Residency Requirement

About 80% of undergraduates reside on campus.

When applying to Wagner College, prospective students may request to live on-campus (residential) or off-campus (commuter).  Keep in mind that there is a 4-year residency requirement for residential students, but housing is guaranteed.  Students will sign up for and sign housing contracts each spring for the following academic year.

Students who enter the College as commuters may become residents during their college career by contacting the Office of Residential Education.

Under extreme circumstances, residential students may request to be released from the Residency Requirement.  A committee will review requests.  Please allow 2 weeks for processing.  Contact the Office of Residential Education at to learn more.
