All Piedmont University students must live in the residence halls except the following:
- Married, divorced, or widowed students or students with dependents. Because of the limited housing space, we do not allow for couples to live on campus.
- Students living at the primary residence of their parents or legal guardian in Habersham, Banks, Hall, Rabun, Stephens, Towns, or White counties (with the exception of student athletes).
- Students who are 21 years of age on the first day of registration for the fall term (with the exception of athletes).
All Piedmont University student athletes are required to live on campus.
The following rules apply to all Piedmont University students applying to live in residence halls:
- Undergraduate Students who are enrolled full time have priority to reside on-campus.
- Students must be 17 years of age by Welcome Week move-in day. Additionally, students who are under the age of 18 require parental consent to reside on campus and must submit a request to reside on campus. These requests must be submitted to the Director of Residential Living for approval and will be reviewed by the Housing Committee on a case-by-case basis.
- Students who are younger than 17 years of age or who are 24 years of age or older must request permission in writing to reside on campus. Students permitted to reside on campus who are younger than 17 years of age or who are 23 years of age or older may be subject to semester reviews where residential eligibility is evaluated.
- Housing is available for unmarried, traditional students only. We do not offer on-campus housing for married students.

Hall & Room Assignments
How do we assign student rooms? We assign students rooms based on available spaces according to the date when the Residence Hall Application and deposit are received and on the number of credit hours accumulated. All roommate requests must be mutual. Every attempt will be made to honor roommate requests, but they are not guaranteed. Piedmont prides itself on making every effort to match students with roommates who share like interests and hope to create life-long relationships.
How are rooms assigned after the freshman year? Current students will be allowed to choose their fall residence hall placement during the Spring Semester. A $250 fee is required, prior to sign up, and will be applied to the Fall housing charges. If the room assignment is canceled any time prior to taking occupancy, the housing fee will be forfeited to the university.
