Requests for changes in bed space assignments must be approved by the appropriate Residential Life staff and generally will not be considered during the first and last two weeks of each semester. Resident billing statements will be adjusted to reflect any changes in type of accommodations. Failure to follow the guidelines for changing bed space assignments will result in additional administrative charges. Residents are prohibited from taking an unauthorized roommate or permitting any part of their room to be shared by any persons not assigned by SFAI. Residents are prohibited from relocating to another room or exchanging rooms with another resident without permission. A resident moving without approval may be required to move back, may be assessed a fine, and may face disciplinary action.

If unclean conditions come to the attention of the Residential Life staff, you will be notified and given an opportunity to clean the area. Common bathrooms and bedrooms with attached bathrooms should have windows open or exhaust fans on to prevent common mold and mildew. If this is not done in a timely fashion, you will be charged for the time and labor it takes to clean the problem areas.

Upon move-out, each resident is expected to restore rooms and common areas to their original, clean condition (normal wear and tear excepted).

We created the gender-inclusive housing option in an effort to provide a healthy, inclusive and welcoming living environment for all of our students. We understand that some students maybe more comfortable sharing a room with someone of a different gender identity. We also understand that gender identity can be complex, and that the gender identity spectrum not only includes people who identify as male and female, but also those who identify as transgender, FTM, MTF, and genderqueer, among others.

If you would like to live with someone of a different gender, please fill out the information below and return it along with the rest of the housing application.

Substance Free Housing Request Form (Optional)



The Housing and Residential Life Office offers the option of living in a substance free and wellness focused community within our residence halls. Residents in substance free housing agree that they and their guests will not consume alcohol or be under the influence of alcohol or other substances while in the residence hall. In addition, they agree to abide by the Institute’s smoking policy, the Institute’s prohibition against illegal drug use, and the Institute’s policy which requires only medically prescribed use of prescription drugs.

We created the substance free housing option as an effort to provide a healthy, supportive and welcoming living environment for all of our students. We understand that individuals are coming from a wide array of experiences and backgrounds and that some individuals would prefer living in a wellness-focused community. While underage drinking and illegal drug use are not permitted anywhere within the residence halls or at SFAI, the Substance Free Community will have supplemental and specialized programming geared toward supporting a sober lifestyle. Students living in these communities agree to not use alcohol or drugs on their floor community, nor bring the effects of those substances back into the space. Upon arriving to campus in August, students opting into this community will sign a separate substance free housing contract. Violating the contract may result in community relocation.

Students who do not wish to be considered for a substance free assignment do not need to complete this supplemental request form and will be matched with a roommate following our traditional roommate pairing procedures.
