Applying for Housing
FGCU students are not required to live on campus, so the housing application process is separate from the admissions process. You must be admitted to FGCU prior to applying for housing. Apply early —space is limited and demand for housing is high.
Submit a Housing Application/Agreement and a $50.00 (non-refundable) application fee. Review and retain the Terms and Conditions for your files.
Room AssignmentsEach spring, students living on campus are given the opportunity to renew their Housing Agreement and select their room for the following fall/spring. After returning students have selected their rooms, the assignment process begins for new residents. New students will be given an opportunity to select their own room in May if they have a completed application and have registered for orientation. Students that do not participate in the self-selection period will be administratively assigned according to a combination of factors including:
- Date of application
- Building/room preferences
- Living Learning Communities
Fall room assignments are initially issued in May and continue to be made through August check-in; Spring room assignments are issued in December; Summer A/C room assignments are issued in April; Summer B room assignments are issued in May. Students can request a room change after they receive their assignment; this is done by submitting a room transfer request form on the Housing Web Portal via Gulfline.
Applicants have the ability to get assigned with desired roommates by using a roommate PIN created on the housing application. Specific instructions regarding this process will be sent to Eagle email accounts the month prior to room selection. Students will also have access to the RoomSync app, which can help them identify potential roommates. Roommate requests will not be considered for students that are administratively assigned.
