Policy for living off campus

Living off campus is something that should be considered well in advance of the fall semester. Please review the current resident requirements policy for more information.

Bringing a vehicle to campus?

All students who drive cars on campus will need red parking permits, if your red permit is still readable you can use the same red permit you obtained last year. Please note that this year all parking violations will result in tickets that will be 1st-warning; 2nd-$40; 3rd-$60; 4th-towed. Towing will be at the driver’s expense and will require payment for towing and all previous tickets prior to the release of the car. Please see the additional vehicle registration information provided by the Department of Building and Grounds.

I.D. cards

All returning students need to stop in the student life office (Janzow Campus Center first floor) to pick up and sign for their new I.D. card. You will need to turn in your old I.D. card at that time. If you no longer have your old I.D. card, you will need to show a picture I.D. when picking up the new card. If you did not come in for a picture before you left last April, your new I.D. was printed with an older picture on file.  If you did want to update the picture now, the cost would be $10.
