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 semesters lived on campus 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 your intent 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: Choose to Assign Yourself or have Housing Assign You

After selecting on-campus, you can choose from one of our four “Selection Tracks.” You can choose to renew your room space and live in the exact same spot next year; you can choose to select a room space and pick your own room; you can select for University Housing to assign you to a room; you can select to be part of an RA group (please note this is only if an RA has requested to live with you).


Step 4: 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. Not sure who you want to live with? Search by different profile questions to find other students who match your lifestyle. They will need to accept your request in order to be paired together.

Step 5: Choose Your Housing Location During the Assigned Timeslot

  • Timeslots are assigned to students based on your individual accumulated credits and semesters lived on-campus. NOTE: This process has changed from previous years. We are no longer assigning timeslots based on a roommate groups average credits.
  • Timeslots will be e-mailed to students prior to selection week in March or April.
  • During your assigned timeslot, 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, Brandt and Newlin Hall. NOTE: Your group size does not need to match the location size in order to select that living location. For example, your group of 3 may select a location that fits 4 people. However, that spot is available for another student to select.
  • If you do not have a group, you may still assign yourself to any available open spot once your timeslot opens.

Step 6: Choose a Meal Plan

You can 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. After completing this form, you will be able to return to this page and change your meal plan up until the end of the first week of fall semester. 


Step 7: Confirmation

  • If you choose the "I want University Housing to Assign me a Placement" option in your application, 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.
  • 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 live in a different on-campus location (aside from your assigned location), in late June, Room Re-Selection will be open, and any rooms still vacant will be open for you to select to move to.
