There is an application that will open up in December and there will be a three step process:
- Step 1: You must complete the Continuing Student Housing Application through your MyBGSU Housing account and submit your initial $200 payment.
- Step 2: Complete your apartment application, when it opens.
- Step 3: If you are selected to have an apartment, you will come up to the Office of Residence Life during a specific week to select your apartment. You will be provided a specific day and time to make your selection.
You will receive notification in early February, priror to returning student selection, regarding your apartment application status. If you are selected, you will also receive additional information about how to select your apartment.

The apartments are furnished with basic furnishings, which include a twin bed and dresser for each occupant, a living set (one couch, two chairs, two end tables, two lamps, and a coffee table), and a dinette set. The kitchens are equipped with a stove, refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher. All furnishing must remain in the apartment and cannot be removed by the occupant.
You will receive a parking pass for the apartment complex that is included in the fee for your apartment. To park on campus, you will need to follow the same process as other students who request a parking pass. You will be able to obtain a commuter parking pass from Parking Services.
Since these apartments are University-sponsored, you will be billed through your Bursar Account, similar to how residence halls are billed.
Your room rate includes all utilities, so you will not receive a separate bill.
Laundry is done in the on-site community laundry facility. Laundry is not built into Apartment Student Fees, so there will be a cost associated with doing laundry.
If you live in the apartments you are not required to have a meal plan. If you move from the apartments to a Residence Hall or the Greek Village, you will be required to select a meal plan at the time of your move.
There will be university staff, similar to the residence hall structure, who will provide oversight and supervision in the apartments. The BGSU Police Department will work closely with the City of Bowling Green police department to provide safety and security.
