Students requesting housing during intercession and break periods will be asked to provide a detailed narrative of their circumstances along with supporting documentation. A detailed explanation of why you are submitting the request, accompanied by supporting documentation (examples provided below), is required for the committee to understand your extenuating circumstance. Thoroughness and supporting documentation will play a major role in the decision for a student’s request. It is important to note that submission of a request does not guarantee approval.
Examples of Documentation:
- A signed and dated letter from the student’s documented emergency contact confirming their homelessness (noting when their home address on file became void).
- An eviction notice with an explanation of how the named party is related to the student. Note of the person named on the notice is your emergency contact. This will make it easier to verify using the student’s records.
- A letter of support from an NCCU administrator who can attest to the nature of the student’s extenuating circumstance. The letter must be on NCCU letterhead.
- Letters from other family members indicating safety concerns in the student's primary residence/the residence listed in the student’s file.
- Screenshots of relevant communication or text messages.
- Police report
Note: Please note that work schedules are not considered extenuating circumstances. Residence hall closing dates are provided (even on the academic calendar) far in advance of the actual break. This is to provide students the opportunity to properly plan for the times that residential facilities will not be available to them. Work-related accommodations are not reviewed for consideration.
