GCU offers a variety of housing options for new and returning students. Our suite-style residence halls and apartments offer all the amenities you need to make GCU your home away from home. All students must meet the Housing Eligibility Requirements to live on campus. Browse through our housing options to learn more!
The housing selection processes for new and returning students occurs during two different time periods based on the needs of each group. Returning students select housing during the spring term of the academic year, allowing time to understand campus housing and develop an idea of where and with whom they might like to live during the next academic year.
GCU hopes that all students who desire to live in on-campus housing are able to do so. GCU strives to intentionally maintain viable options for all students. In the event that returning students are unable to choose a bed on campus due to capacity, GCU has created contingency plans to open further housing options as needed.
GCU is committed to keeping housing costs low. Housing and meal plan costs are dependent on the accommodations you seek and the type of meal plan you select. Explore our room and board rates to find a plan that fits your needs and budget.
