For New Students:
When will new students receive their housing assignments and information?
Housing assignments will be made in late June and mailed out in early July.
Can I request a roommate?
Yes. Simply write their name in the requested roommate space on your housing card and have them do the same.
Can I request a specific residence hall?
You may request a specific hall, but there is not a guarantee you will receive your preference. Assignments are made for new students based on deposit date and available space.
I am a new transfer student, how will I be assigned to housing?
You will be placed in housing with either another new transfer or a returning student roommate. Transfers are not assigned freshman roommates unless they specifically request it. If you will be either a junior or 20 years old by Sept. 1 and you would like to live in an apartment on campus, please email the Director of Housing to submit a request for an apartment placement.
For Returning Students:
ON CAMPUS HOUSING
We are currently updating our on campus housing process for returning students. New information will be posted by March 1, 2014.
Can I live off-campus?
Gordon College requires all full-time students to live on-campus. We do realize that living on campus is not possible for all students due to various life circumstances. To address these specific needs, students who are 23 or older, married, or living at home are automatically approved as commuters. Other students who wish to commute must submit an Off-Campus Housing Application to the Director of Housing. No student should commit to a lease before being approved. Gordon College is not responsible for leases signed or money paid before being approved by the Director of Housing. Once approved to live off-campus, students may not participate in any other part of the housing process.
Will I be approved if I don't meet the automatic criteria?
Most likely. It is anticipated that on-campus housing will be very full for the fall, so a large number of non-automatic commuters will be approved.
Do I have to know exactly where I will be living off-campus?
No. In fact, you should not sign a lease until after you are approved to live off-campus. If you are approved, you are required to submit your off-campus address to CSD by September 15, 2014.
If I am applying to live off-campus, do I need to pay a housing deposit?
If you do not meet the automatic approval criteria you are required to pay a housing deposit so that you will be eligible for on-campus housing in the event your off-campus application is not approved. If you are approved as a commuter, your deposit will be refunded.
