On-Campus Housing Appeal

The deadline for fall semester housing appeals is August 1. The deadline for spring housing appeals is December 1. Appeals are only considered for current Puget Sound students and incoming students who have made their $500 advanced tuition deposit.

The University of Puget Sound is a residential liberal arts college and is committed to an educational mission that supports learning in and out of the classroom. Campus housing is an integral part of this academic experience and enhances student success and learning. 

Appeals to be exempted from the residential requirement or the housing contract must be submitted to Residence Life. Housing are reviewed on the basis of financial hardship. documented personal medical/health related need, or other demonstrated extenuating circumstances.

To be considered for financial hardship, a student must be able to demonstrate that their financial circumstances are so severe as to jeopardize their ability to enroll or continue enrollment at Puget Sound. This type of hardship would typically present itself as an extraordinarily high level of unmet financial need (beyond the Expected Family Contribution), or significantly greater than the average student or parent loan borrowing to cover unmet need.
