Walsh University Graduate Catalog 2012-2013
Walsh University offers its residents the opportunity for a rich experience in group living as it strives to provide an atmosphere conducive to learning. To be eligible for campus residence, students must be full-time and in good academic and judicial standing with the University. Summer housing is also available.
Policies and procedures are designed to give students freedom for growth and self-discipline; at the same time, the policies help to ensure the environment needed for study and respect for other members of the community.
All full-time, traditional-aged students are required to live in University housing. Students apply for housing by completing a housing application, contract and health form; and submitting a $200 housing deposit. Full-time students who are over 23, married or have dependent child(ren) living with them, have lived in a group living environment for eight semesters (excluding summer semesters), live at home with parents or legal guardians within a 50-mile range from Walsh, or have special needs, may request exemption from the on-campus living requirement. All exemptions must be approved in advance by the Housing Review Board. Further information about on-campus living is found in the student handbook.
