Housing Policies

Early Move-In Policy

You are not allowed under any circumstances to move into your on-campus residence prior to official campus opening, nor are you allowed to assist a fellow student do likewise. Any student found moving in before the early move-in date will likely lose their housing for the 2016-2017 academic year.

You're expected to abide by all University policies during the early move-in period. At this time, policy violations will be taken more seriously than during the academic year. Alcohol and drug violations (especially if they involve hosting or first-year students) will be taken especially seriously.

Policy violations will likely result in your immediate removal from housing, and you'll have to find off-campus accommodations. Depending on the violation, your status as a resident student — or even as a Bentley student — could be in jeopardy.

Academic Policy

All students in housing must maintain a full time status and be registered for 12 or more credits per semester to live in university housing. Requested exceptions to this policy must be submitted in writing to the Residential Center.

Below is the University's attendance policy for all students as defined by Academic Services:

Students are expected to attend all class meetings; there is a no “cut allowance.” Students must be registered and in class prior to the start of the second week of classes. If a student has not been in attendance by the first class of the second week, the student will need faculty and department chair approval to enter the class.  Instructors retain the right to deny admission to a course to any student who wishes to enroll after the first week of classes. 

After the second week, students may not register for a class and may not attend classes for which they are already registered (if they have not attended before that time). The full attendance policy is described in the Bentley University Undergraduate Student Handbook.
