(1) University-recognized housing includes residence halls, and university-approved fraternities, sororities, and co-op houses.
(2) Housing requirements for single undergraduate students. To the extent that room is presently available, as determined by the university, in an official university-recognized living group, all single undergraduate freshmen under twenty years of age are required to live in organized living groups which are officially recognized by the university (residence halls, fraternities and sororities) for one academic year.
(a) Exemptions. Exemptions will be considered when a student demonstrates to the vice president for student affairs or designee that either:
(i) The student has attended an institution of higher education as a regularly enrolled student for at least two regular semesters or three regular quarters (excluding summer sessions);
(ii) The student is living with immediate family in a family situation (mother and/or father; legal guardian; aunt or uncle; or grandparent(s));
(iii) The student has secured a statement from a physician or psychologist stating that residence in recognized student housing would detrimentally affect the student's physical health or emotional well-being; or
(iv) The student demonstrates that living in recognized University housing would cause undue financial hardship or other extraordinary hardship.
(b) Process. Applications for permission to reside off campus are available from Washington State University. Applications are reviewed and a determination is made whether an exemption will be granted. Persons applying for such exemption will be informed of the decision in writing. Requests for reconsideration of the decision may be submitted to the vice president for student affairs or designee. The vice president or designee will evaluate the appeal and approve or deny the appeal.
