Welcome to Student Affairs. Our goal is to provide you with resources across campus that help enrich both the student experience and campus life here at Grand Canyon University (GCU). Our department is home to nine offices on campus, each of which plays a key role in providing you with everything you need to find academic success while enjoying the comforts of our campus community.
We also host Welcome Week, one of our biggest events of the year! During Welcome Week, we kick off the start of the school year with events on campus that help welcome all of students, new and returning, to campus.
We hope we can provide you with everything you need to immerse yourself in Lope Life and enjoy a full campus experience!
The Office of Welcome Programs is here to make sure you have everything you to need to transition to life in Lope Country. We host New Student Orientation, Welcome Week, Spring Welcome and Family Weekend where you can get connected to our campus life and community. Our student leaders are "Welcome Pros," and they work beyond these events to help you get connected and make friends at GCU. We are also home to Parent and Family Programs, and we're glad to support our families through the Parent Council, our monthly e-newsletter, Parent Connection Facebook page and more.

Welcome to Lope Country!
The Office of Residence Life not only handles the logistics of campus housing across the university, but is also responsible for residence hall programming and staffing. Explore our suite-style residence halls to learn more about living on GCU's campus.
At GCU, we believe having the opportunity to explore what it looks like to follow God is critical, and college is a key time when students engage in this process. The Department of Spiritual Life is here to support you by providing spiritual formation opportunities during your time on campus.
What makes Lope Life so great? The Office of Student Engagement is here to help you find out! From planning exciting events to helping you get involved in clubs and intramurals, our office is committed to enhancing the campus experience.
We also understand that college can be a difficult transition and time for some. Take advantage of the Office of Student Care which offers free one-on-one and group counseling services to help in whatever your experience or situation may be.
Career Resources is here to help you prepare to make the transition from student life to a career. We offer online resource tools, workshops, student employment opportunities, companies on campus events and much more.
