New Student Housing Eligibility Status
Nov. 15 was the first day the new student housing application opened. Students who will be attending BGSU for the first time in Fall 2020 can now complete the housing application and make their $200 initial housing payment. This payment is a portion of the overall housing bill for 2020-2021 and will determine the DAY (not time) the students room selection time will be. EVERYONE who pays on the same day will be randomly assigned a time before the students who paid the following day. Paying earlier in the day does NOT give a student an advantage over the students who pay after them on the same day and is 100% refundable through May 1, 2020.
Returning Student Housing Eligibility Status
The Housing Selection Process is different for returning students compared to the process for new students. There are over 19,000 students who are enrolled in BGSU and around 6,000 beds are available in on-campus residence halls. If you are a returning student, you will be assisgned a housing status for the following academic year. On Oct. 16, a housing status email will be sent to your BGSU email account. It is important you read through this email very carefully. In this email you will find out if your housing status is Guaranteed or Not Guaranteed.
