Two Year Residency Policy
The on-campus living experience is vital to the growth and development of the whole student.
All students who have completed less than four semesters of college/university are required to reside in on-campus housing for their first two years at Chatham University. As an exception, students may live with parent(s) and/or legal guardians in the greater Pittsburgh area (within 30 miles of campus). Students choosing to live at home must register as a commuter and provide documentation to the Office of Residence Life & Student Activities - Student Affairs. Students found in violation will face disciplinary review and fines up to the cost of housing. Gateway students may request an exception to the residency requirement by contacting the Office of Residence Life & Student Activities - Student Affairs.
