Off-Campus Living Permission

Posted on February 8th, 2017 by

Gustavus Adolphus College is a residential institution. This means ALL students are required to live on-campus all four years. Depending on enrollment, the college sometimes has more students than beds, allowing an extremely limited number of students to live off-campus. Students MUST receive permission from the Residential Life Office to live off-campus, which is granted based on seniority.  Students should NOT sign a lease until they have been granted permission to live off campus. A signed lease does NOT guarantee off-campus housing, and students will be responsible for paying rent, subletting, or breaking the lease if they are not granted permission to live off-campus. Many students also do not understand all the expenses involved with living off-campus besides rent, including utilities and food. Applications for permission to live off-campus will be available in February, and are due in March.  Answers to many frequently asked questions about off campus housing are available on the Residential Life website.
