During the fall each year, the Office of Student Housing emails all students currently living on campus their Housing Status for the next academic year. A Student's Housing Status will either be Guaranteed or Not Guaranteed.
- First-year and transfer students admitted to BGSU for the first time as of August 2024.
- Second-year students who were first-year or new transfer students in August 2023 or January 2024 and returning to BGSU.
- Returning students who will be living in their chapter house in the Greek Village during the 2024-25 academic school year.
- Students employed by the Office of Residence Life who are required to live on campus as part of their job responsibilities.
Returning students in their third year (or more) will not be guaranteed on campus housing and need to secure off campus living accommodations. Students whose housing status is Not Guaranteed but would like to still apply to live on campus will need to complete the necessary steps to change their status to Guaranteed.
If you are a returning student who has met the residency requirement, meaning you will have lived in on-campus housing for two years/four semesters (following the upcoming Spring Semester,) you will receive the housing status, Not Guaranteed. We encourage you to secure off-campus housing arrangements, if you wish to live in on-campus housing again next year, you will need to complete the Request to Live On-Campus process.
Helpful Tip: Until you have confirmation for the Office of Student Housing that your Housing Status has been changed from Not Guaranteed to Guaranteed, you should be looking for off campus housing.
Request To Live On Campus | Oct. 2 – Nov. 15
We find most students want to live off campus after they meet their Residency Requirement, but there are a handful who like to live on-campus for more than two years. If you would like to live on campus again next year, you must submit a request to have your status changed from Not Guaranteed to Guaranteed. You will not be able to select on-campus housing if you do not fill the request form out.
Deadline to complete your Request to Live On-Campus is Wednesday, Nov. 15.
Important | Request to Live On Campus approvals will be sent to students via email to their BGSU email acount, Nov. 16.
Filling out a Request to Live On Campus does not guarantee housing. Students who are Not Guaranteed housing should consider this their status until they receive official confirmation from the Office of Student Housing.
