Off-Campus Criteria

CMU in Fayette is a residential campus and all students are expected to reside there unless they meet
one or more of the following criteria. The student may live off campus if he/she is:

  • 21 years of age before the start of the semester,
  • enrolled in their fifth year of full-time undergraduate study,
  • living with parents within 30 miles of the Fayette campus,
  • married, or, is the custodial parent of a minor child who is living with them

All international students must live on campus for their first academic year if they are arriving directly from another country.

Anyone who does not live on campus, including those living with their parents, must complete an
Off-Campus Housing Form available from the office of student development. Any student receiving CMU financial assistance is required to live in campus housing unless they are approved through this process.

Students found to be in violation of this policy will forfeit their CMU aid.
