To maintain a less residentially dense campus to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and to accommodate students with a fully remote spring semester schedule, the university is announcing the following changes to its university residency requirement for all current and incoming first-year, sophomore and transfer students for the spring 2021 semester only:
If you are able to register for and secure a fully online spring 2021 semester AND you will be living at your permanent home address, the university will release you from the on-campus residency requirement.
You must be enrolled in a full online schedule and submit a residency waiver request to the Office of Residence Life by Tuesday, Dec. 15, at 4 p.m. CST to exercise the residency requirement waiver. Release forms can be downloaded from the ORL website and emailed to ORL@marquette.edu when completed. Students who completed a form for the fall term will need to resubmit a form for the spring term.
Your eligibility will be based on a fully online course load as reflected in CheckMarq — self-reporting will not be sufficient. If your class schedule, as shown in CheckMarq changes from a fully online course load to include at least one in person class or hybrid class schedule on or before February 2, 2021, you will be assigned to a residence hall space and meal plan.
