Housing Information

Housing Selection Process

Housing Selection occurs annually in May/June for incoming students who plan to live on campus. All students need to fill out the application, even if living off-campus.

To get to the housing and meal plan intent portal:

  • Log into MyGeorgeFoxUnder "Student Resources," click on "Housing and Meal Plan Intent."
  • Log in to the housing and meal plan portal with your George Fox username and password.
  • Once you are logged in to the portal, click on "Housing Intent" and select your academic term.
  • Follow the steps in the Housing Intent process. Remember to click "Save & Continue" at the bottom of each page.
  • Fill in the information you know. You may go back and edit your responses.

The "Status" step in the Housing and Meal Plan Intent portal will always have your most up-to-date housing information. Once your roommate and housing assignment is made, it will be included there.

If you are unsure of your login or password to MyGeorgeFox, contact the Service Desk by calling 503-554-2569 or emailing servicedesk@georgefox.edu.

Step 1: Start your application

Housing Selection Application


Step 2: Choose to assign yourself or have housing assign you

You can choose from one of two “Selection Tracks.” You can choose to select a room space and pick your own room, or you can select for University Housing to assign you to a room. Please note that you can only choose to pick your own room if you deposited to George Fox before March 15th.


Step 3: Choose your roommate or have University Housing assign you one

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.

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


Step 4: Choose Locations during Housing Selection

If you deposited to George Fox before March 15th, you have the chance to select your own room! You will receive a timeslot for when you can log in and select a room for you and your roommate (if applicable).

  • Timeslots are assigned to students based on enrollment deposit date. The earlier you make your deposit to George Fox University, the sooner you will be able to select your housing!
  • Timeslots will be e-mailed to students prior to selection week in May.
  • 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 dorms and suites. NOTE: Your group size does not need to match the location size in order to select that living location. For example, your group of 2 may select a location that fits 4 people. However, those spots are available for other students to select.
  • If you do not have a group, you may still assign yourself to any available open spot once your timeslot opens.

Step 5: Select a meal plan

Choose the 20 Meal Plan for next year. If you have any transfer credits, additional meal plan options may be available to you.


Step 6: Confirmation

Check the “Status” page in the Housing and Meal Plan Intent form to see if your room has been confirmed. After Housing Selection, in late June, Room Re-Selection will be open, and any rooms still vacant will be open for you to select to move to.
