As a reminder, ALL NEW students who desire to live on campus will be asked for a $100 pre-payment of their housing fees to complete the housing process. This $100 reserves your bed in University Housing and is applied directly to your housing costs.
All housing paperwork must be completed no less than 10 days prior to the beginning of a term. Some forms may require additional time for processing. Failure to meet deadlines, may result in charges and penalities.

Certain Ottawa University scholarships contain an eligibility condition that specifies that recipients of those scholarships must reside in University-sponsored housing during the enrollment periods for which the scholarships are awarded. The following housing policy pertains to all other full-time students, effective July 1, 2019.
A student will be required to reside in University-sponsored housing, provided it is available, unless such student meets one or more of the following criteria:
- is married;
- has legal custody of a child who resides with them at least 50% of the time;
- has attained a legal age of 21 prior to August 1 for the fall semester or January 1 for the spring semester;
- has lived in Ottawa University-sponsored housing for 6 or more semesters (fall or spring);
- resides with his/her parent(s)/legal guardian(s) in one of the following Arizona towns/cities: Avondale, Buckeye, Deer Valley, El Mirage, Glendale, Goodyear, Litchfield Park, Paradise Valley, Peoria, Sun City West, Surprise, Tolleson, Waddell, Wittman, and Youngtown.
Students who for personal reasons desire to reside with a parent/legal guardian may apply for an exception. Such exceptions will be considered for reasons of financial strain, a need to aide in the care of a family member in the house, or other circumstance deemed appropriate by the Dean of Student Affairs in his/her sole discretion. Any request to live off campus with a parent/legal guardian must be submitted as a formal appeal letter to the Office of Student Affairs for consideration by the appropriate deadline. All documentation supporting the reason for the appeal must be submitted with the appeal letter.
