OFF-CAMPUS WAIVER FAQS

Below are frequently asked questions and their answers related to the off-campus waiver process to help you plan accordingly for the 2023-24 academic year.

Should I apply for on-campus housing for 2023-24 academic year?

If you are returning to Millersville University for the 2023-24 academic year and not eligible for a 60+ credit waiver, you should apply to secure campus housing.

I will not have 60 earned credits until I finish the spring 2023 semester. Can I still apply for a waiver?

Yes. University Housing & Conference Services (UHSC) takes into consideration the anticipated number of credits that you will earn for the spring 2023 semester. Keep in mind that you can become ineligible if you decide to withdraw from or fail courses that will put you under the 60-credit mark by the end of the spring 2023 semester.

What if my friends I want to live with have 60+ credits and are approved, but I only have 30-59 earned credits?

While you will be able to apply for a waiver on July 5, 2023, there is no guarantee that you will obtain a waiver. Additionally, those with 30-59 earned credits who are granted a waiver may only reside in Student Lodging, Inc. (SLI) communities and not elsewhere off-campus.

Some of my intended roommates and I have received a 60+ credit waiver, but one (or more) have only have 30 – 59 earned credits. What should we do?

Students with only 30 – 59 earned credits are not guaranteed a waiver. You should proceed accordingly assuming that your friend may not be granted a waiver. It is recommended that you make off-campus roommate arrangements with students who do have a 60+ earned credit waiver.

How many 30-59 credit waivers will be granted in July?

This will not be determined until immediately prior to July 10, 2023.

If I don’t have the required credit hours to move off campus, can I take summer classes so I do?

You may do so if this will place you at a level of 60 or more earned credits prior to the start of the fall semester.

What if I already signed a lease somewhere other than Student Lodging, Inc. (SLI)?

You may only sign a lease somewhere other than Student Lodging, Inc. (SLI) if you have acquired a 60+ earned credit waiver.

I received a waiver last year but never used it, can I use it this year?

No. You must apply for a waiver each year.

Can I transfer my waiver to someone else?

No. Waivers are not transferrable to other students.

If 30 – 59 credit waivers are granted in July, how are they chosen?

The waiver application will open the first week in July in MAX. Waivers will be granted in sequential order by the date and time of application until the number of waivers available are exhausted. Waivers granted for those 30 – 59 earned credits will not be based upon any intended apartment roommate arrangements that you may have.

If I do not know if I will be granted a 30 – 59 credit waiver prior to July 10, 2023, do I have to live on campus for the summer?

Students are not required to live on campus during the summer months but may do so.

Is there an appeal process for those students with 30 – 59 credits who were denied a waiver?

No. All decisions are final.


Residence Hall Winter Break 2022 Bulletin

Winter break housing will start at 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 10, 2022. The residence halls will be closed during winter break. Resident students who are continuing in the residence halls to spring 2023 may request break housing for all or portions of the winter break by completing the “Break_Winter_2022-23 Application”. There is no additional cost to stay over the break for housing, but you must apply to be approved. All students that apply to stay are approved and will receive an email confirmation once you have completed the application. The application will close at 4pm on Thursday, December 8, 2022. The residence halls will reopen for the spring semester at 12 noon on Sunday, January 15, 2023.

Students that are graduating or working at the graduation ceremony on Sunday, December 11, 2022, are permitted to stay, but must be checked out of the residence hall before 6pm on Sunday, December 11, 2022. You must email your Residential Area Director (RAD) to receive permission to stay until Sunday, December 11, 2022. The University Housing and Conference Services Office will confirm with the Registrar’s Office students who have requested to stay due to graduating. Once confirmed, you will receive additional check-out instructions from your RAD. You do not need to complete the Break Housing Application.

If you are requesting winter break housing and you have scheduled a room change for the spring semester, you must complete the room change before the start of the break. If the room change cannot be completed prior to leaving for the break, you may be asked to take all personal belongings home. This is to help the housekeeping staff clean and prepare for the spring semester. Please see your Residential Area Director (RAD) to make that arrangement. Students assigned to continue housing in the residence halls for spring 2023 are not required to surrender residence hall keys to the staff prior to leaving for the break nor need to move out all your belongings.

Students not returning or are thinking of not returning to Millersville University for the spring semester must contact their Residential Area Director (RAD) to receive instructions for checking-out of the residence halls. You will need to follow the instructions given to you. Failure to properly check out will result in your being billed accordingly.

Move-In Day Expectations

Once you arrive to campus during your designated day and time, here is what you can expect:

  • Family and / or friends may accompany you for the move-in process for help, but we encourage you to limit the number of individuals needed for support due to traffic congestion and parking availability concerns.
  • We strongly encourage (but do not require) helpers to be fully vaccinated and / or wear a mask when arriving on campus given the number of individuals who will be on campus during the move-in process.
  • The entire move-in process can take between 1-2 hours long during peak periods.
  • Upon your arrival to campus, you will see signs pointing you where to go.
  • Please note that if you have more than one vehicle, only one at a time will be permitted to park next to the building for unloading.
  • When you arrive at your hall, you will be able to unload your belongings. The driver will immediately move the car to the designated parking area while you go to the check-in area to receive your keys.
  • We will have a limited number of faculty, staff, and student volunteers (“Movers & Shakers”) on hand to help. If you would like assistance, the Movers & Shakers will help you load your belongings into large carts for transport to your room as quickly as possible.
  • Due to the high number of new students moving in, at times you might find it easier to move yourself in without help from a volunteer Mover & Shaker.
  • After you unload the vehicle, you will need to move it to an open parking area, which may be on another part of campus. You will be directed to these areas.
  • We encourage you to pack lightly and bring any hard carts that you may have to expedite your move-in process.
  • Before you unpack everything, use a computer to check your e-mail and complete your room condition report. This is how you note any existing damage or worn items in your room so that you are not charged for them at the end of the year. Do not have a computer handy? Do not worry. We will have hard copies available for you to use. Just ask your RA.

 CHECK-OUT PROCEDURES

Prior to leaving for the summer break, all resident students MUST properly check out of their room.  All residents must do the following prior to the actual check-out:

  • Remove all belongings from your area of the room (open desk/dresser drawers).  You may not keep items in your suite and there is no storage available.
  • Dispose of trash by removing it to the dumpster area outside of your residence hall.
  • Clean the room by sweeping the floor and wiping down furniture to remove dust and sticky residue.
  • Clean the bathroom(s). This would include cleaning the toilet, shower, sink, and floor area. This should not be left for the last resident to clean.
  • Return furniture to its original position. See the schematics posted on the bulletin board of your hallway.
  • Un-bunk beds and make sure that the bed frame is at the proper height.

The LAST resident to check-out of a room should also do the following:

  • Turn off the lights.
  • Set the thermostat to 70 degrees.
  • Close and lock the window.
  • Lower the blinds halfway but leave them open.
  • Lock your bedroom and suite door.

EXPRESS CHECK-OUT

  • Complete all the information required on the front of the envelope.
  • Sign your name as indicated.
  • Place your room key inside the envelope and seal it. Shenks/Reighard residents should include your parking pass.
  • If you have lost your key, complete the envelope, and write on the front: “No key enclosed, lost key.”
  • Drop the envelope into the lock box.
