Application Process

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.

Application Instructions

Submit a Housing Application/Agreement and a $50 (non-refundable) application fee. Review and retain the Terms and Conditions for your files.

Room Assignments 

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. 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:
  • Availability

  • 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 late April.
