Effective Date of Policy:
August 18, 2022
All first-time, full-time students who reside outside of a 30-mile radius from campus are required to live in on-campus housing during their first two (2) years at Daemen University (four consecutive semesters total). If a student is commuting from home and residing with a parent(s) or legal guardian(s), they are exempt from the on-campus residency requirement.
Incoming transfer students who have had prior on-campus housing at another institution will be able to count that time towards this requirement. Incoming transfer students who are over the age of 23 prior to the start of the semester for which they are enrolling will be able to request exemption from this policy.
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.
This policy’s virtual location is in the Residential Living Policies section (Section 4) of the Student Handbook – https://www.daemen.edu/student-life/student-affairs/student-handbook/section-4-residential-living-policies.
