Undergraduate students are required to live on campus for the first four semesters of their academic career. Please review the Housing Policies to confirm if you are required to live on campus. International students who will be living on campus must pay the full semester housing fee before they arrive.

Living On-Campus

Please note that if you are a new student who will be living on-campus and have paid your housing deposit, you will be able to move into your permanent housing assignment on August 14, 2023. Students arriving before this date will be responsible for making their own off-campus overnight accommodations. Students arriving between Aug. 11 through Aug. 14th will be permitted to move directly into their housing assignment as long as they have paid their housing deposit. For more important details about move-in please visit the Office of Residence Life website.

For more important details about move-in, conact the Office of Residence Life.

Attention Graduate Students!

Undergraduate Housing

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, the Residence Life staff is here to help answer any questions or concerns and to welcome you to the campus community.

BGSU offers on-campus housing to students. Pillows and bedding are NOT provided, but may be purchased in town or brought along. Students will be required to sign a legally binding housing contract upon arrival. Contact the Office of Residence Life for detailed information regarding BGSU’s housing requirements, residence hall rooms, meal plans and housing options. 

Graduate Housing

A limited number of single occupancy rooms are available in Bowling Green for an estimated cost of $325 per month. There are also some apartments available, with estimated rents ranging from $400 to $600 per month. These apartments may be furnished or unfurnished. When renting, you must pay a security deposit (1-3 months’ rent) and sign a lease, which is a legally binding contract; some landlords may also require you to have a U.S. citizen as a guarantor, which is an individual who becomes responsible for covering any rental payments if you are unable to. At the beginning, you will need about $500 to $1,500 to secure an apartment. It would be wise to secure off-campus accommodations prior to your arrival to Bowling Green. Please keep in mind that off-campus housing options become more limited toward the beginning of each semester. Therefore, DO NOT wait until the last minute to explore your options.

As an option, BGSU offers graduate students the Falcon Landing apartments, conveniently located on Wooster Street directly across from campus. Your rent includes all your furniture and internet service. Your rent will be conveniently billed by the BGSU Bursar office and placed on your student account. One bedroom (10-month lease) is approximately $640 per month. NO DEPOSIT. NO APPLICATION FEE. Contact their office for more information about leasing: falconlanding@bgsu.edu or (419) 806-4478.
