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.
Note: The current housing contract language is applicable until otherwise noted. The 2016-2017 revision will be available at the beginning of the academic year.
Agnes Scott College is a residential liberal arts institution. The residential environment is a key component of each student’s college experience. Students enrolled at Agnes Scott College are expected to live in on campus housing for the duration of their tenure at the college. Any exception to this policy must be approved by the Office of Residence Life. Exceptions to this requirement are contained within this document and the student handbook.
Requests by current students must be submitted no later than March 1st, for the Fall semester and November 1st, for spring semester. Transfer and First year students must submit request before June 1st. Late request may automatically be denied or reviewed on a case by case basis.
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. You must turn this form in to Kelly Deasy from Office of Disability Services, Office of Academic Advising, in Buttrick Hall 104. Fall semester requests are due March 1st for current students and June 1st for newly admitted students.
