Policies and Forms
Agnes Scott students sign up for housing for the academic year. Please see the 2015-2016 Housing Contract for the rights and responsibilities for on campus living.
Agnes Scott is a residential campus and students are required to live on campus during their time in school. Any exception to this policy must be approved by the office of Residence Life, please complete and submit an off-campus housing application if you feel you meet one of the exceptions.
All Agnes Scott College students are encouraged to take full advantage of the residential experience by sharing rooms with other Agnes Scott students. However, sometimes students have specific needs that indicate the sharing of a room can be detrimental to their physical/ mental health and/or ability to be successful at Agnes Scott. In these cases, students can request special accommodations that may include access to air conditioning, a single room, or access to a private bath. Students must fill out the special accommodation form and provide appropriate documentation to ensure appropriate housing accommodations are provided.
During periods were the college is closed for breaks, students may register for break housing. These breaks are Thanksgiving, Spring and Winter breaks. Thanksgiving and Spring break have no fee. To stay the entire Winter break there is a $225 fee, and to stay for a day, there is a $30 fee. Only students approved to stay can be in the residence halls during the breaks. Please complete the break housing registration if you will need to be on campus for a break.
