Dear Malone University Student,
Residential living is a critical component of the Malone experience and valued as an integral part of a
student’s holistic education. Even students who feel fully connected to the Malone community often report
feeling isolated from the community experience when living off-campus. Students living on campus perform
better academically, and their satisfaction is increased due to having more access to staff, faculty, and
resources. Therefore, Malone University has a residential requirement for their students, and certain
eligibility requirements must be met in order to live off campus. ____ (Please initial after each paragraph.)
ANY Malone student who wishes to live off campus must submit this Application to the Office of Student
Development, with all required signatures. Applications will be granted on a case-by-case basis. Student
conduct is considered as a part of the application process and could lead to denial of your application. ____
Submitting an application DOES NOT guarantee approval. No student should make off-campus
arrangements without formal approval. Students who make off-campus housing arrangements before
receiving approval could be held financially responsible for both on-campus and off-campus costs. ____
