Clark University upholds a residency requirement of four semesters for all students. The residency requirement means that students must live in on-campus housing for their first four semesters at Clark. The only exception is for students participating in a study abroad program, students who live within the Worcester city limits, or students who submit an appeal for medical reasons which are approved in conjunction with our Student Accessibility Services office and only if no accommodation can be made. Students wishing to appeal these requirements must submit a Housing Appeal Petition to the RLH Office to be reviewed by the Housing Appeals Committee. To begin a petition, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and a member of our office will reach out with more information.
