Residency Requirement

Salisbury University has a two-year residency requirement for all freshmen through their sophomore year. Students beginning in the fall semester are required to live in campus housing for four semesters and students beginning in the spring semester live on campus for three semesters. Students can request an exemption through the Office of Housing and Residence Life based on the following criteria:

  • Geographic – Students living at home with their parents, legal guardian, or immediate family over the age of 21 in Wicomico, Worcester, Somerset, Dorchester, or Sussex (DE) counties
  • Age – Students who at the time of enrollment are at least 21 years of age
  • Status – Students who are married or caring for dependent children, or students who have completed military service.

At the end of the first year of on-campus residence, students can also be considered for an off-campus exemption if they have achieved a 3.5 cumulative GPA, non negative student conduct history and will have completed at least 30 credits of study at SU.

Note: The Office of Housing and Residence Life reserves the right to confirm with other University offices any claim presented as the basis for an exemption.  This includes, but is not limited to financial hardship, acquired credit hours, student conduct record, residency, etc. 

The deadline for new, incoming freshmen students to submit an exemption for fall 2016 is June 6, 2016.  The deadline for currently enrolled students is May 15, 2016).
