For example:¬† A first year student who carried full-time status in the fall and is taking classes full-time in the spring may apply to live in Hambrick Village¬†for the upcoming fall semester.¬† Completion of the spring credits and course load will make him/her eligible to live in¬†Hambrick Village ¬†by the start of the fall semester.
Meal Plan: Students residing in Hambrick Village are required to carry at least a 10 meal plan.
Student Code of Conduct¬†History: Students with more than one Student Code of Conduct violations occurring within the past twelve months ¬†or a history of more than three violations may not be eligible to live in Hambrick Village.¬† Any subsequent Student Code of Conduction violations may result in immediate removal from the Hambrick Village.
Application and Placement: Priority will be given to students who apply in groups of 6.¬† Students who elect to study abroad after application will not be granted ‚Äúsquatter‚Äôs rights‚ÄĚ and the space will become available to other students. The average GPA for each group will be calculated.¬† The groups will then be rank ordered by group GPA and placed accordingly.¬† Previous semester GPAs will be used to determine ranking.
If a student‚Äôs housing assignment is not filled to capacity (and that student is not paying for a private room), Residence Life may assign another student to that space to fill the room to capacity.¬† For example, if a group of only 4 students find themselves assigned to a 6 person townhouse, Residence Life may assign 2 more students to that townhouse even without the consent of the initial 4.¬† As long as a student is eligible for a housing assignment, he/she may live there as long as space permits. ¬†¬†Those students that reside in a housing assignment first do not have the ability to deny occupancy to other eligible students.
