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 eligible 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 Guaranteed, this means you will not be able to select on-campus housing unless:
- You fill out the Request to Live On Campus Form (closed on Nov. 17, 2017) -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 resources for you to review.
Please note: The request form was only be available through Nov. 17, 2017. The Housing Waitlist Form is now available. Filling out the Waitlist Form does not guarantee 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.
