Residence life is a big part of your education at BGSU—so big that freshmen and sophomores are required to live in University housing unless they commute from home.
Think of your residence hall as a small community, the center of your new campus social life, even an opportunity to develop your leadership skills. When you live on campus, you’re just minutes away from your classes, dining centers, libraries, Student Recreation Center and downtown. You may choose both your roommate and residential area on a space-available basis.
No matter what you’re hungry for, you can find it at one of our on-campus dining areas. Eat in or carry out at traditional dining centers, snack bars, delis, food courts and restaurants in the residence halls and the Bowen-Thompson Student Union. Chartwells, our dining services provider, offers you award-winning “Pulse on Dining” menus to create great food and a wonderful dining experience. You also can stock your fridge or snack cupboard at one of our convenience stores. Each year you purchase a meal plan to fit your lifestyle; food purchases are deducted automatically from your prepaid account.
