Based on state and federal guidance, BGSU continues to make critical decisions to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus to safeguard our students, faculty, staff and the broader community. Residence halls are now closed for the remainder of the 2020 Spring Semester. All students should postpone their move-out until COVID-19 is no longer a threat. Once it is deemed safe to return, we will schedule an official move-out week and students who left belongings can come and retrieve their items at that time. You can learn more on our Move-out Plan webpage

New Student Housing

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.

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.
