Because of the high value MU places in campus community living, all single undergraduate students under the age of 21 and taking 9 credits or more are required to live in residence hall housing. If you are choosing to commute and are under 21, you must be living at home with your parents and will need them with you when you fill out this form.

We believe that students living in campus housing enjoy a number of benefits. Studies have shown that students living on campus are more satisfied with their college experience, earn higher grades, have more contacts with faculty, and develop richer friendships than commuting students. For this reason, single undergraduate students under the age of 21 who are taking at least 9 credits are required to live in residence hall housing.

By completing this section, you are requesting an exception to that policy even though you are under 21 and not living at home with your parents.



     

I understand that to comply with Multnomah University’s Residency policy, my son/daughter, must live with me at the off campus address stated on this form. I also understand that if my son/daughter moves out of my residence, they would be required to move into campus housing. The University, at any time, may require proof of residency in order to verify the student’s standing related to this waiver.

Every incoming residential student must pay a $250  housing security deposit.
This $250  deposit is kept on file as long as the student is enrolled and lives residentially.
When a student withdraws, moves off campus, or graduates at the end of a semester, that $250  is refunded to the student, minus any charges on their account during their last year of residency (damages, fines, etc.).
If a student withdraws mid semester, they will be charged a $100 processing fee plus any fine they may have on their account due to damages, etc. and will be refunded the remaining amount.

Applications for campus housing are not considered complete until the Housing Deposit is paid.

PRIVATE PROPERTY

Insurance

Multnomah University does not insure a student’s private property. We recommend that students carry renter’s insurance to cover their personal belongings should they incur any harm or theft.

Abandoned Property

Should a student vacate MU housing, he/she is responsible to properly check-out by the date agreed upon and clearly communicated to Housing Staff, which includes the removal of all his/her belongings. If the student fails to remove all of his/her belongings by this date, MU will arrange for the packing and removal of the belongings and may bill the student for packing, labor, and disposal fees.

If a student withdraws from MU during the semester, he/she must move out of campus housing immediately upon withdrawal. Room cost will be refunded based on the academic withdrawal refund schedule. (No refunds on room cost will be issued after week 6 of the semester). The meal plan will be prorated to the week of move-out. They will be charged a $100 processing fee plus any fine they may have on their account due to damages, etc. and will be refunded the remaining amount of their deposit. 
If a student completes fall semester but will not be enrolled for the spring semester, the student must give advance notice and move out by 5:00pm on Saturday following finals week. The housing deposit will be returned to the student, withholding damages, fines, etc. However, if the student does not give advance notice (two weeks before end of semester) and/or moves out over the semester break, the Housing Cancellation fee will be withheld.
If a student moves out mid-semester but remains enrolled at MU, charges will include a $100 processing fee which will come out of their housing deposit, plus 50% of the remainder of the semester’s room cost. The meal plan will be prorated to the week of move-out.
If a student moves out at the end of Fall semester but remains enrolled at MU, breaking the 9-month agreement, they will forfeit their housing deposit. They will be liable to pay 50% of the remainder of the agreement term. An additional $100 processing fee will be charged if notice is not given by the last day of classes prior to winter break. 

 
*Fees may be waived or reduced for students with extenuating circumstances. Examples of such circumstances could be serious personal or family illness/injury, unexpected financial crisis, or academic suspension. Students wishing to appeal can fill out a Housing Appeal Form.
 
Housing Cancellation by the University

This time frame may be shortened or lengthened if the Dean of Students deems necessary and reasonable. Proper move-out procedures should be followed.
