No, it is not required. We know that living with fellow Great Oaks Fellows members can ease the transition to a new location and contribute to fellows sense of mission, therefore improving the Great Oaks Fellows year experience. For those reasons, we generally prefer that Great Oaks Fellows members live in the residences. However, fellows may elect to live offsite. Please note that we are unable to provide any additional monetary benefit if you do not elect to live in the provide Great Oaks accommodations.
