FGCU On-Campus Housing Opens Its Doors Students Begin Moving in for Fall Semester
8/22/2001

Florida Gulf Coast University will open its residence halls tomorrow, Thursday, Aug. 23 for FGCU students from all over the country to begin moving in.

“North Lake Village,” as collective on-campus housing is called, provides lake-front apartment-style housing. Built in phases over the last four years, FGCU will open Phase III this fall. FGCU’s on-campus housing has consistently been one of the top reasons students attend FGCU. The village includes amenities such as a swimming pool, tiki hut, beach volleyball, beach chairs, water skiing, kayaking and motor boating. FGCU’s student housing, located next to the University’s intramural fields, even houses “smart” laundry facilities, which conveniently allows students to check for an available washer or dryer without ever leaving their rooms.

As of today, the number of students planning to live on-campus – and making an economic impact on the Southwest Florida community – is about 740. Based upon room configurations, the university can only accommodate about 40 to 60 more students. The University has various campus activities planned to welcome students to the new semester.
