Housing Policy

< Back to Campus Housing Policies

Our residential regulations require students under 20 years of age who are not living at home to live in a Providence residence hall. If you have been out of high school for two full years and have lived in a residence hall at Providence for at least one year, you are exempt from our residential requirements. Seminary students and married students are also exempt from these requirements. Students who wish to live in on-campus housing (either in apartments or in one of the residence halls) must be taking at least 9 credit hours of study.
