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. The fall 2020-spring 2021 housing priority deadline for new students is April 1, 2020
Each 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. Housing assignments are made according to a combination of factors including:
- Date of application
- Roommate requests
- Building/room preferences
- Special interest options
Fall room assignments are issued the last full week of May; Spring room assignments are issued in December; Summer A/C room assignments are issued in April; Summer B room assignments are issued the last week of 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 chance to request roommates by creating roommate groups in the Housing Web Portal. Only complete roommate groups are considered at the time of assignment. Students will also have access to the RoomSync app, which can help them identify potential roommates to invite into their roommate groups. While we make every attempt to keep complete roommate groups together, please keep in mind that demand for housing is high and there are times when we are unable to honor all requests.
