University policy requires that entering medical, veterinary medical, and graduate students live in campus residence halls for their first term; students entering into the premedical, preveterinary medical, and undergraduate programs must live in the campus residence halls for their first year and will be billed accordingly. Students will be assigned housing and roommates in order of their acceptance. If students have a specific roommate request, it should be indicated to the housing coordinator. After this initial period on campus, upperclassmen who did not initially contract for their second term will be accommodated on campus according to availability by a lottery system and will be billed accordingly (see housing rates on separate insert). There are many houses, apartments, and efficiency units close to campus. All matriculated students on the Grenada campus are strongly advised to live in University-recommended housing either on- or off-campus, at the discretion of the University. There are currently no housing accommodations available on campus for students with children or pets. Students residing off-campus are responsible for their own housing expenses. The University reserves the right to require students to live on campus. During clinical terms, students are responsible for their own room and board; although, the University and affiliated hospitals may provide some assistance.
