Exemption Request Process

Once your application is received it will be reviewed by a staff member in the housing assignments office and you will be notified via your UWRF e-mail account as to the outcome of your residency exemption request.

If your request is denied, you may request an appeal to a student sub-committee of the Residence Hall Association by sending an e-mail to indicating your request for an appeal.  You will be expected to appear at the RHA sub-committee meeting to indicate your reason for appeal and to be available to answer questions regarding the request from the student committee. Their decision is final.  

If your reason for appeal is personal and you do not wish to have the personal reasons for appeal shared publicly with the student committee, you may request an administrative review of your appeal to the Director of Residence Life by e-mailing with your request for a private review of your request.  You will be contacted for a meeting with the Director of Residence Life.

During the summer months, when RHA is not in session, all residency exemption application requests will be reviewed by a senior level administrator in Residence Life.
