Welcome home, Lope! Living on campus provides you with both convenience and the opportunity to enjoy a traditional student experience. Our goal in the Office of Residence Life is to provide safe, comfortable space for you to live. Grand Canyon University (GCU) offers suite-style student housing accommodations in all of our residence halls for both freshmen and upperclassmen.

Student Housing Selection

The housing selection process varies depending on if you are a new or returning student.

If you are a new student, you will apply for student housing after enrolling at GCU and registering for classes. GCU begins enrolling new students up to two terms prior to their start date.

Returning students select housing in the spring term of the academic year. This allows you time to understand campus housing and develop an idea of with whom and where you might like to live during the next academic year.

Housing Accommodations Through Disability Services

GCU may be able to accommodate specific housing requests made through Student Disability Services. If you require specific accommodations, contact Student Disability Services to find out more about our policies.

Summer Housing

If you are taking classes or working on campus during the summer, living on campus is the ultimate convenience. Summer housing varies each year, but is open to students who are attending classes on campus or online, or working on campus during the summer months.

Student Housing Options

For the 2018-19 school year, we offer on-campus student housing options for incoming, returning and transfer students. GCU incoming student-only housing gives you the benefit of living with peers going through the same first-year experiences as you. Returning student housing is for students who will have sophomore, junior or senior standing.
