Future Falcon Housing

You may be new to this process, but we have been doing this for years. Let us guide you through the Housing Process, so all you have to worry about is how you are going to accessorize your new space and all the new friends you are going to make next year.

New students joining us for the first time in Fall of 2024 are required to live on campus unless you meet one of our housing exemptions.

Your $200 initial housing payment must be made by 11:59 pm. EST to receive your Room Selection Time email.  

May 16

Room Selection Times will be sent to your BGSU email account after 3 p.m. EST. Selection Times are 100% RANDOMIZED.  

May 20-22

New students who have completed their Housing and Dining Meal Plan and made their $200 payment will select their room.

New Student Housing Guide

When you are ready to commit to BGSU, the next step is to start your housing application.

The housing application process starts out by completing the Housing & Meal Plan Application in MyBGSU where you will also make your $200 initial housing payment. Once the agreement is complete, you have a few optional steps you can consider; such as forming a Room Selection Group, joining a community, consider All Gender Housing and connecting with Accessibility Services if you need a housing accommodation. 

If you decide not to join a learning community and you are not interested in living in All Gender Housing, the next step in the Housing Application is Room Selection.

Step 1 | Be Admitted to BGSU

If you are going to be new to BGSU next fall, you can begin your housing application and make your $200 initial housing payment starting at 9 a.m. EST on Jan. 3 — but you first need to be admitted to BGSU. After being admitted, completing the housing application and making the initial housing payment is the next step toward committing to BGSU.

Not admitted to BGSU yet?

Check your application status here and submit any missing credentials.

You will need a MyBGSU account to make the initial housing payment.

Step 2 | Compete your Housing & Meal Plan Application

After being admitted, in order to select on-campus housing, you will need to log in to your MyBGSU Housing and Meal Plan Application, located in the Housing & Residence Life section, and complete the following:

  1. Accept the terms of the On-Campus Housing and Dining Agreement.
  2. Make the $200 initial housing payment.*
  3. Submit Health and Emergency Contact Information.
  4. Complete the Lifestyle Questionnaire.
  5. Select a meal plan. New students must select a custom meal plan option.
  6. Optional: Students who wish to apply to live in a Learning Community will be able to do so during this step.

Please note: The day you make your housing payment does NOT determine your Room Selection Time. Room Selection Times are 100% randomized.

* The $200 initial housing payment is completely refundable until May 15, 2024, if you decide you no longer want to attend BGSU.

How to Complete the Agreement if you are Under 18

If you are under the age of 18 at the time you need to fill out the Housing & Dining Agreement, there are a few additional steps you need to follow.

  • Make sure your parent or guardian has access to their email. They will need to digitally sign the agreement and the system will need to email them access during this process.
  • It will be up to you, the student, to provide the first name, last name and email address of your parent or guardian. 
  • It is VERY important you provide the exact spelling your parent or guardian will use. Example: If you type 'Sue' and your guardian types 'Susan', the system will not recognize this as a match.

Step 3 | Room Selection

Now that you have completed your Housing & Meal Plan Agreement and made your $200 Initial Housing Payment your next step is the Room Selection process.
