Effective Date of Policy:
August 17, 2022
Students are expected to abide by all the terms outlined in the Housing Agreement that they signed at the start of the year. The University’s acceptance of this agreement, however, does not guarantee an assignment. Students request an assignment within the residence halls and not for any specific designated space. The University will not discriminate in room or hall assignment on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, sexual orientation, age, disability and any other status protected under federal or New York State anti-discrimination law. Daemen University recognizes and appreciates the educational value of diversity and does not consider ethnicity to be acceptable grounds for honoring room change requests.
Students must re-apply for housing each year through the housing lottery selection process. Applying for the housing lottery and selection process does not guarantee a room for the next academic year. Assignments will be based on room availability. Returning residents will be given the opportunity to select rooms for the upcoming academic year in accordance with the procedure published and posted by the Office of Housing and Residence Life. Failure to honor assignment preferences will not void this agreement.
The Housing Agreement is a binding document and cannot be broken without documented hardship and approval from the Director of Housing and Residence Life (or designee).
Purpose of Policy
To create and maintain an equitable environment where students have the optimal opportunity to succeed academically, personally, and professionally and where any and all Daemen University Community members feel safe, valued, and respected.
