Fall Romers Spring Housing Details

Spring Housing Registration for Fall Romers

(Schedule on the right)

All students currently on the Rome campus must complete some type of housing form for the spring semester regardless of any previous residency status or submission. There will be plenty of time to submit housing forms for the official registration period  outlined on the right side of this page.  Please refresh your memory about the mandatory University of Dallas Residency Requirement.

General Information

Announcements (oral, paper, email, web) regarding Irving housing registration will be made to students on the Rome campus. General questions may be directed to Ben Gibbs on the Rome campus. He is coordinating spring housing registration with Irving. Do NOT call Irving with random questions. This only delays the assignment process.

Following the schedule on the right,  your first step is to apply for Spring 2021 housing in Irving via eRez.  As always, you are advised to have more than one plan in place in case your first choice is not possible for any reason.  This is especially true for the 2020-2021 academic year due to current COVID related room restrictions and possible changes in campus housing due to ongoing COVID developments.

Once the relevant applications are available online, students may submit housing applications at any hour from any location in the world with Internet access – including the University of Dallas Rome campus. 

Qualifications for Official Commuter Status

All University of Dallas undergraduates either DO or DO NOT qualify for official 'commuter' status based primarily upon age, senior classification or living locally with parents within a 50 mile radius of campus.

Returning Romers who DO qualify for official 'commuter' status [age 21 before the first class day of the spring semester; senior standing; married; veteran; or commuter living locally with parents within a 50 mile radius of campus ], must complete the Spring 2021 Commuter Application in eRez marking all appropriate boxes. Please note that a "Verification of Residency Form" will be mailed to the local home address of home commuters at a later date after the start of spring classes for a parent signature and by the given deadline date.   Proof of parent residency at the local home address is also required with the completed verification form.

Failure to submit this verification form by the deadline date will result in the return of standard housing charges to the student's account in the Business Office.

Those who do NOT qualify for official 'commuter' status but wish to live off-campus will generally fall into one of the below categories.  

  • FINANCIAL - Undergraduates with financial concerns about the cost of living on campus must have a current FAFSA on file. The Office of Student Affairs is not responsible for releasing students from the residency requirement due to financial issues. 
  • MEDICAL - Requests based upon medical concerns must be directed to the ADA Director.  Be prepared to outline the general details of any medical issues creating a need that cannot be met by living on campus.  Be prepared to also submit medical documentation which supports the request based upon medical necessity.  See this web page for details and contact information.
  • PERSONAL - "I want to live with my friends across the street" does not automatically qualify anyone for official 'commuter' status. Students who make these types of statements still fall under the mandatory residency requirement without exception and will continue to be billed accordingly for on-campus housing for the remainder of the academic year while enrolled as a full-time undergraduate.

Fall Romers wishing to pursue a formal exemption request to the UD residency requirement based upon financial concerns may do so via an Exemption Request application which will be placed in your eRez account once you send an application request to  The submission deadline is December 1st.  It is in your best interest to review all information given within the form prior to submission.  Be prepared to upload documentation in support of your request at the time of your submission.

Room Assignments

Returning Romers under the residency requirement should generally anticipate assignment to a room in Clark Hall. While placement in Clark Hall is the goal, be aware that placement elsewhere is possible in the event that assignment to Clark is not possible.
