First Year Live On Exemption Request
UofL first-year students under 21 will be required to live on campus, unless living at home with a parent or guardian.
Students who can demonstrate that they meet one of the following conditions may receive an exemption from the policy: a) will reside with a custodial parent or guardian for the academic year; b) veteran of the U.S. Armed Services; c) 21 years of age or older; d) married; or e) custodial parent or guardian of a child.
Students with other extenuating circumstances may also petition for an exemption.
You WILL NOT be required to pay the application charge to fill out this request. Student who did pay the application charge but then change their minds WILL NOT receive a refund. Students who pay the application charge, sign their license and have a room assignment will still be held to the cancellation charges posted in the cancellation policy.
You must complete the request fully and provide documentation for it to be reviewed by the exemption committee.
