      • Kosher Mod Application (Mod 82) - Fall 2015
      • The Kosher Mod is a Structurally Unique Mod that exists to provide a kosher living space for students. It is a four person mod in Prescott.

        Your application will re reviewed by the Kosher Mod committee, which is overseen by the Director of Housing. This committee fills the Kosher Mod each spring from the existing pool of applicants.

Once a student is granted housing in the Kosher Mod, their housing assignment is complete for the year and they may not participate in the housing lottery.
