NEW STUDENT HOUSING APPLICATIONS OPEN

FRIDAY, NOV. 15 | 9 A.M. | Students who will be attending BGSU for the first time in Fall 2020 can 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 dose NOT give a student an advantage over the students who pay after them on the same day.

On Nov. 15, we anticipate a higher volume of number of students accessing the system. We can handle only 500 students at a time. If you run into an issue, please wait for a little bit and try again.

Maintenance Work Order Requests

You should use the following forms based on where you live on campus to have beds lowered or raised (if you did not put in a request at move-in), report maintenance issues in your room or in the building, insect sightings or suspected insects and more. This is the quickest way to report a problem. The forms are sent to the proper departments. We won't know you need assistance if you don't submit a form. 

We take any insect reports VERY seriously. Please follow these steps so we can respond quickly to your report.

  1. Fill out the proper work order.
  2. Notify your residence hall staff immediately. This can be the front desk, an RA/CA, Graduate Hall Director or Hall Director.
    • Greek Village's front desk is located at Conklin Hall.
    • University Apartments' front desk is located at Falcon Heights.
  3. Don't spread rumors. Trained staff will connect with you ASAP to identify the problem and come up with a quick solution.
