Living on campus is a vital part of the college experience and aids the student’s adjustment to college. Therefore, all first-time, first-year students at Rhodes must live on campus for their first two full academic years. Exceptions can be made for local students who commute from their parent’s home. Transfer students must live in College housing until they have completed two full academic years; previous enrollment at other institutions counts toward fulfilling this requirement. Exchange students must reside in College housing for the duration of their enrollment at Rhodes.
