Living on campus is an important part of your overall success as a BGSU student. It has been proven that students who live on campus have a higher GPA – and persistence towards graduation – faster than their peers who live off campus. Because of this, Bowling Green State University’s Board of Trustees has set a Residency Requirement that states a student must live on campus their first two years. The Residency Requirement is enforced unless one or more of the exemption criteria are met -or- the student has an approved housing appeal.
Every Residence Hall at BGSU is Co-ed, meaning both males and females live in each building. The way the males and females are separated is based on what type of rooms are offered in the building.
Co-ed by Wing or Floor | Traditional Room layouts are Co-ed by wing meaning that males are located down one section of the floor and females are located down the other section of the floor. The same buildings may also have male and female rooms separated by floor.
Co-ed Throughout the Building | Suite Style and In-room Bathroom Rooms are Co-ed on each floor and wing. A mix of male and female rooms are spread-out throughout the entire building.
There are advantages of each type of room layout. You have to find what works best for you. Some students assume they would prefer a Suite-Style room and end up preferring a Traditional Room. It just depends on your personality and what type of college experience you want to have.
Traditional | When someone says the college experience they are typically talking about a Traditional Room set up. Hall-style, standard rooms that are typically shared with one roommate. Students share the community bathroom that is equipped with multiple showers, sinks and toilets to choose from and the University cleans/maintains them on a regular basis.
In-room Bathroom | The easiest way to explain this option is to compare it to a hotel room. Standard rooms that are typically shared with one roommate and the bathroom is located inside the room. Students are responsible for supplying their own cleaning products, shower curtain, toilet paper and cleaning the bathroom.
Suite-style | Two Double Rooms or three Single Rooms that are grouped together by a common area. The suitemates share the common area which is typically described as a small "living room" and one or two bathroom(s). Students are responsible for supplying their own cleaning products, shower curtain, toilet paper and cleaning the bathroom.
