The AIC Residency Requirement Is In Effect for the 2024-2025 Academic Year
Many of our students say that living on our campus is one of the best parts of their college experience. We work hard to make each residence hall feel like its own community, and to make sure you feel like family. This is much more than where you sleep. It’s a place to hang out with friends. To finish your term paper, grab a tasty meal or throw on sweats and watch a movie. It’s a place to feel comfortable and safe.
This is home. Living on campus is a great way to get to know the college and other students. That’s why all of our full-time undergrads live on campus during freshman, sophomore, and junior years.
We do allow for some exceptions. If you are a freshman, sophomore, or junior (by credit as of the first day of classes in the fall), you may live off-campus if you meet one of these requirements and complete the Off-Campus Residency Application:
If you need to request a Residency Requirement Waiver, please complete the form and the Waivers and Accommodations Committee will connect with you.
BEFORE YOU APPLY FOR HOUSING:
TO SUBMIT YOUR NEW & TRANSFER STUDENT HOUSING APPLICATION:
Starting on April 22nd, students who have applied for housing will be able to search for, and match with other students as roommates. Students will be able to search for roommates either by name, or by using housing preference information to find the most compatible person to live with.
How To Match With Your Roommates:
Pending SENT Roommate Requests:
After you have sent a roommate request to another student, or other students, you can see if they've accepted your roommate request.
Click the "three dots" in the yellow bar for the following options:
Pending RECEIVED Roommate Requests:If you receive a roommate request from another student, you will need to respond in order to fully match with your roommate or disband from the request. To do so click the three dots next to the student who's requested you to be your roommate:
How Housing Assignments Are Made:
Students are placed in housing on a first-applied, first placed basis. We make all efforts to place students in their preferred residence hall, however if a hall is filled before we are able to place a student, we will place them in the most comparable residence hall either according to building type or location.
Housing Assignment Announcement Timeline:Students who apply for housing will receive their housing assignment, roommate, and meal plan information via AIC Email as follows:
Single Rooms: Due to the anticipated number of students living on campus for the 2024-2025 academic year, single rooms are not readily available to offer new and incoming students. All first-year and incoming transfer students may either match with a roommate in the MyHousing Portal starting on April 22nd, or they will be matched with a roommate, using the information provided on their housing applications to determine the best compatibility. Single rooms may only be made available to first-year students and incoming transfer students after they have received an approved accommodation through the Center for Accessibility Services and Academic Accommodations, and if such a room is available.
Attending college for the first time, or starting on a new college campus can require a lot to keep track of. The following timeline is what you can expect for the New & Transfer Student Housing Application and Placement Process.
All of our residence halls serve as communities for our students to build and thrive in. While they all have that in common with one another, each hall has their unique offerings. AIC offers three types of halls:

Some students may require accommodations in order to ensure their experience is accessible, safe and successful. Accommodations AIC can provide include:
All accommodations requests must be submitted to and approved by the Center for Accessibility Services and Academic Accommodations (CASAA). CASAA addresses all ADA approved accommodations for both inside and outside of the classroom. After an accommodation is approved by CASAA, Residence Life is notified and all available options are presented to the student.
CASAA can be reached by:
The MyHousing Portal is the central action hub for residential students. Here students can:
All residential students agree to the terms in the AIC Housing Agreement. This includes important information such as:
Students and their families are strongly encouraged to read this document prior to applying for Housing.
It can be exciting and confusing on what to bring with you to campus. Check out the "What To Bring" list for the best suggestions on what to bring with you for move in day. For a full list of our prohibited items list, please review page 17 of the AIC Housing Agreement.
Some students who fall under the residency requirement may need an exemption. If you fall under one of the following categories, you may apply for a Residency Requirement Waiver:
All undergraduate students living on campus are required to carry a meal plan. Students may request a waiver or a reduction to their current meal plan. All requests are reviewed by the Office of Residence Life, the Center for Accessibility Services and Academic Accommodations, the Student Accounts Office, and the Financial Aid Office. Waiver or reductions are not guaranteed upon request and may require additional follow-up.
