Housing Policies

The On-Campus Housing and Dining Agreement establishes the terms and conditions of occupancy in the University residences between the room occupant and Bowling Green State University.  All residents are expected to review and understand the obligations outlined in this agreement. *Students over the age of 18 will eletronically agree to the terms as part of the housing sign up process.  Students under the age of 18 on the first day of classes must submit a paper copy to our office, signed by a parent or legal guardian prior to Move-In (see below).
