ballentine boys

Clarion University houses approximately 1,500 students in six residence halls. Offered are residence hall suites, traditional residence halls and, at Reinhard Villages, apartment-style living. Combined, we provide approximately 2,100 beds for Clarion students.

First-time-in-college-students and transfer students with less than 24 earned credits whose permanent address is greater than 30 miles from campus are required to live in university-affiliated housing for their first four semesters. You may choose to live in our traditional residence halls, residence hall suites, or in an apartment at Reinhard Villages.

All of our housing provides a cross-section of students representing most aspects of a highly diverse student body. Housing  assignments and roommate information is emailed in mid-July for students requesting housing in August and mid-December/early January for students requesting housing in January.

Traditional rooms and suites are furnished with beds, desks, chairs, dressers, and closets or wardrobes. Additionally, the common area of the suites provides a sofa, chair, coffee and end tables. Apartments at Reinhard are completely furnished and include a washer/dryer, dishwasher, and garbage disposal.

Students should plan to furnish linens, blankets, pillows, bedding, desk lamps, a landline telephone, (not Reinhard Villages) and other personal items. Cable and high-speed Internet are provided in all housing, with local telephone included in the traditional halls and suites. Residence halls and suites offer coin/Eagle Dollar operated laundry facilities and vending machines, as well as TV and study lounges. Kitchen facilities and/or microwave ovens are available for student use.

Graduate assistants and undergraduate Community Assistants, under the guidance and supervision of professional area 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 our residence hall students including but not limited to: primary contact point for the residence hall staff, package pick up for residence hall students, 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.

Residence hall applications must be submitted annually, and returning students will be notified of the times these are available online. For incoming students, applications will be accepted on a rolling basis. Housing information and on-line 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 fees. Refunds cannot be made unless the student withdraws from the university or is granted an agreement release. The Center for Residence Life Services follows the University Refund Schedule, however after the start of the semester housing and/or meal plans will be pro-rated.

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 regarding 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.

Effective July 1, 2012, Clarion University applies a notification of student disciplinary expulsions and suspensions on Academic Transcripts. This notification will be viewed on official, unofficial, and electronic transcripts.
