Another thing GCU students love about their school is the on-campus housing options. GCU has a number of housing options for on-campus students. Whether they’re living in a dorm or an apartment, many students feel right at home living amongst their peers in the spacious bedrooms and common areas.

Campus Activities

From sporting events to outdoor recreation and everything in between, students love the activities available on campus. There really is something for everyone at GCU. If you love sports, check out GCU’s Intramural sports teams, or check out one of GCU’s legendary basketball games in the GCU Arena.
