allowing some junior to move off campus and encouraged (required) some portion of seniors due to shortage of dorm space. I moved off senior year and don't think it was a particularly smart decision. Housing options in those days were pretty awful. It is certainly better now. But requiring students to live on campus for 3 years is fine. The ND dorm life experience separates it from most other universities, for the better.
