Considering Housing

We are glad that you are considering on-campus housing for your student. Living on-campus provides many benefits for a student’s academic and social well-being. We have provided a few links below that we believe may be of interest.  We hope this will help answer some of your questions about housing options for your student. If you need further assistance, feel free to contact us at (330) 672-7000 or 1-800-706-8941.

Note: Kent State University requires that all students enrolled for 9 or more credit hours reside in a university residence hall and participate in a board plan. The requirement excludes summer sessions and is applicable until attainment of junior academic standing (60 semester credit hours/90 quarter credit hours) or the receipt of an exemption from University Housing.  Students who meet certain criteria and file a Commuter Exemption Form (PDF) will receive a written response from University Housing as to the status of your request.
