Who Is Required To Live In Campus Housing
All single first and second year students with fewer than 59 credit hours (including transfer credits) are required to live in University housing. The following exceptions apply with verification:
- Students who will be residing with parent(s) within the commuting distance of 50 miles of West Virginia University Institute of Technology.
- Married students
- Students with children
- Students 21 years of age or older
Nationwide, students that live on campus connect better to their college and make higher GPAs than those students that commute from home or live off campus. In addition to your GPA being higher students that choose to live on campus also have better more diverse social circles. Make the most of your time in college, and live in one of our wonderful Residence Halls.
If you qualify and wish to commute, the residence life office needs to know this. Please click on the Housing Contracts link at the left and follow the steps to apply for housing. You will be able to click on a commuter check box before you get to the actual application. That will be all that you need to do. Even as a commuting student, you are welcome to stop by the residence life office and we will help you, if we can.
