Am I required to live on campus?
Adrian College is a four year residential college. Students who want an exemption from the 4 year requirement must meet one or more of the following criteria:
- Commute from the home of a parent or adult relative if located within a 45 mile distance from the College (parent or legal guardian must verify this by letter to the Residence Life Office)
- Are married
- Are registered for less than 12 hours now and after add/drop week
- Will be or are 23 years or older
How am I assigned to a residence hall?
First year students are assigned to one of the freshman residence halls after receipt of their enrollment deposit and their completed Adrian College Residence Hall Room and Board Agreement on housing.adrian.edu. Housing priority is based on the date the student's payment is received, their preference of hall and roommate, and the availability of rooms in the halls they have requested. Any specific roommate request must be mutual in order to insure matching.
All students are assigned a lottery number based on total credits earned, GPA and finally a randomly assigned number; this number determines access to available space.
Is the singles policy complicated?
No. There are only a certain number of single rooms in any hall and that number is dependent on the amount of available space in campus housing. Singles are assigned using the Housing Lottery System (mentioned above), classification and location. There is a very limited number of singles available for first year students during their first semester. Single rooms are offered at an additional charge.
If your roommate moves out or does not move in, you are responsible for finding another roommate. Students will be given a grace period of two weeks to contact the Housing Office. After that time period, you will automatically be charged the single room rate. Your Hall Coordinator may be able to assist you in finding a roommate if you experience difficulty locating someone. Any questions should be brought to the attention of the Housing Office.
What if my roommate and I don’t get along?
Discuss this concern with your roommate. If you are unsure about how to approach the discussion, talk with your Resident Assistant or Hall Coordinator. If your initial conversation does not resolve your concerns, consult your Resident Assistant or Hall Coordinator about other strategies. Occasionally, a change in roommates is required. If a solution cannot be found with your RA/HC please contact the Housing Office for further assistance.
Living with someone else can occasionally be difficult but it is one of the most valuable experiences you will have at Adrian College. The Residence Life staff will be happy to share practical negotiation and compromise strategies – information you will be able to use the rest of your life!
What is an RA? HC?
RAs (Resident Assistants) are undergraduate, para-professional students who have been trained to help with your day-to-day concerns and help with community development in the hall. They report directly to the Hall Coordinator.
HCs (Hall Coordinator) are professional staff of the college that serve as the key personnel in charge of the residence hall.
What are the residence life rules and regulations?
The Residence Life Office has established the following policies that apply to residence halls and Greek houses. These policies are in accordance with United Methodist tradition, student development theory, the College Policy on Discrimination and Discriminatory Harassment, and our desire to create a safe, clean, educational atmosphere. Residence Life policies are designed to promote a learning community, the right to privacy, an atmosphere conducive to study, the protection of personal and public property, and a respect for the needs and values of each individual. However, the success of a living/learning community in fulfilling these needs depends on each resident being willing to live by these policies and be responsible for his or her behavior. The following policies do not address every issue. If a situation pertaining to residence life arises that is not addressed within this handbook, the Residence Life Office reserves the right to exercise professional judgment to make a determination.
