The Office of Community Engagement which administers the housing program, is committed to those values and to provide residence halls and apartments for students who share those values.

The College will provide housing for students who take their educational work seriously and who are contributing and responsible members of this vitally artistic and academic community. For this reason, and in an effort to promote the living and learning environments in all of our residence areas, the College will not provide housing to students who are on both academic and disciplinary probation.

Students that are dismissed from Purchase College due to either academic or disciplinary reasons will forfeit all housing fees which includes the housing deposit.

Below are some Housing Policies, listed in alphabetical order - additional policies can be viewed through the Student Code of Conduct, and through the Residence License Agreement.  Additional questions can be sent to

How will the double probation policy be implemented?

Continuing students who are on either academic or disciplinary probation, or on both, will be able to participate in the room selection process and select a room. At the end of each semester, academic and disciplinary probation will be checked. Any student who is on both academic and disciplinary probation will be notified that his/her room has been cancelled and that he/she is not eligible for on-campus housing for the following semester. Once a student is removed from either academic or disciplinary probation, he/she will be eligible, upon request, to be placed on a waiting list for on-campus housing.
