Housing Requirements and Application Process
Trine students are required to live on campus. Students who are married, responsible for a dependent child, living at home with a parent or legal guardian (within 40 miles of Angola), or are 21 years of age on or before the first day of fall classes may be waived from this requirement.
Students with a cumulative GPA of a 2.0 or higher and have completed 48 credit hours and lived on campus for four semesters, may be approved to move into a University recognized Sorority / Fraternity House or Christian Campus House. Students who are married and under 21 years of age on or before the first day of fall classes must show a marriage license and live with the spouse in a permanent location within 40 miles from Angola, IN. In addition, International students must show dependent I-20 or dependent DS-2019. Students who are responsible for a dependent child and under 21 years of age on or before the first day of fall classes must show a State issued birth certificate.
A submitted housing deposit is required prior to being assigned a room. The Residential Room and Board Contract is binding for the entire academic year. It is required to be enrolled full-time (12 credit hours) to reside in campus housing.
All students must have the written approval from the Dean of Students prior to moving off campus. If a student fails to receive a proper contract release or provides false information, then the student may be subject to room and board charges for the entire contract term and additional actions up to and including dismissal from Trine University.
The housing deposit of $150 (submitted as part of the $300 enrollment deposit) must be paid before a room selection can be made. To cancel a room selection, a written request must be submitted to the Director of Housing by May 1 for the following fall semester. Failure to give written notification by May 1 or breaking the housing contract anytime during the academic year will result in forfeiture of the $150 housing deposit. Students with the residential housing portion of the Trine University Merit Scholarship will lose this portion of the scholarship once the student is no longer an on campus residential student. The academic merit portion will remain.
Housing and Enrollment Deposit Application Process for new students:
- Submit a $300 enrollment deposit which includes $150 for the housing deposit.
- The Housing Department will contact you via email providing instructions to begin the housing process after the deposit has been received.
The $300 enrollment and housing deposit is not refundable after May 1st. An enrollment deposit must be complete before a housing selection can be made.
