Requests Prior to Occupancy

CCU is committed to a comprehensive educational experience that includes a residential component. All degree-seeking, full-time, first- and second-year students who graduated from high school within two calendar years prior to enrolling in Coastal Carolina University are required to live with University Housing and purchase a meal plan, Housing and Meal Plan Requirement (STUD-336).

The Housing Exemption form allows students to request exemption from STUD-336 and share information that justifies an exemption. The Housing and Meal Plan Requirement applies to all registered CCU students and those students in specific residential programs (Nursing 2+2 and Bridge).

Review the information below prior to submitting a request and do not make any alternative housing arrangements until you have received a decision. Otherwise if you are denied, you'll be responsible for multiple housing payments. The Housing Exemption Request form is located in MyCoastalHome.

If you have any questions about the process, contact University Housing.
