Students are required to live on campus and purchase the Residential Meal Plan (at minimum) if they fall into any of the following categories:
If students fall into any of the above categories (as of the first day of class for the academic year), they are required to live on campus for the full academic year. If student status (class year, age etc.) changes during the academic year, they will not be released from this housing requirement until the following academic year. The summer quarter is not included in the residential requirement.
Since your residence hall room will be home during the academic year, you will want to have all the comforts and supplies you need day-to-day. Listed below are items important to have when you arrive, as well as others not allowed. Remember that your residence hall room is probably not as big as your bedroom at home. So remember, don't bring all of your belongings—they won't all fit. For more information on Move-In and Room information see our Frequently Asked Questions.

Students who are planning to find a job on- or off-campus should consider bringing original, unexpired (no photocopies) documentation to complete an I-9 that verifies identity and employment authorization. For domestic students, commonly used documents are US Passport OR ID/license AND birth certificate or Social Security card. International students will need their Passport, I-94, and I-20. More information on acceptable documents can be found on the government I-9 website. Go here for more information regarding on-campus student employment.
