Substance-Free Community Offered

Students wanting to live in a substance-free community are invited to apply for a space in Newman Hall. Rooms on the third floor of Newman Hall are designated for the 2016-2017 academic year to be part of a substance-free housing option.

All students requesting this option must have a valid housing/dining contract for the 2016-2017 academic year as a returning student, be a incoming transfer student with a housing offer, or be an incoming first-year student (freshman). Students accepted into a living-learning community or who are members of the Corps of Cadets are not eligible for this housing option.

Residents of this floor and their guests are not allowed to use or possess alcoholic beverages (regardless of their age) in their rooms.  Residents and their guests also agree to refrain from the possession or use of illegal substances and/or tobacco in their rooms. Electronic cigarettes, vaping, or similar devices are also not allowed. Smoking is not allowed in any residence halls regardless of the substance-free option. Finally, students and their guests in the substance-free community may not be under the influence of alcohol (regardless of age) or other drugs while in the residence hall.

Students not following this expectation may receive student conduct referrals or may be reassigned to other available spaces within the residence hall system.

If you would like to be assigned to this community, please complete the application below by Wednesday, 15 June 2016 (incoming students) or by Monday, 4 April 2016 (returning students). Submitting this application will override your existing preferences on the housing contract in regard to building types. If students wish to have a specific room, both individuals should apply below.
