Frequently asked questions (Students)

1. How are college/university students living on campus counted by the Census Bureau?
If you live in a dormitory, residence hall, sorority or fraternity house, you’ll receive a 2010 Census form in April or May 2010. No need to mail the form, simply complete it and turn it in to your school’s designated census form return site.

2. How are students living in off-campus housing counted by the Census Bureau?
A 2010 Census form will be delivered or mailed to your house or apartment in March 2010. All students living at the address are considered one household, so only one form should be completed that includes information about all the people living at that address. Return the form in the U.S. mail envelope provided.

3. How are students who live with parents or guardians counted by the Census Bureau?
If you commute to school and reside full-time at your parents’ or guardians’ household, you should be accounted for on your parents’ or guardians’ household form.
