We believe your residential experience at Furman is part of your education. For that reason, we have a four-year residency requirement. Students may apply for an exemption under certain conditions. Review the criteria to live off-campus.

If Housing and Residence Life discovers that a student approved for this off-campus exemption has been living at another address, that student will be charged the cost of on-campus housing for the year and may be required to move into campus housing.

Please complete this form by February 19, 2018 to apply for an off-campus exemption for the 2018/2019 academic year.
