The University of Idaho requires all full-time, first year students under 21 years of age to live in organized living groups officially recognized by the university (residence halls, fraternities and sororities, women's cooperative) for one academic year.
Students who live on campus have higher GPAs, are more likely to graduate and to be more satisfied with their college experience than students who in live off campus apartments or houses.
Any students who wish to apply for an exemption to live off campus must fill-out the First-Year Residency Requirement Exemption Form with the Dean of Students Office.

Housing contract periods are dependent on when you move in: Academic year, Spring only or Summer session.
