UHC opened its first Residence Hall in 2018. Living on campus at UHC is affordable and convenient. UHC’s housing facility is co-ed and is available to all students and all majors. There are many benefits of living on campus, including higher GPAs, higher graduation rates, and being an active part of our community. As an on-campus resident, you will enjoy amenities of the new facility, including a fitness center that is free to residents, experience being a part of a smaller campus community and fostering greater friendships and student interaction beyond the classroom.

Exemption Criteria

All first-year, full-time students living beyond a fifty-mile radius of the UHC campus are required to live on campus. Exemptions may be granted to the first-year housing requirement
by contacting Residence Life at if you meet the following exemption criteria.

  • Age 21 years or older as of the first day of Fall classes
  • Married as of the first day of Fall classes
  • Custody of one or more dependent children
  • Part-time enrollment
  • Military service
  • Reside with a family member that is within a 50-mile radius of campus in a property owned by an immediate family member (parent, legal guardian, grandparent, aunt, or uncle)

Failure to provide adequate support for exemption or providing false or misleading information on which a granted exemption is made would subject the student to a penalty fee for the term of enrollment assessed on the student’s account for each semester in which the student does not comply. Disciplinary action may also apply in compliance with the Student Handbook.


Meal Plans are flexible for all students who live on campus. There is no set dollar amount per swipe per meal, as all meal items are priced a la carte. Pick and choose what and when you want to eat. Add more funds to your meal plan at any time. The unused funds will roll from the Fall semester into the Spring semester, but unused funds by the end of the Spring semester will not be refunded.


Student vehicles are welcomed on campus but require a valid parking permit, which can be obtained during the UHC registration process. Permits are required at all hours, day and night.

In addition, UHC is a bike-friendly campus. Bike racks are available around campus. Please bring your own bike lock to use when using the bike racks.
