Clarion University houses students in residence hall suites, traditional residence halls and at Reinhard Villages' apartment-style living. Combined, we provide approximately 2,100 beds for Clarion students. Transfer students with fewer than 24 earned credits and first-time-in-college students whose permanent address is greater than 30 miles from campus are required to live in university-affiliated housing. A student may choose to live in traditional residence halls, new residence hall suites or in an apartment at Reinhard Villages based upon availability at the time of application. Our website and online application has the most up-to-date information about building availability at the time of your application.
All of our housing provides a cross-section of students representing most aspects of a highly diverse student body. Housing assignments are made without regard to race, religion, color, sexual orientation, ancestry or national origin. Hall and roommate preferences are taken into consideration when making assignments and are honored whenever possible. Housing assignments and roommate information are mailed out in mid-July for students requesting housing in August and mailed in mid-December/early January for students requesting housing in January.
Traditional rooms and bedrooms in the suites are furnished with beds, desks, chairs, dressers and closets or wardrobes. Additionally, the common area of the suites provides a sofa, chair and coffee and end tables. Apartments at Reinhard Villages are completely furnished and include a washer/dryer, dishwasher and garbage disposal. Students should plan to furnish linens, blankets, pillows, bedspreads, desk lamps, a telephone and other personal items. Local telephone service, cable and high-speed Internet are included in the room fees. Residence halls offer coin-/Eagle Dollar-operated laundry facilities and vending machines, television and study lounges. Kitchen facilities and/or microwave ovens are available for student use.
Graduate managers and undergraduate community assistants, under the guidance and supervision of professional residence life coordinators, staff the residence halls. The campus is served by a 24-hour service desk located in the lobby of Givan Hall. The desk is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, when school is in session. The desk serves many roles for residence hall students, including but not limited to: primary contact point for the residence hall staff, package pick-up, computer labs, equipment sign-out and temporary key sign-out.
A room may be occupied only by the students to whom it is assigned, and the agreement may not be transferred. The residence hall agreement is in effect for the entire academic year, unless otherwise specified. The only grounds for release from the agreement are withdrawal from the university, graduation or a change in student teaching or internship assignment.
Residence hall applications must be submitted annually, and returning students will be notified of the availability of the online application. Housing information and online applications will be made available to new students once they have committed to attending Clarion University through their paid deposit.
Fees for housing and food services are due and payable at the same time as other university tuition and fees. Refunds cannot be made unless the student withdraws from the university or is granted an agreement release. Refund policies for housing and food service follow the university refund schedule.
Campus residence halls are closed during university vacations and between semesters.
Judicial and Mediation Services
The Office of Judicial and Mediation Services promotes responsible citizenship by protecting student rights and maintaining the principles outlined in the Student Rights, Regulations, and Procedures Online Handbook. The office administers campus disciplinary procedures, seeks to maintain a positive living and learning environment and encourages the building of a respectful and inclusive community.
The office also serves as a resource to the university community on conflict management and resolution by providing services that promote the development of critical life skills. A mediation service is available to assist students in resolving interpersonal conflict.
