Assignment Policies

Abandoning Property

Residents who leave without checking out properly with building staff and/or leave personal items behind will be notified that these items will be discarded after a certain date.  The University assumes no responsibility for abandoned property in the residence halls.  Public areas are not intended for storage of personal belongings.  Staff will warn the resident one time to return the personal items to her/his apartment.  If the resident continues to leave items in public areas, the items will be considered abandoned property and removed or disposed of by the staff.

Cancellation

Penalties will apply to all cancellations. Appeal for refunds and/or reductions may be sent to the Appeal Committee, should the student choose to appeal.  Residents who are cancelled are denied access to the facility and are required to pay the cost of changed locks.  Please see the full Cancellation Policy for further information.

Co-Ed Living

University of Louisville offers different levels of co-ed living environments.  The wings or floors in the traditional halls are separated in secured areas by gender.  Suites are co-ed by room (male and females can live next to each other but not in the same suite).  Bettie Johnson Hall and University Tower Apartments are co-ed within the unit. In order to have a co-ed apartment, written consent from all residents in the unit must be on file prior to move in.  If one resident moves out of the unit, the written consent process begins again, so that all residents of the unit are in agreement with the co-ed living environment.  If written consent is not obtained prior to move in, the University will relocate all residents of the unit to single sex living environments, which may not be in the same type of unit or building.

Criminal and Student Conduct Record

We reserve the right to deny, cancel or remove, from on-campus housing and at the cost of the student, individuals who provide false information as part of the application process, individuals with documented history of violent behavior, and/or individuals whose history or behaviors demonstrate an inability to function within a community environment of the residence halls.  We further reserve the right to verify any information provided by applicants that is available on public record.

Enrollment Status

Students residing on campus are expected to maintain a full-time student status of at least twelve (12) undergraduate or nine (9) hours graduate credit.  You are required to notify On-Campus Housing if you assume part-time status.  On-Campus Housing may cancel, at the cost of the student, a student’s residence hall agreement for dropping below full-time status, once we are made aware of the change.

Financial Status

Students residing on campus are expected to maintain good standing with the University, including being in good financial standing.  Students must pay their tuition, fees, housing, and meal plan charges to the University Bursar’s Office.  Students who have not paid all or a portion of the aforementioned to the University will be subject to cancellation, removal, and/or limitation on future assignments from on-campus housing, at the cost of the student.

Finals Week Move-Out

All residents are expected to move out of their residence hall within twenty-four (24) hours of completing their last final for the semester.  Those residents who violate residence hall policies during finals week will face immediate conduct action and may be asked to leave the hall immediately.  The housing license agreement expires twenty-four (24) hours after the completion of the student’s last examination of the spring semester unless granted an extension by the Housing Office.

Right to Assign, Relocate and Remove

The University reserves the right to make assignments of space, to authorize or deny room and roommate changes, to consolidate vacancies, and to require a student to move from one room or on-campus residence hall to another.  A student’s past conduct record as a resident or involvement with law enforcement agencies may cause their application for housing to be denied or canceled, prior to its beginning date and may cause their housing to be relocated or cancelled, at the cost of the student, during the assignment period.  Should you have a specific request, it must be included on the original application.  Students who desire to room together should file applications together.

Single Parenting

Single parents under twenty-one (21) years of age are eligible to live in University Tower Apartments if space is available.  The standard semester single occupant rate will apply and the parent will be required to participate in the apartment meal plan.  All other families are assigned to Med-Dent Apartments on the Health Sciences Campus.
