August 1st may be automatically assigned to a space and billed for housing starting on August 1st.
