The terms “residence” or “campus housing” used herein refer to the apartment, residence hall room, or house owned or leased by the
University, or Greek house in which student resides, as applicable. “Housing agreement” means the Apartment Lease Agreement or
Residence Hall Agreement executed by the student, as applicable.
Living in campus housing is a unique community living option; policies that provide for the health, safety, and security needs of all
students are a necessity. These policies foster a cooperative living environment and prohibit certain behaviors that may adversely
affect the campus housing community. All campus housing is considered private property, reserved for the exclusive use of resident
students, invited guests and authorized University personnel. Students are responsible for upholding all University and campus
housing policies and for informing their invited guests of said policies. Students are responsible for the behavior of their guest(s).
Violations of any of the policies, procedures, or requirements in the housing agreement, those promulgated by Residence Life, or
those outlined in the Elon University Student Handbook, which are incorporated herein by reference, will be considered a violation of
the housing agreement and ground(s) for termination of the housing agreement and removal from campus housing. Violations are
referred to appropriate University personnel for judicial action.
Eligibility Requirements: To be eligible to reside in campus housing, the student must be enrolled in full-time academic course work
at the start of the semester (minimum of 12 semester hours). Exceptions must be approved by the Associate Director of Residence Life
Operations and Information Management. If the student’s enrollment status changes to part-time status, the University has the right,
but not the obligation, to terminate the housing agreement. All first and second year students are required to live on campus. The
