The Office of Housing Operations at Grand Canyon University manages the housing reservations and logistical needs of both the incoming and returning residential community on campus. The planning of living area allocation and growth, creation/maintenance of online housing selection processes and communication of/accountability to housing policies and deadlines are all aspects Housing Operations oversees.
It is the goal of Housing Operations to provide student centric, premier customer service by keeping students informed of housing opportunities and responsibilities and offering an efficient, intuitive housing selection process. Housing Operations seeks to empower and develop students to navigate housing needs and priorities. Striving for continual improvement of student service, processes and policies is paramount to Housing Operations.

Withdrawal From Housing
If you need to withdraw from GCU Housing before the end of your Housing Contract, you will need to fill out the Housing Withdrawal form. The form
can be found by logging into your housing portal and clicking on "Forms". Review the 2019-20 Reimbursement Fee Schedule and the
2019-20 Meal Plan Cancellation Schedule for more information.
The housing selection processes for new and returning students occur during two different time periods based on the needs of each group. Returning students select housing in the spring term of the academic year. This allows you time to understand campus housing and develop an idea of with whom and where you might like to live during the next academic year.
GCU hopes that all students who desire on-campus housing are able to choose a housing reservation on campus. GCU strives to intentionally maintain viable options for all students. In the event that housing selection comes to a point where returning students are unable to choose a bed on campus due to capacity, GCU has created contingency plans to open further housing options if needed.
