Am I required to live in campus housing in order to participate in the CEaL program?

All CEaL students are required to live on campus, unless you are living with a parent/legal guardian within 50 miles of CCU and that is the address on file with the Office of Admissions, you are required to live on campus. There are many benefits to living on campus: you are closer to the action, getting to classes is easy, and meals are prepared for you.

I’m local, do I have to live on campus?

All students are required to live on campus, unless you are living with a parent/legal guardian within 50 miles of CCU and that is the address on file with the Office of Admissions, you are required to live on campus.

Do I have to live and room with other CEaL students?

NO! CEaL students can reside in any residence hall they prefer on campus. Because CEaL students are cohorted together in their English and First-Year Experience classes and participate in programming specifically designed for them, they will have opportunities to work together academically and socially while in the program.

When will I be able to select my room assignment?

You will be able to select your room assignment in MyCoastalHome in late May. You can access MyCoastalHome through University Housing. See the University Housing website for more details about room selection.
