The purpose of interest housing is to provide student organizations with an option to pursue living in community. Groups are required to create a purpose statement and identify goals for their housing group.
Students per Group: 8-10 students based on assignments availability
Interest Housing Requirements: Groups wishing to establish an interest housing group must meet the following qualifications to be considered:
Student Leadership: Interest housing communities function as student-led extensions of their parent organizations. Each community must have a single identified student leader who lives in the community and acts as the Community Liaison, or point of contact between RL&H and the group’s members. Learn more about the Community Liaison role on our REC Student Leader page.
Interest Housing Programming and Budget: Interest Housing Groups are not required to complete a programming requirement, except where specified in their group’s goals. However, programming partnerships with the parent organization are encouraged.
Interest Housing groups do not receive a budget; however, funding for programs may be requested through Residence Education and other funding sources within the University. Funding is granted on a case-by-case basis and depends on the availability of funds and the nature of the request. Funding requests should relate to a program or initiative that directly supports the purpose and goals of the community or the overall mission of Residential Engagement Communities.
