The UNF President’s Office allowed upwards of 200 exemptions for the freshman housing mandate in Fall 2012, the first semester of its implementation.

President John Delaney said the majority of exemptions fall into certain categories. Delaney said these categories included health concerns, extreme family need, allergy issues and religious persuasion.

Delaney said all issues were verified by the President’s Office.

Dei Allard, UNF’s associate director of Housing and Residence Life, said they have not had any issues with the freshman housing mandate, since all exemptions are handled through the President’s Office.

Delaney said all requests are handled on a case-by-case basis. He said he is happy with the implementation of the freshman housing mandate in its first semester.
