First-Year Student Live-On-Campus Residency Requirement

Illinois Tech is committed to providing all students with a comprehensive educational experience. There are numerous educational and social benefits for first-year students living in the residence halls.

Beginning Fall 2017, first-year undergraduate students enrolled full-time, as defined in the Illinois Institute of Technology Undergraduate Bulletin, will be required to live in campus residence halls for two academic years. An academic year is comprised of both the fall and spring semester of any given term.

Exemption from the First Year Live-On Requirement

Those individuals who live full time with their parent or guardian, within 50 miles of the Illinois Tech Main Campus, during their first term of enrollment are exempt from the requirement to live in the residence halls. Students may be exempt from the requirement to live in the residence halls while they reside in the principal residence of a parent or legal guardian. Requests for exemption to the First Year Live-On Requirement on the basis of compelling individual circumstances will also be considered. Please complete the form below to apply for exemption.
