Two Year Student Housing Requirement 

Entering first-year, transfer, or readmitted students having fewer than 60 (between 0-59) earned transfer undergraduate college level credits accepted by Shippensburg University by the first day of classes of the semester of enrollment are required to reside in university housing. All second-year students under 60 earned undergraduate college level credits are required to live on campus.

Exceptions to this policy include those first-year or second year students who reside full-time within the home of their parents or legal guardians within 35 driving miles of campus, those who are 21 years of age or older by the first day of classes, and/or those who are legally married.

The annual housing agreement is for the full academic year (two semesters). If a student has not earned 60 undergraduate credits by the beginning of classes for their second fall semester, they are required to enter minimally into a full academic year (two semesters) housing agreement and fulfill all terms thereof to fulfill the two-year housing requirement.
