Off-Campus Living Permission Request Form

Due date(s): 


You can apply for off-campus living if:

  • You will be a third- or fourth-year student on campus in the fall (not studying abroad or taking a leave of absence during the Fall 2014 term).
  • You meet one of the automatic approval requirements (see the Grinnell College Residency Policy and Off-Campus Residency Policy).


Deadline: 12:00 p.m. (noon) Wednesday, March 12.

Off-campus offers will be sent via email Friday, March 14.  If you do not receive an off-campus offer, you will be automatically placed on the off-campus waitlist and notified via email. Offers are sent to students on the waitlist as off-campus spaces become available.  If you miss the application deadline, contact Autumn Wilke to be placed on the off-campus permission request waitlist.

Please note students eligible for automatic permission must complete and submit the required request form by the sign-up due date.  ALL students who receive permission to live off-campus are required to live within 10 miles of the city of Grinnell, whether permission is granted through automatic approval or per Room Draw order.

By submitting this form, I understand and agree to the terms and conditions listed. I am requesting off-campus permission for Fall 2014 and Spring 2015. I am not approved for off-campus living until I receive an offer via email from the Residence Life Department. If, AFTER receiving and accepting an off-campus offer for the Fall 2014 and Spring 2015 term I apply for a Fall ’14 leave of absence, I must reapply for off-campus permission for the semester I plan to return.
