As a community, we recognize that living on campus is an important component of a student's first year at Eastern Washington University. New first-year students are required to live in a university residence hall. This policy is designed to increase retention and success for students.

On-campus living provides unique resources and connections that help students create a successful and well-rounded college experience, and research has shown that living in student housing during the first year has numerous academic and social benefits for students. In particular, students who live on campus during their first year typically experience the following benefits:

  • higher graduation rates than students who live off-campus;
  • a higher level of satisfaction with their college experience;
  • a higher level of involvement in clubs and activities on campus; 
  • more frequent interaction with faculty members and peers.

Exceptions to this policy are available. Students who are 21 years of age or older, live with parents, have certain medical conditions, or have other extenuating circumstances which make it difficult to live on campus may qualify for an exception.
