Students must choose one of the two housing options.

Resident Housing Agreement 2016-2017

This Thank You note will include a link to RoomSync a Facebook Application we purchased to help students find potential roommates. RoomSync passcodes will be emailed to incoming students periodically at the SU email account as well.

Non-Resident Housing Exemption 2016-2017

The second option is to sign a Non-Resident Housing Exemption. Entering first year and transfer students having fewer than 30 (between 1 -29) undergraduate college level transferable credits are required to live in university housing. Students who plan to commute from the home of their parents or legal guardians within 50 miles of campus, those age 21 years or older, and/or legally married may be exempt from the housing requirement. If a student accepts this agreement they are stating one of the exceptions apply to them. At the bottom of the page a student can agree or not agree and continue as directed.

Students who have confirmed housing (signed a housing agreement and paid a housing deposit) with Shippensburg University can go online and complete housing.
