Housing Exemption Information

Individuals seeking an exemption to the University of Louisiana System’s mandatory on-campus housing requirement must meet any one (1) of the University’s allowable exemptions and perform the prescribed procedures before being considered. Applicants should read and follow all required steps prior to submitting their application to the Office of Auxiliary Enterprises.

Applicants should review, fill out, and submit those forms requested for the allowable exemption. Please complete the application and attach all documentation before selecting "submit". Auxiliary Enterprises' contact information is as follows:

Students who feel that they automatically qualify for a housing exemption are still required to submit the housing exemption application by the appropriate deadline or it will not be considered.  

The Housing Appeals committee meets once per month. Housing exemption appeals will be reviewed by the Housing Appeals Committee at the next available meeting. The Housing Appeals Committee decision is final.
