Upperclassman Housing Assignments

What Are Upperclassman Housing Assignments?

As a returner, you have the opportunity to choose your own room and living experience. These spaces include variations of efficiency, one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and four-bedroom apartments. We understand that some of these spaces may be more desirable than others for many different reasons. With that said, we only have a limited quantity of certain styles. Take a look at the graphs and tables below to get an understanding of what is available.

What to Expect With No Housing Assignment

Returning Students with a Submitted Housing Application

Due to a record number of students applying to return to on campus housing, applicants should expect limited options to select from.  We understand the wait for an on-campus housing assignment may be frustrating and we would like to provide you with the following helpful information: 

  • We are no longer accepting new applications.  

  • The self-selection process remains open until June 15th. Spaces will go into the pool for selection as they become available through cancellations and room changes.  

  • Cancellations tend to follow trends, and we expect an increase in available spaces around the end of the Fall Semester and early January, and during the month of April in advance of the May 1st deadline.  

  • If you have a specific style of housing you want to live in, or group of students you want to live with, you may want to begin exploring off campus options.  

  • If your plans change and you will be living off campus, please submit a cancellation via the myHousing portal.  

GVSU Housing appreciates your interest in living on campus and your patience throughout this process. 

Returning Students without a Submitted Housing Application

In response to a record number of returning students applying for a limited number of on-campus spaces, the 2024-2025 housing application is currently closed. Students who are still developing their plans for housing are encouraged to explore off campus options.  

Housing and Residence Life staff watch trends carefully. If space is available, the application will be opened on Friday, June 14, 2024. We will notify the campus community via email at that time.

Returning/Transfer/Graduate Student Assignments

Returning, Transfer & Graduate students participate in room selection. You may self-select a specific unit based on the building, floor, unit, bedroom, and roommates that you would like. Note: roommate requests must be mutual.  After applying for housing, Phase one: Select who you would like to live with via My College Roomie.  Phase two: Select WHERE you would like to live, via the Housing Selection process in your myHousing portal.  For Fall-Winter, Phase One begins in the first week of November.  Phase Two, the selection of rooms, begins the following week in November. 

You can choose between our apartments on the Allendale Campus (CalderGrand Valley ApartmentsLaker VillageSouth C, D & E and VanSteeland), the Downtown Campus (Secchia and Winter), or a Living-Learning Community.

The room Selection Process opens in mid-November and will remain open until June 15. When you apply for Housing, you will automatically be added to the Selection Process. Please note, the process will be temporarily shut down in late November.
