GCU's Department of Housing Operations manages the housing reservations and logistical needs of both the new and returning residential community on campus. Housing Operations oversees the planning of living area allocation and growth, the creation and maintenance of the online housing selection processes, as well as the communication and accountability of housing policies and deadlines.

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.

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.

GCU is committed to keeping housing costs low for students. Housing and meal plan costs are dependent on the accommodations you seek and the type of meal plan you select. Explore our housing and meal costs to learn more.

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.
