Age Requirement

For 2018–19: All incoming students who were born on or after September 1, 1996 and will hold a high school diploma by September 1, 2018 are required to live in Lenfest Hall during their first two years of study at Curtis. Additionally, incoming students who are over 18 years of age and pursuing a high school diploma are required to live in Lenfest Hall during their first two years of study at Curtis.

Students who are 17 years of age and under and pursuing a high school diploma are required to live with a parent or guardian off-campus. Younger students who initially live off-campus with a parent or guardian are required to move into Lenfest Hall at the start of the academic year after they turn 18 or complete their high school diploma, whichever comes first.

Older students are strongly encouraged to consider the cost, safety, and convenience of living in Lenfest Hall.
