Living On Campus: The Ultimate College Experience

Living on campus is one of the most exciting facets of college life. In addition to the convenience of being a quick walk away from all your classes, there’s no better way to meet new people and learn independence and responsibility. Simply put, campus living is an experience unlike any other.

At Grand Canyon University, living on campus is a very popular option, whether it’s your first year or your fourth! Freshmen housing in fall 2015 includes The Grove–a community of four brand new residence halls. These halls feature suite-style accommodations, meaning you’ll share a bedroom with one or two roommates and a living room with two or three suitemates. Acacia Hall, Ironwood Hall, and Willow Hall are open to all freshmen, while Juniper Hall has some reserved housing for students joining our Honors Institute.

If you’re looking for something closer to the heart of campus, check out Hegel Hall or Canyon Hall, which both also offer suite-style accommodations. Ocotillo Hall, built in 2014, will be used for housing overflow. To help make living on campus possible for our students, prices for room and board packages start at just $6,050 for the academic year.

Living with fellow freshmen will give you the benefit of living with your peers, surrounded by other students who are going through the same experiences and transitions as you during your first year at GCU.

At GCU, students are given a lot of freedom when picking out where they’d like to live on campus. Get the scoop on using our online housing application by browsing our handy how-to guide. The application allows you to browse available housing areas and select which room you’d like to call home. You can also request to be someone’s roommate directly through the system, allowing you to decide who brings the mini-fridge and who brings the posters.

Don’t miss out on the ultimate college experience of living on campus! You can’t reserve your residence hall until you’ve enrolled, so contact us today by clicking the Request More Information button at the top of the screen or visit our website.
