Spring Off-campus Confirmation


We look forward to having you at the University of Redlands for the spring! This message is confirmation you have been approved to live off-campus and have been assigned that placement for the spring semester. If you decide you want to live on-campus, please reply directly to this email to notify us as soon as possible so that we may place you in a residential housing assignment. If we do not hear from you, we will assume you intend to live off-campus.

As a condition of living off-campus, you must keep the University informed of your local address at all times. Visit your MyRedlands Housing Portal to complete the Off-campus Address form located under Applications and Forms by Sunday, January 8th. The purpose is to maintain an accurate record of students' locations in the event of an emergency or community response. This means falsifying or inaccurately reporting the local address at which a student lives, or living in a circumstance that is different than your exemption, is a violation of the Code of Community Standards. If such a situation is discovered, it can result in the revocation of your off-campus status.

You will continue to be exempt from the residential living requirement for the duration of your undergraduate program, and do not need to petition again, provided you remain in good standing with the University. Please understand, however, you were approved off-campus for a specific exemption. Should the circumstances for your off-campus living change (i.e. if you are approved to live with a parent/guardian within 30 miles of campus and now want to live off-campus with friends), you must communicate that information in advance for your off-campus eligibility to be reviewed.

As an off-campus student, although it is not required at this time, you are highly encouraged to sign-up for a meal plan. We know students living off-campus regularly buy meals or snacks while on-campus. Although there are a variety of options to support your dining experience and convenience, there is a special $100 Dining Dollars meal plan you are eligible to select. Visit the Harvest Table website for more information about meal plans and ratesand your MyRedlands Housing Portal to sign-up by Friday, January 13th. Should you select a meal plan and decide you want to cancel, reply to this email for our office to process the request.

Please keep in mind the University of Redlands is a residential campus and the majority of students do live on-campus. We would love to have you live in one of the communities to integrate into our campus community, get involved in clubs and organizations, and get used to life at the University. If this is an option you would like to pursue at any time, please let us know.

Should you have any questions, please contact Residence Life and Housing at RLH@redlands.edu.

Best wishes,
