How To Apply

Additional Information

Students MUST be admitted to the university prior to applying for housing. Applications for housing will not be accepted from non-admitted students.

Students are encouraged to apply early for on-campus housing because demand is high and space is limited.

The housing application must include the University ID (UIN) number issued by Admissions in order for it to be processed.

Payment Options

There's more than one way to pay for housing.
Review the various payment options available.

FGCU students are not required to live on campus; therefore the application process is separate from the admissions application. Students may NOT apply for housing prior to being admitted to FGCU. In order to be considered for on-campus housing, students are required to submit a Housing Agreement for the period requested and include a $50.00 (non-refundable) application fee. The housing application must include the University ID number issued by the Admissions Office in order for it to be processed.

Students are encouraged to apply early for on-campus housing because demand is high and space is limited. It is important to note that submitting a Housing Agreement does not guarantee a space in on-campus housing, room type, specific room or building, living options or roommate requests. Students cannot be assigned a space prior to being admitted to the university.

Application Process

  • Student submits a Housing Application/Agreement and a $50.00 (non-refundable) application fee. Please review and retain the Terms and Conditions for your files. The Fall 2017-Spring 2018 housing priority deadline for new students is April 1, 2017. Housing Agreements for Fall 2017 / Spring 2018 become available in early October.
