I Love It and Want to Apply

Applying for Housing

FGCU students are not required to live on campus, therefore the housing application process is separate from the admissions process.  Students must be admitted to FGCU prior to applying for housing. We encourage students to apply early, as space is limited and demand for housing is high.

Application Instructions

Student submits a Housing Application/Agreement and a $50.00 (non-refundable) application fee. Please review and retain the Terms and Conditions for your files. The Fall 2018-Spring 2019 housing priority deadline for new students is April 1, 2018

Room Assignments 

Each spring, students living on campus are given the opportunity to renew their Housing Agreement, and select their room for the fall/spring. After returning students have selected their rooms, the assignment process begins for new residents. Housing assignments are made according to a combination of factors including:

  • Availability
  • Date of application
  • Roommate requests
  • Building/room preferences
  • Special interest options

Fall room assignments are issued the last full week of May; Spring room assignments are issued in December; Summer A/C room assignments are issued in April; Summer B room assignments are issued the last week of May. There is an opportunity for students to request a room change after they receive their assignment.  This is done through completing a room transfer request form on the Housing Web Portal via Gulfline.
