BGSU Residential Requirement

Before you sign a lease, it is VERY IMPORTANT that you understand the University's two-year live-on policy known as the Residency Requirement. Bowling Green State University’s Board of Trustees has set a Residency Requirement that states a student must live on campus their first two years (four semesters). This requirement is enforced unless one or more of the exemption criteria are met -or- the student has an approved housing appeal.


Off-Campus Student Services has teamed up with Falcon Media to provide you with the most updated information about rentals in the BG area. Here you can find information about available rentals, see videos from different properties, find roommates and connect to other important resources.


Search for available rentals, roommates and resources in our BG Rental Guide.

City of Bowling Green

If you choose to live off-campus in the City of Bowling Green, it is important that you become familiar with the different laws and expectations related to your residency in the City. The information below includes some of those important laws and ordinances.

off-campus housing resources-downtown-icon

For many students, the cost of rent and utilities may be overwhelming and it may be tempting to add an extra roommate or two to help carry the expense. However, the Bowling Green City Occupancy Ordinance sets strict limits on how many unrelated persons can legally occupy a residence.

Your landlord may have additional restrictions for long-term guests (roommates or guests not listed on the lease). You need to know the occupancy limits on your apartment or house. If you are over the limit, you risk having your lease terminated. As you consider a place to live off-campus, please keep this in mind and remember to ask your potential property manager about this ordinance. For more information, contact the Planning Division of the City of Bowling Green.
