Commuter Hall Policy


The Commuter Hall Policy allows for commuter students to interact in the Seton Hall residential community, while proving parameters to help promote a safe living environment that is conducive to student learning. The Commuter Hall Policy applies to all non-residential students who apply to be a part of commuter hall. 


University Policy


Commuter: Any person who is a registered Seton Hall student and does not have a housing assignment,

Good financial standing: Bursar balance that is less than $1,500 at the time Housing and Residence Life sends applicant names for verification to the Bursar's office. 


Seton Hall University commuter students must complete a Commuter Hall Access Privileges Application (located under "my forms" in eRezLife) at the beginning of every term to be granted un-escorted access to the residence halls during Monday-Friday, 9:30am-4:30pm. The application will be open each fall and spring semesters beginning the first day of class and will close on the last day of add/drop. Commuter students must be in good financial standing when applying for Commuter Hall. A commuter student who is denied commuter hall access, due to NOT being in good financial standing, may reapply for Commuter Hall the next academic semester.  

Commuter students who apply for and are approved for Commuter Hall Access Privileges are required to abide by the following terms:

  • Violation of parameters of Commuter Hall program will result in loss of the privilege for remainder of year.
  • Violation of any University or Housing and Residence Life policies, while in the residence hall, will be treated under the Community Standards process.
  • Provide accurate emergency contact information and re-enroll each semester for the continuance of Commuter Hall Access Privileges.
  • Agree to leave SHU ID card at the front desk of the residence hall they are visiting. 
  • Agree to regularly check SHU Email for any potential updates regarding this privilege.
  • Agree to maintain a clear balance on their SHU Bursar Account.

Commuter Students who are not approved for Commuter Hall Access Privileges must abide by all Guest and Visitation policies.
