Students in Residence Hall

When will my student get their hall assignment?

For returning students, the Housing Selection and Placement Process takes place in the Spring and it is a four month long process. First year students are assigned to housing during the summer prior to new student week. All new students will receive their housing assignment in early July.

See our Residence Life web pages

What if my student has a problem with his/her roommate?

Residence Life & Housing staff members are responsible for all room changes and work with residents to resolve housing conflicts and problems.

Residence hall policies can be found in the Campus Resource Guide.

What is allowed in rooms?

Room appliances are limited to clocks, radios, closed coil coffee pots, and small refrigerators. Open coil hot plates, or other cooking units are not allowed because of fire regulations and limitations of power supply available. Halogen lamps are not allowed due to the danger of fire. Students who create a sanitation problem as a result of their refrigerator and food in rooms may be required to remove their refrigerator. Small TV's are allowed.

Can they stay over vacation days?

Yes, if a student needs to stay on campus over the winter break, Cal-Founders Hall will remain open. A $25 per night fee is charged if the students permanent address is less than 500 miles from campus.

Can students live off-campus?

Living on campus is an integral part of the Redlands experience. As a result of the University's commitment to the residential life program, all students who are under 23 years of age and who do not live with immediate relatives, or legal guardians (within a reasonable distance from campus), are not married or in a domestic partnership, are required to live on campus and to participate in a University meal plan.

How do students request maintenance/repairs to room?

Your Community Assistant (CA) will be happy to assist you regarding repairs in your room. They will submit a service requisition to Facilities Management on your behalf. Please note that Facilities Management cannot accept repair requests from students; only residence life staff members may submit the request.
