New Housing Policy for SU Freshmen

Posted:

SALISBURY, Md. - The annual move-in day for incoming Salisbury University freshmen was on Thursday.  These SU newcomers will be the first to be subject to a new university housing policy.  Incoming freshman must spend two year living in on-campus housing.

Brett Springer is a SU freshman coming from Prior Lake, Minnesota and said that he has no problem with the new rule.

"I want to be in with all of the campus activities and I am looking to play a sport here.  And, you know, I'm always eating on campus.  I don't want to make my own food," said Springer.

The policy requires freshman starting in the fall semester to spend four semesters in on campus housing.  Exemptions can be made for those living with family in nearby counties.  Also for students who are either 21, married, caring for dependent children, or have completed military service.

Hayden Sawyer is an incoming freshman from Baltimore and said that he wishes he could qualify for an exemption himself.

"I think that students should be allowed to make their own decisions about that. College is all about independence, it is about becoming an adult, moving on with your life.  After this you are getting a job so you might as well be able to make your own decisions about housing," said Sawyer.

There is also an opportunity for students to get out of on campus housing after their first year.  If a student finished the year with a cumulative 3.5 GPA and has completed 30 credits at SU, they can be considered for an off campus exemption.
