Non-Resident Membership

Teal College is a tightknit community. Students who leave the community often express their desire to remain affiliated with it in some formal way. Non-resident membership is an opportunity to "officially" recognize what is already true: that the relationships they formed while living in the hall have not simply disappeared with their departure - that they are, in essence, still members of the community.


Definition: A non-resident member is any student not residing within Teal Residential College yet still eligible to participate in the College's events and use facilities or other college resources. Non-resident members receive the following privileges:

  • Access to Teal facilities. (Non-resident members will not be given swipe access to the hallways, but to common spaces.)
  • Access to all programming, events, and other college resources

The following is expected of non-resident members:

  • Pay the $75 College programming fee one time.
  • Uphold the standards and expectations of the College Constitution, the College Council, and Campus Living & Learning.


To be eligible for non-resident membership, an applicant must meet the following criteria:

  • Must have resided in Teal College for two full years, or one full year if an applicant has been forced to leave Teal because of a lack of available space.
  • Must have and maintain a minimum 2.5 GPA per semester.

Students who are eligible and want to apply for non-resident membership must prepare the following for the online application:

  • Response to the following questions: In your time living in Teal, how did you contribute to the life of the community? What do you hope to get out of being a non-resident member? How will you support the mission of Teal in this new role?
  • The names and contact information of two current Teal residents who will support his or her application for non-resident membership.
