Commuter Policy

Loyola University New Orleans maintains a strict Sophomore residency requirement. All Loyola students are required to live on campus for two years, or until achieving Junior standing.

Students may appeal for exemption from the residency requirement if the student lives at their permanent address with parent(s) or guardian within a commutable distance of Loyola's campus. All requests for housing exemption must be received by the cancellation deadline of May 15.

Submission of a housing exemption request does not imply nor guarantee that the request will be granted; students should assume that their request has not been granted until written confirmation is received from the Office of Residential Life.
