We realize you may have lots of questions. We are here to help. Our FAQ answers many of the questions you may have when considering GBC for your student housing needs. Please review the answers and if they still do not address your question, please feel to contact Stacie Combs,

When will I receive my semester assignment?

Confirmation of room assignments is usually mailed one month before the semester begins.


How are roommates assigned?

Preferences for specific roommates are honored whenever possible; each student must request the other on the student housing agreement form. Assignments are made on a first come, first served basis. No room assignments are made on the basis of race, religion, color or creed.


Is there a cleaning deposit?

Yes. Your deposit must be submitted when you turn in your student housing agreement. Griswold Hall has a $250 deposit. Resident Suites have a $350 deposit, and Married/Family Apartments have a $500 deposit. Your deposit will be refunded according to the license agreement rules that you signed.


Can I remain in student housing between semesters? Is there a charge for this?

Yes! You may remain in the resident suites and Griswold Hall between fall and spring semesters for an additional $100. Additionally, students may arrange to stay in the resident suites during summer sessions. Rates are calculated on a pro-rated basis. Students residing in married/family housing apartments may choose to stay through the summer if they sign a letter of intent to register for the subsequent fall semester. They will continue to pay rent on a monthly basis.


When is student housing available?

Resident suites are available for occupancy one week before the start of classes each semester. Students will be notified of their move-in date and room assignment one month before he semester begins. Students who need special arrangements may contact the Housing Coordinator.


Are the resident suites and Griswold Hall rooms co-ed?

No. The residence suites are designated for women or for men.
