Living away from home within a new and diverse community will allow you many opportunities for friendship, fun and personal growth. We hope you find everything you need to be successful academically and personally here at BGSU. Remember, our staff is here to help answer any questions or concerns and to welcome you to the campus community.
Housing Sign-Up for New Students
Housing sign-up for new admitted students is available online beginning September 16, 2013 at 9am! To check out your options for living on campus, visit the Housing Options page on our website. If you have not activated your BGSU email account, you will need to do so prior to submitting your housing preferences (www.bgsu.edu/newaccount).
To submit your housing preferences for the 2014-15 academic year, follow these steps:
- Go to the Web portal http://my.bgsu.edu
- Enter your MyBGSU username and password
- Click on "My Room and Meals"
- Follow the onscreen steps to make the initial housing payment, review the On-Campus Housing and Dining Agreement and complete the room, meal and roommate preference process
Finding a Place to Live
There are many housing options available to students. Make sure to check out our various residence halls to determine where you would like to live. On-campus housing sign-up is now available for 2014-15 in your MyBGSU account in the My Room and Meals area. For housing sign-up assistance, check out our help page for new students with instructions and answers to some frequently asked questions. You can also sign up to live in our Residential Learning or Theme Communities at any time.
Rooms range from $2,580 to $3,620 per semester depending on the residence hall and room type. Meal plans can range from $1,512 to $1,953 depending on individual preference. For room rates and meal plan prices, look at our full meal plan and rate descriptions. For more information on meal plans or if you have any questions or concerns about meal plan options, please refer to the BGSU Dining website.
Our Residential Learning Communities have been nationally recognized as among the best by U.S. News & World Report! BGSU offers many different Residential Learning and Theme Communities that fit many different lifestyles and interests. Check to see if we have a Community that fits your lifestyle!
When you submit your housing preferences, you can choose to request a roommate or be assigned one. If you are not requesting a specific roommate, it is important for you to accurately fill out the Lifestyle Questionnaire to help us best match you with a roommate. Living with a roommate can be one of the best parts of your college life experience. To ensure that both roommates have similar expectations, each student is required to fill out a roommate agreement. If problems arise that you are unable to work out with your roommate, seek out the assistance of a Resident Advisor or Hall Director. They will be more than willing to help make your life in a residence hall a great experience!
