First-Year Housing Assignments

What Are First-Year Housing Assignments?

First-year students are eligible to select Cluster StyleSuite StyleTraditional Style1 Bedroom Apartment Style2 Bedroom Apartment Style, 1 Bedroom/1 Person Apartment, 2 Bedroom/2 Person Apartment, 4 Bedroom/ 4 Person Apartment, and/or a Living-Learning Community as housing preferences on their Applications. You have the choice of living on the Allendale or Robert C. Pew Grand Rapids campuses. You will not be assigned housing until you have submitted your preferences to your application. We highly recommend that you select at least three housing style preferences. Students that don't list a housing preference will be placed in traditional-style housing.

You will be hand-placed by housing staff for your first year and will receive your housing assignment in late June via your GVSU student email. 

First-year students applying by May 1 are guaranteed an on-campus housing placement. Assignments are made in application date order and based on space availability.

Traditional Style is the default preference for all incoming freshmen that do not indicate a housing style preference.
