Housing Requirement & Assignments

Housing Requirement

All full-time, undergraduate, degree-seeking, unmarried students (without children residing with them) are eligible to live in campus housing.

Belmont University requires all full-time, undergraduate students with fewer than 60 credit hours by the start of the fall semester to live in campus housing unless the student is:

  1. 21 years of age or over by the first day of classes in August;
  2. married and/or has children residing with him/her; OR
  3. lives with parents, legal guardians, grandparents, or siblings over the age of 25 while attending Belmont.

Housing is awarded by prioritizing our incoming new freshmen first, followed by transfer students and then current off-campus students looking to move into campus housing. Because of limited availability, housing is not guaranteed for transfers or returning off-campus students.  However, if housing is available, the date of application for housing will be used to set the order within each grouping. 

Belmont reserves the right to modify the enforcement of the housing requirement based on the university’s educational and/or administrative needs and purposes. 

All on-campus residents must agree to and abide by the Housing Occupancy Agreement.

All exemption requests must be approved through the Residence Life Office. For any questions regarding your housing assignment, billing, or housing exemptions, please email
