Ozarka College agrees to provide TWO, unlimited use, network connections and dedicated wireless access for each unit. Ozarka College is not liable for any damage to the resident's/owner's computer or accessories nor responsible for any maintenance or repair to any part of the resident's/owner's computer. Under no circumstances will Ozarka College be liable to the resident for any special, consequential, indirect or similar damages, including the loss of data arising from the use or inability to use the network as well as from interrupted services.

Personal wireless access points are not allowed in the housing units. Use of personal access points causes interference with the Ozarka provided wireless coverage and will degrade signal for others.



Housing Application

A new student will select his/her interest in living in on-campus on the application for admission. At which point the student has met all requirements for admissions and registered for full time status, the student will be placed on the student housing waiting list.


A returning student who is a first time housing applicant, will apply for student housing through his/her myOzarka learning portal. At which point the student has registered for full-time status, the student will be placed on the student housing waiting list.


Selection will be based on the date of application, academic performance, and College priorities. Priority will be given to veterans, students entering high demand and STEM programs, and students residing at a distance greater than 25 miles from the Melbourne campus, and new or returning student status; priority will be given to returning students.


For full consideration for the application term, a student must complete the housing request and course registration processes by the following dates prior to the term.


Term Priority Deadline
Summer II June 15
Fall July 15
Spring December 1
Summer I April 15

Housing Agreement

It is the policy of the College that students enter into a student housing agreement for housing accommodations on an academic year basis. Students will not be released from the binding room and board agreement, or refunded any part of the room and board payment, except for the following reasons: withdrawal from the college, unanticipated financial hardship, or documented medical problems. Other exceptions may apply based on further review. To be released from financial obligation, the student must notify the Vice President of Student Services in writing stating the reason(s) exemption should be considered.


Housing Charges

Student Housing charges are stated below and on the college website. Charges are subject to change. Residents must make payment arrangements for Student Housing charges by the date of move-in. Payment plans are available through the myOzarka student portal.


If a student is granted release of financial obligation and moves out of housing prior to 75% of the term, he/she will be entitled to a prorated refund. The refund will be prorated based on the number of full weeks remaining in the period for which student has fully paid.

Unit Assignments

Every effort is made to honor room, roommate, and suitemate requests; however, the College makes these assignments. Students may change assignments, but only with advance approval of the Vice President of Student Services.

The College does not discriminate in assigning students to housing on the basis of race, religious affiliation, or national origin. The College reserves the right to reassign living assignments when deemed necessary. Returning residents will receive first right of refusal. Rooms for new students are assigned based on the housing application date, academic performance, and College priorities. Priority will be given to Veterans, students entering high demand and STEM programs, and students residing at a distance greater than 25 miles from the Melbourne campus.
