In 2018-19, two buildings will make up the University Apartments and combine the convenience of the residence halls and the independent lifestyle of apartment living. Located one block from campus, the University Apartments house over 80 students in single rooms in three person apartments. Each air conditioned apartment features a furnished living room, kitchen and shared private bathroom.
Students | Only Returning Students can select to live in the University Apartments.
Rooms | All room options during the 2018-19 academic school year will be single rooms in a three bedroom apartment.
- Three Bedroom Apartment | Three students have their own single room and share the kitchen, living room and two bathrooms within the apartment.
Bathroom | Students are responsible for supplying their own cleaning products, shower curtain, toilet paper and cleaning the bathroom.
Laundry | 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. (Wash: $1.00 | Dry: $.75)
Community | Living in the apartments will have the private feeling like an off-campus apartment.
Returning Students who are eligible to live on campus, are eligible to live in the apartments.

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.
