Residency Requirement

To support the University's commitment to the Pacific experience, all unmarried, full-time undergraduate students are required to live on campus during their first and second years, excluding summer sessions, unless the student has been approved for an exception or space is not available to accommodate this requirement. 

Exceptions to this policy are limited to: 

  1. Students who are under the age of 17 or over the age of 21, or 
  2. Students transferring to Pacific with more than 56 credits (excludes credits obtained through AP coursework or summer bridge programs), or 
  3. Students who have lived on campus at another higher education institution for four semesters (excluding summer sessions), or 
  4. Students who live with their parents/legal guardians in their permanent residence within 30 miles of the Pacific's Stockton campus, or 
  5. Students who are participating in a specific academic program involving study abroad or a non-local internship or cooperative education experience which is more than 30 miles from the Pacific's Stockton campus, or
  6. Students who are married, in a registered domestic partnership, or a similar legal relationship and present a valid, certified copy of a Certificate of Marriage, Certificate of Registered Domestic Partnership, or a similar document issued by a government or other legally authorized authority.

Students must complete the Live at Home form and provide necessary documentation to be exempted from the Residency Requirement.

More than just a place to live

On-campus living at Pacific is based on a cohort model. First-year students live together, second-year students reside together, and upper division, graduate, and professional students are blended into the many apartment communities we have. Your integration into campus life is supported with vibrant and interactive programs, a dynamic professional staff team, and a diverse community that cares.
