Hi, Beverly,

Thank you for reaching out. Every university handles their housing differently, so it will be best to reach out directly to your student's university for advice. That being said, if your student lives off campus, they should do their best to get involved on campus. This can help to feel more engaged with the community and university when they are not living in the dorms.
