Step 1: Start Your Application

Housing Selection Application


Step 2: On- or Off-Campus Intent?

We need to know where you are planning on living next year. Fill out what you know. You can always come back and make edits to your form.

If you are not eligible due to age or credits to live off-campus you will not have an option to choose off-campus. If you have questions or want to submit a waiver you may contact housing@georgefox.edu. If you change to off-campus after you have a confirmed housing placement you will be charged a $75 fine. After June 1 this fine goes up to $150.


Step 3: Select Meal Plan

Note that you can you change your meal plan up until one week after the semester begins. After your current semester credits have been applied to your accumulative credit total (late May or early June), you will have more options available to you.  Even after completing this form, you will be able to return to this page and change your meal plan selection at a later date. 


Step 4: Pay Student Housing Application Fee

This application fee is $150 and guarantees you a spot in on-campus housing. You must pay this fee before you can accept or invite roommates.


Step 5: Request Roommates

There are two ways to search for/request roommates:

  1. Do you know who you want to live with? Search by their George Fox email address and invite each person you want to live with. They will each need to accept this request.
  2. Aren’t sure who you want to live with?
    • Search for possible roommate matches using profile questions. You will need to click on the check box next to each question you want to use in your search.
    • Post on the Housing Facebook page (GFU Housing) with your interest in finding a roommate and see if anyone contacts you.

Note: Do not use the RA Roommate Group page unless you are joining an RA group you were assigned.


Step 6: Groups Select Rooms (Rooms required to fill)

  • Groups will be e-mailed their selection timeslot during Spring Break. Timeslots are assigned based on average group academic credits.
  • Groups will be assigned time slots.  If your group is unable to fill a location, your group can re-group to a different size.
  • Once your time slot opens, one person from your group can go into the “Rooms” page in the Housing and Meal Plan Intent form to reserve a room/beds for your group members in on-campus apartments, houses, or Brandt Hall. NOTE: Groups will only be able to select and fill a space that they fit into. 

Step 7: Individuals fill out application

  • Individuals going through the process can fill out the application prior to March 23.
  • University Housing will assign individuals to open spots between April and mid-July.  The timeframe can take a bit longer so that our office is able to find the best spot for you.

Step 8: Confirmation

Check the “Status” page in the Housing and Meal Plan Intent form to see if your room or off-campus status has been confirmed. If you would like to be added to a waitlist for a different on-campus location (aside from your assigned location), that will be available to you.
