Holy Cross College agrees to provide residence hall accommodations and meals according to the academic year schedule. Students agree to become members of the residence community, and to adhere to and support the rules and regulations as found in the Holy Cross College Student Handbook.

The student also agrees to pay the College the prescribed fees and be subject to the terms and conditions below. By submitting this contract the student understands and accepts the associated costs and financial responsibility.

This housing contract is governed by Indiana Law and any questions about the terms of the contract shall be brought to the attention of the College for clarification before a student accepts its terms.

  1. This housing contract is for the entire academic year. The student shall be entitled occupancy of the residence hall after noon on the opening day announced prior to each semester. A $750 Contract Cancellation Fee will be assessed to the account of any student who moves out of the residence halls prior to the expiration of the contract. Releases from residence life contracts will be granted only in the event of withdrawal from the college, or serious extenuating circumstances beyond the student's control. Requests to be released from this contract must be submitted in writing along with appropriate documentation to the Director of Residence Life no later than December 1. Students withdrawing from residence halls or who are removed due to student conduct will be subject to the College's refund policy as stated in the student handbook.
  2. This is a residence hall and food service contract. The combined agreement is binding when submitted by the student and assigned by a representative of the College. This contract does not guarantee a specific room or type of assignment, but rather a housing accommodation. Every effort will be made to assign the type of accommodation and roommates based on information provided by the student, provided applications have been received in a timely manner. The agreement may not be transferred, sold or re-assigned to another student.
  3. Housing is NOT available during Christmas Vacation as determined by the Residence Life Calendar. All residents are responsible for their own housing during this period. Resident students involved in school sponsored trips/activities may be accommodated. Students who request and are granted permission to stay on campus during Fall, Thanksgiving, Spring, and Easter Breaks will be granted a meal plan for their use over that break that will enable them to dine at a dining hall operated by the College’s food service contractor Notre Dame Campus Dining. Closing hours will be posted prior to each break period. Residents with specific needs, may request as much as a 24 hour extension to remain in the residence hall past the posted closing at the end of each semester. The College reserves the right to deny such requests, and if granted, to charge the student $30 per day of approved extension.
  4. The College reserves the right: (a) to change or cancel the room assignment of a student for reasons of health, conduct detrimental to the living group, failure to attend class on a regular basis, or violations of regulations; (b) to enter any room for the purpose of inspection, authorized search, inventory, or repair; (c) to levy and collect charges (individually or collectively) for damages to or unauthorized use of or alterations of rooms, equipment, and hall properties; (d) to approve all guests in the residence hall. College housing is available to full-time students. Continued housing for students falling below full-time status (12 hours) will be at the discretion of the Director of Residence Life. Students who withdraw from the College or from all of their classes must leave campus housing immediately.
  5. Students in the residence halls will be billed a $350 Damage Deposit and students at University Edge will be billed a $500 Damage Deposit to cover room and common area damages. Damages occurring during the year will be assessed to the student account. Any amount of this deposit not used to repair or replace damaged property will be returned within 90 days of non-returning students check-out of the residence halls, provided the student has not been dismissed from the residence halls due to conduct or grades, or has not voluntarily withdrawn from the residence halls prior to May.
  6. The College shall have no responsibility for: theft, destruction or loss of money, valuables or personal properties belonging to or being in custody of the resident from any cause whatsoever, whether such losses occur from the resident's room, the storage room, or public areas. EACH RESIDENT IS STRONGLY ENCOURAGED TO CARRY HIS/HER OWN PERSONAL PROPERTY INSURANCE.
  7. Holy Cross College reserves the right to notify parents. The college may notify parents of residents who are found to be responsible for violating college policy regarding alcohol, drugs, acts of violence, and residents who have attempted or threatened to cause bodily harm to themselves or others.
  8. The contract is valid when it is accompanied by a $200 Housing Deposit and $200 Enrollment Deposit. Both deposits will be held by the college and applied towards the student's housing/tuition bill. If the student cancels his or her housing contract on or before May 1, 2019 (or December 1, 2019 if moving in at the Spring Semester) the deposit will be refunded. If the cancellation occurs after May 1, 2019 (or December 1, 2019), the deposit is forfeited.
  9. All rooms are equipped with a bed, desk, desk chair, and wardrobe or closet. The College also provides internet service, basic cable, and laundry facilities for residents.

  11. Selection of Rooms. Current College students will select their rooms for the upcoming school year in late April. In July, College staff will begin to hand-match new incoming students with their roommates / room requests, based on the selections made on the Residence Life Contract. Every effort will be made to assign rooms, the type of accommodation and roommates based on information provided by the student, provided applications have been received in a timely manner. However, the College does not guarantee that all requests will be accommodated.
  12. Holy Cross offers housing for upper-classmen in a select building of University Edge, an off-campus apartment complex located 1 mile north of Holy Cross College. These 4 bedroom/4 bathroom apartments are considered living on campus for financial aid packages and are available at the same room & board rate. University Edge residents receive a different meal plan than traditional residential students. In order to live in at University Edge, residents must complete a separate documentation process to qualify for and be accepted into the University Edge Residential Community, which includes a successful completion of a background check.

Housing Qualifications

Blessed Basil Moreau, the founder of the Congregation of Holy Cross, emphasized the importance of educating both the mind and the heart. Here at Holy Cross College, we recognize that such an education does not solely occur in the classroom. Living in our campus residence hall community is seen as a valuable opportunity for personal growth in mind, body, and spirit. This is accomplished through providing an environment where one achieves an examined life through challenge, responsibility, academic inquiry, and service.

In accordance with our mission the college requires that all full-time, first year and sophomore students (fewer than 60 cumulative credit hours at the start of the academic year) live on campus, unless exempted from this requirement. The following first year and sophomore Holy Cross students may request an exemption from this requirement, provided they submit an exemption form no later than July 1 (January 1 if entering Holy Cross in the spring semester):

  1. Students who have earned 60 or more credit hours
  2. Students who have earned 54 or more credit hours and have lived four semesters in on-campus housing
  3. Students who are 21 years of age prior to the first day of classes
  4. Married students
  5. Documented Veterans
  6. Students who are living locally with their parents (or legal guardians)

Students may click HERE to submit their exemption form to request to be released from this on-campus housing requirement. All first year and sophomore students who are not approved for an exemption must apply for housing and will be charged full room and meal expenses. Some students may qualify for additional need-based financial aid if they were originally packaged as an off-campus student and the exemption request is denied.
