Community Living Option Application

A community living option (CLO) is an off campus housing privilege within the hamlet of Houghton and some surrounding areas; approved students are responsible for securing their own rental contracts. Students living in a CLO are still expected to abide by the Statement of Community Responsibilities and Community Covenant.

The application process for CLOs occurs each year in January and February for the following academic year. Typically only students who have earned 90 or more credits are granted CLOs. Students do not need to apply for CLO status during the semester in which they are student teaching. Please email housing@houghton.edu with questions.

This application is closed for the 2019-2020 academic year.
