To be eligible for family housing, students must demonstrate that the applicant and the individual(s) with whom the applicant is applying to reside together share a qualifying family relationship. Qualifying family relationships under current policy include the following:
- presence of minor or dependent child
- domestic partnership (a long-term relationship between the two adults)
Relationships that do not qualify for family housing status include: parents, grandparents or siblings of applicants, other than a minor sibling for whom the resident is the legal guardian.
