Residency Requirements
It is the policy of Dakota Wesleyan University that all students live on campus unless one of the following applies to you by the first day of each semester.

  • You are over the age of 21.
  • You are married.
  • You have a dependent child living with you.
  • You will be living with a parent orlegal guardian within 40 miles of the campus.
  • You are enrolled as a part-time student (fewer than 12 credits).
  • Any student receiving more than $11,000 in institutional aid is required to live on campus, regardless of meeting other criteria or the student will risk losing institutional aid.

If a student does not meet the above criteria but wants to live off campus, they are to submit a formal letter of appeal to the director of residence life at least one month before the start of the next semester. This letter should detail your reasons for living off campus, an address where you will be living, how you will remain connected to the university, and how you will maintain good academic standing.
