Substance Free Housing
The Office of Community Engagement offers a housing option that is aimed to support students to remain substance free. The Wellness Center does not have anything to do with the housing lottery; Wellness thought it would be helpful to list this housing information here.
Substance Free Housing
Students in substance-free housing agree to remain drug, smoke, and alcohol free. Students that are found responsible for use of any of these substances will be removed from this housing area. Substance-Free Housing is located within the Olde apartment community. Please note: All Purchase College residence halls are drug and smoke free, and all first-year residence halls are designated as alcohol free. In order to attain Substance-Free Housing, please select this option on your housing application. If you are not able to select the option on your housing application or are having difficulty completing this process, please contact OCE at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Individuals selecting this housing option will be required to sign a Substance-Free Housing Agreement. Violation of this agreement will cause for immediate removal from the Substance-Free Housing community.
