Howard Payne University requires students to live in the residence halls for four long semesters (i.e., fall and spring semesters) unless students meet one or more of the following exemptions: 1) living with parents, 2) 60 academic credit hours, 3) married, and/or 4) 22 years of age. Students under the age of 17 are not allowed to live in university housing. University housing is reserved for students who are registered as full-time students (12 or more semester credit hours).
Enrollment Deposit Requirement:
Students who will be living in university housing must submit a $200 Enrollment Deposit — $100 of which serves as a Housing Deposit — along with the completed University Housing Application/Agreement, Student Health Form and Shot Record. No room assignments can be made until these forms have been received by the Office of Student Life.
