Students requesting to live off campus must submit the Residency Requirement Exemption Form. The OUAZ On-Campus Residency Committee considers all requests for an exception to the Residency Requirement based on extenuating circumstances. The committee meets in October, November, December, February, March, June, July, and August. The university reserves the right to consider each request on a case-by-case basis and to require any documentation deemed necessary to verify the information submitted with the request. Individuals requesting an exemption are advised to refrain from purchasing property or signing a lease prior to receiving notification of approval from the committee. Because this is a request for an exception to a requirement, the determination of the committee is final with no further right to an appeal.
Any student attending OUAZ that will or plans to have a vehicle on campus must completed the Vehicle Registration Form. If the vehicle you plan to bring changes, please re-submit the form to OUAZ Campus Safety and Security.
