Music Learning Community

The Music Community is a themed community within the Kreischer Quadrangle. Located across the street from the Moore Musical Arts Center, students in this community are able to share day-to-day living experiences, hold study sessions, attend concerts together, and utilize the in-house practice rooms. Preference is given to students who are accepted into the College of Musical Arts but all students can apply.

How to Apply

Each community has a set of residence hall rooms specifically designated for them. To sign up for one of these rooms, you must apply, and be accepted into the community, prior to April 25, 2018. To ensure your chance to live in the community, please complete the following steps:

  1. Complete your housing application
  2. Apply here and login with your BGSU username and password
  3. Click on Add a New Community Enrollment Request and choose your desired community and academic year/term

Please Note: Students can apply only for two communities on their own. If you want to apply to more than two communities, please contact the additional communities you are interested in so they can apply for you. If you have applied for two and change your mind, go into the system and withdraw yourself from the one(s) you are no longer interested in. This will open up a space for you again.

After you have submitted your request to join a community, you will receive an email from the community director approving your request. When it’s time for you to select your room in the next phase, you will be able to view and select rooms within the designated community space in the community’s residence hall. For example, if you choose to join the Chapman Learning Community, you will select a room in Kohl Hall.
