Off Campus Petition and Quad Application

The Off Campus Petition and Quad Application will become available on your MyRedlands Housing Portal on February 1st.

  • The Off Campus Petition is for those who meet one of the four residential requirement exemption criteria and would like to receive off campus approval for the 2024-25 academic year. Students who already have off campus approval do not need to reapply.
  • The Quad Application is for those students who are interested in living in a 4-person occupancy room. Quad rooms are located in Cortner Hall. Placements in these rooms are reviewed in collaboration with Student Financial Services (SFS) due to limited inventory and priority is given to those with financial need.

Housing Selection and Placement Process

As we start to prepare for the Housing Selection and Placement Process for the 2024-25 academic year which will take place later in the spring, we wanted to share some information with you.

  • What is Room Draw? Room Draw is the process in which students select their housing assignments and roommates for next year. Every student is assigned a participation selection time based on their class standing and GPA. It will take place from April 1st- 4th and during the week students will have the opportunity to select their buildings and room spaces for next year, and spaces will be available on a first come first serve basis.

Spring Closing

We wanted to provide some clarification regarding spring closing. Only students enrolled in an on-campus May Term course are able to live on campus during May Term. All students not in a May Term course will move out by Saturday, April 27th at 2 PM, the day after Commencement. To learn more about the Commencement 2024 schedule please click here.
