  • You are 21 years of age or older

If you meet one of these exceptions and already have a housing hold, you may fill out the Request for Release form to go through the housing release process.

Immunization Requirement

The State of Tennessee requires that all new incoming students living on campus who are under 22 years of age,  produce proof of adequate immunization against Meningococcal Disease (Meningitis) on or after your 16th birthday. You must submit this proof to the Health Services office. Please do not send anything to Residential Life. You are not allowed to check into your room or apartment if you DO NOT HAVE your meningitis documentation submitted to Health Services. Please refer all questions and submit proof to Health Services.
