Residency Requirement


Marshall University Housing and Residence Life consists of the following Residence Halls: Buskirk, Gibson, Haymaker, Wellman, Willis, Twin Towers East, Twin Towers West, Freshman North, Freshman South and Fairfield Landing (graduate housing only).  Off-campus apartment complexes and residential options not specifically listed above are not part of Marshall University and do not meet the University’s Freshman and Sophomore residency requirement.

For students who live less than 50 miles from campus, you may apply for permission to commute. If approved, you are required to live at your permanent address from which you applied to the University with your parent or legal guardian.  It is a violation of University policy and the Student Code of Conduct to live off-campus and say you are commuting or living at home.  Signing a lease for off-campus housing will not excuse the Student from the University housing requirement nor exempt them from the requirement to live at their permanent address if granted commuter status.
