Frequently Asked Questions

 

 Why can't my parents just handle this housing business?

When you are admitted to the university, the responsibility shifts to you.  It's the law!  Limited directory information is shared.  Other information, like grades or disciplinary actions, cannot be shared with anyone without your permission unless required by law.   Only "directory information" will be shared unless a student has requested that it be withheld.  We do encourage our students to maintain open dialog with their family throughout their studies, and not just when bills are due.  For more information on Privacy Law, please  Click here for more information.

When will I get my housing selection information
?

Once you have been admitted to the university and have paid your $100.00 advanced tuition deposit, then you will receive information about housing options, living-learning, instructions for selecting housing, and a housing agreement.  For students entering in the fall semester, this information begins to be sent in late March.  For those entering in the spring semester or summer, the information is sent upon receipt of the advanced tuition deposit.  The housing agreement must be completed, signed and returned with a $75.00 non-refundable housing deposit in order to have your request processed.  Students also must provide proof of receiving the meningitis vaccine, or sign a waiver stating their reason for not receiving it - to comply with Pennsylvania law.  Residence hall assignments are made on a first-come first-served basis and based on availability within any given facility. Students may log-in to the portal at my.edinboro.edu and check their SCOTS account for housing information.

**Twin extra-long beds are available upon request for traditional halls – please email your request to boroliving@edinboro.edu

What if I don’t have verification of my meningitis vaccine? 

Don’t delay in returning your housing agreement.  Note on the housing agreement that you have received it, or will be receiving the vaccine and bring the documentation with you when you arrive to pick-up your residence hall key.  We may not permit a student to reside on campus without proof of the vaccination or a signature on a waiver.


When will I find out about my housing assignment and roommate
?

For students entering in the fall semester, the information will be shared when you attend New Student Registration Day.  It also will be made available on SCOTS. For students entering in the spring semester, assignments will be emailed to the student's university account.  If there are any questions, email boroliving@edinboro.edu.


I am not sure about how I will adapt to living with a roommate, what are some suggestions to help?
COMMUNICATION is the key to a great roommate relationship.  Suggestions are made when you receive your housing assignment to break the ice and start the conversation.  When you arrive on campus, we suggest that you take full advantage of our roommate agreement.  This will allow you and your roommate(s) to set ground rules for your new home and to show respect for one another. The residence hall staff members are also trained and willing to assit you in getting to know people who live in your residence hall community.  Expand your circle of friends beyond your roommate or suitemates.


How long may I live on campus?
Students may live on-campus as long as they are enrolled at the university.   Undergraduate students who are single and under the age of 25 years old and have not achieved 60 credits are required to live on-campus for two consecutive academic years, excluding the summer sessions, unless they commute from their family home that is within 50 miles of the campus. The student housing agreement is a legally binding document and students are held financially responsible for the terms and conditions of the agreement.


Requests to be released will be considered in extenuating circumstances.  Please refer to this guide.


Are there laundry facilities in the halls?  What is the cost?

You will need quarters!  While the university is exploring an integrated on-line system, the new machines offer great reliability for our residents.   Each residence hall is equipped with coin operated washers and dryers.  The cost per load to wash is currently $1.25 and $.25 to dry for ten minutes.  The average cost is about $2.50 per load.  (Cost is subject to change)



What do the hall staff members do
?

Each hall has staff members who assist residents with academic and personal concerns and provide supervision in the residence halls.  They are also responsible for getting to know their residents and creating dynamic and positive communities.  These are graduate and returning students who are knowledgeable of campus resources and make referrals, who receive training each semester and participate in on-going in-service training throughout the year. Some of the areas of training include:  

• Roles and responsibilities of the Residence hall staff
• Growth and development of college students 
• Adjustment problems in the college years 
• Peer counseling and mentoring
• Safety and Security; Crime and Fire Prevention 
• Addressing crisis situations
• Educational Success Programming: time management, study skills, diversity, health and wellness, community involvement and volunteerism, career planning, stress management, personal finance and budgeting

 
May I break my housing agreement?
Students who have signed a housing agreement may request release.  Students are cautioned against entering into a lease or other housing agreement in addition to the university agreement. 

The university is committed to student success.   To that end, undergraduate students who are single and under the age of 25 years old and have not achieved 60 credits are required to live on-campus for two consecutive academic years, excluding the summer sessions, unless they commute from their family home that is within 50 miles of the campus.  The student housing agreement is a legally binding agreement and students are held financially responsible for the terms of the agreement, once the agreement is submitted to the university.  Consideration for release from the housing agreement may be submitted with complete documentation to the Residence Life and Housing office. 
 


Should problems arise concerning roommates or other concerns, students are encouraged to work with the hall staff to achieve the best possible living situation.  Beyond the Resident Assistant, we employ Residence Hall Coordinators and other professional staff who will assist you with any concerns related to your housing assignment. 

Request to be released forms are available at the Residence Life and Housing Office in Lawrence Towers.  Students should provide complete documentation with the request form.  Please refer to this guide.
