Housing and Storage

Planning for your Departure

When you submit your application for a non-Carleton off-campus study program, you are automatically removed from the housing process for the applicable term.

If you are not approved for OCS, cancel, or withdraw your OCS plans, you must first notify the OCS office. Residential Life will reinstate your eligibility for housing once notified of the change by the OCS office.

When planning to depart campus you are responsible for checking-out of your current living space. You may utilize Student Storage to store your belongings. Visit Residential Life for more information about storage locations and policies.

Planning for your Return

When planning for your return from OCS you should complete the Housing Information Request form. You are also encouraged to designate a Housing Proxy to help make decisions on your behalf. If you are on OCS during any part of the Housing Selection Process (Northfield Option, Interest House Selection, Room Draw) for the upcoming academic year, you can complete those processes if you have reliable internet access or communication with your Housing Proxy. If you have questions or concerns about housing or student storage contact reslife@carleton.edu.
