Residency Requirement Policy

The University is committed to building mature Christians in community on campus; therefore, unmarried freshman, sophomore, and junior undergraduate students under 22 years of age must live in Franciscan University residence halls. Students who are at least 21 with more than 88 credits or who reside with parents or guardians in the Steubenville area are permitted to live off campus. Students who are eligible to move off campus must submit the required form. All students moving off campus must attend a safety seminar prior to moving.
