The University of Findlay will allow both juniors and seniors to live off campus beginning in the fall of 2013. Class standing is determined by the number of credit hours successfully completed; a junior has completed 57.01-87 credit hours.
The proposal was approved by the University’s Board of Trustees this month.
Until now, full-time freshmen, sophomores and juniors were required to live on campus, unless they met one of several exemptions.
The Board of Trustees voted to make the change in response to feedback from students, parents and alumni. The trustees, faculty and staff members feel the new policy will better serve students and their families.
The University offers eight traditional residence halls, as well as special interest houses, townhouse apartments and cottages. Approximately 1,300 students live on campus.
