NEW & TRANSFER STUDENT HOUSING SELECTION

After a future student has been admitted into BGSU, the next step is completing the housing application and paying the $200 initial housing payment.

The housing application opened on Nov. 13 and the DAY a student pays the initial housing payment will determine their room selection time - not based on the time they pay.
