The Office of Housing & Residence Life is committed to creating a living and learning environment where each student can achieve their academic and personal goals. Student involvement is an important piece of creating and maintaining halls which are safe, conducive to academics and fun! To learn more about Housing & Residence Life, click here, including current rates for housing and meal plans.


If you plan to live on campus this year you must complete the online housing application. Please take the time to fill in the information in the application as accurately as possible because it will be used throughout the academic year. After your application is submitted, the office will review your application and place you into a housing assignment based off your application preferences. Housing assignments for first year students are finalized over the summer, prior to fall move-in. All assignment information will be sent to the student’s Cedar Crest email address.  


Please note: all undergraduate resident students are required to have a meal plan. First and second year students must have either the Canova Meal Plan or the Canova Premium Meal Plan.


If you have any questions, contact the Office of Housing & Residence Life at 610-606-4603 or

Commuter Meal Plan Applications Due August 30th or January 1st!

Cedar Crest offers great meal plan options for commuter students. Enjoy “all you care to eat” at the dining hall or ala carte at our Falcon’s Nest. Meal plan benefits include enjoying additional “Falcon Dollars,” not to mention not having to worry about pulling out cash or a credit card when you are on campus and want a bite. The meal plan makes it easier to get together with friends on campus or have dinner with a study group. For more information about the meal plans that are available, click here.

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act

At Cedar Crest, we believe the success of each student is due to a partnership between the student, College and family. That is why it is important for you to know about FERPA. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal privacy law that gives parents certain protections with regard to their children’s education records, such as report cards, transcripts, disciplinary records, contact and family information, and class schedules. Both students and parents should become familiar with FERPA.

In accordance to the Department of Education's "Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act" (FERPA), written permission from the student is required in order for Cedar Crest College to be able to provide information regarding student's financial aid, student accounts and academic information. The following form allows the student to specify those permissions.
