You're getting ready to make Cedarville your home — here's the information you need choose your residence hall.

To Do:

Confirm your plans to enroll at Cedarville this spring. Pay your reservation deposit.

Residence Life

Cedarville University requires all unmarried students under 23, taking seven or more credit hours and not living with their parents, to live in the residence halls. Students who want to live off campus must complete an off-campus application through the Residence Life website.

Housing assignments are made by the Residence Life Deans based on availability in our residence halls. Any housing or roommate requests should be made to the appropriate Dean.

Any changes to a housing request must be made with the Residence Life Deans. Once housing assignments are made, opportunities for change are limited and may not be possible.

Please note that your student health forms must be received by University Medical Services before you are allowed to move into a residence hall.

Personal Property

Cedarville is not responsible for theft or damage that occurs to your personal property while living in University-owned housing. Students who are not covered by their parents' homeowner's insurance should consider purchasing renter's insurance.

Meal Plan

All students living in the residence halls are required to carry a meal plan. Information regarding meal plan options is provided by the Cashiers Office.

disability services to complete the necessary paperwork at least four months before enrolling at Cedarville, in order for housing accommodations to be considered.

Cedarville University is sponsoring a student health insurance plan through United Health Care for students that need health insurance. This student insurance plan is a major medical PPO health insurance plan that is compliant with the new Affordable Care Act.

All full time undergraduate and P1 Pharmacy students taking 12 or more credit are required to have health insurance and are automatically charged this student health insurance. You may elect to waive this charge if you are covered by a major health insurance policy. Full-time undergraduate students who have comparable health insurance coverage can waive the University sponsored plan, however the Insurance Waiver Form must be submitted by January 24, 2014.

Important: If you want to waive the student health insurance plan, you must fill out the waiver form online by January 24, 2014 or you will be charged for the insurance. If you are going to accept the student health insurance, you must go online to enroll in the insurance plan and download an insurance card.

Cedarville University is intentional about creating a Christ-centered community, rigorous in our pursuit of scholarship, and balanced in our approach to Christian lifestyle.

We call our student handbook The Cedarville Experience because it includes many of the guidelines and principles that will shape your time at Cedarville. It is based on a set of core values and the Cedarville Covenant which shape each student's experience at Cedarville University.

There are no restrictions on vehicle registration. However, for academic reasons, freshmen are discouraged from bringing a vehicle their first semester. Please understand that parking is limited and upperclassmen are given priority. All vehicles parked on campus must be registered with Campus Safety.

This year more than 500 students will commute to campus. This includes married students, non-traditional students, students who live close enough to campus to commute from home, and approximately 200 students who have permission to move off campus. We provide a variety of services and programs to help off-campus students take full advantage of the Cedarville experience. If you are a commuter student, please plan to attend the new student orientation meeting.
