Housing Eligibility Status
If you are a Returning Student, knowing your Housing Status is the first - and most important step - of your Housing Selection Process. The tabs below will start you on your housing selection journey.
If you have any questions, please contact us. We are happy to help.
Required Housing Selection Process
Opens December 1, 2017 | If you are required to live on campus next Academic School Year, please follow the Returning Student Housing Selection Process.
If you have been notified that you are required to live on campus, then you have not met the BGSU Residency Requirement. The Residency Requirement Policy states a student must live on campus their first two years and will be enforced unless one or more of the exemption criteria are met -or- the student has an approved housing appeal. We encourage you to learn more about this policy.
Eligible for Housing Selection Process
Opens December 1, 2017 | If your Housing Status is
Eligible, this means you are eligble but may not be
required to live on campus. If you wish to live on campus
during the next Academic School Year, follow the Returning Student
Housing Selection Process.
Please note: You must complete your housing application prior to February 1, 2018 in order to receive a room and Housing Selection Time.
Select Off-Campus Housing
If your Housing Status is Not Gauranteed, this means you will not be able to select on-campus housing unless:
- You fill out the Request to Live On Campus Form -and-
- You receive official approval from the
Office of Residence Life.
There is no guarantee you will receive approval if you choose to fill out the form and you are strongly encouraged to secure off-campus housing. The Off-Campus Student Services office has many available reasources for you to review and we encourage you to attend the Off-Campus Housing Fair held on November 15.
If you decide you would like to fill out the Request to Live On Campus Form, you can learn more about the process and access the form here:
Please note: The request form will only be available
through Nov. 17, 2017. After this date, a Housing Waitlist Form will
be available. Filling out the Waitlist Form does not guarantee you
housing and students on the waitlist may not find out if they will be
assigned housing until August 2018. Students who are not guaranteed
housing are strongly encouraged to secure off-campus housing.
