Residence Life and Housing Operations

Welcome home, Lope! Living on campus provides you with both convenience and the opportunity to enjoy a traditional student experience.

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.
