The payment must be paid in full and cannot be charged to the student account. This pre-payment is non-refundable (except in the unlikely event that campus housing is unavailable) and will be applied to the fall semester housing charge upon occupancy in August. All housing pre-payments should be made online by visiting the Residence Life homepage. Payment must be in the form of a credit or debit card. (http://www.andersonuniversity.edu/reslife )

Anderson University requires all undergraduate students enrolled in the traditional program to live on campus for at least four semesters. After a student has lived on campus four semesters, typically junior year, he or she may choose to live off campus. Students who meet one of the following criteria may elect to live off campus prior to fulfilling the four semester requirement.
· Live locally with a parent, grandparent, or legal guardian.
· 21 years of age prior to the beginning of the semester.
Anderson University requires all transfer students enrolled in the traditional program to live on campus unless they meet one of the following requirements:
· Attended four (4) semesters of college, excluding dual enrollment during high school
Students found to be living off campus that do not meet the proper criteria may be subject to disciplinary action and held financially responsible for the semester housing charge regardless of their current physical residence.
New Students: Housing assignments for new students are processed on a "first come, first serve" basis according to the date on which the student’s enrollment deposit was received.
Returning Students: Assignments for returning students will be chosen during the annual housing sign-up process in April. Returning students who do not participate in the April housing sign-up process will be placed on a waiting list to be assigned as space becomes available.
The Residence Life Office reserves the right to reassign or consolidate residential students at any time if it is found to be in the best interest of the University. The University also reserves the right to assign students to temporary accommodations in the event that occupancy is exceeded.
