Freshmen Residency Policy

Full time students who are under 21 years of age and have completed fewer than 30 college semester hours are required to live on campus for one academic year (2 semesters), or for one semester and two summer terms.

Exceptions are made for married students, single parents, recent war veterans and for those students who live with parents or legal guardians and commute from a distance of no more than 30 miles.

Married freshmen are required to submit a copy of their marriage license. A single parent is required to submit a copy of the child’s birth certificate.

Exemption requests must be submitted in writing to the Office of Housing & Residence Life. The written appeal should include your reason for appeal and must be mailed to Housing & Residence Life, P.O. Box B-3, Delta State University, Cleveland, MS  38733.

Single freshmen who enroll and are found to be living off campus without an authorized exemption will be billed for one semester’s housing fee.
