Housing Rules and Regulations

Entering Students – Mandatory On-Campus Housing Criteria

All entering undergraduate BS or BA, premedical and preveterinary medical students are required to live on campus for their first year.* Charter Foundation Program (CFP) students are required to live on campus for the duration of their program.

All entering medical (Grenada), veterinary, and graduate students are required to live on campus for the first term and have the option to apply for campus housing for the following term.* Students who apply for housing for their first term only will enter a housing lottery in the fall if they wish to live on campus for their second term.

KBTGSP students are required to live in campus housing for both terms of the one year program and will have the opportunity to live in campus housing when they come to Grenada for Term 3/4.

* Residents of Grenada are exempt from this requirement.

Important Factors to Remember About Housing

  • You are eligible to seek off-campus housing if you have children and/or pets; or if you received special permission through the Housing Office.
  • The Housing Office reserves the right to change or modify housing assignments and to fill housing vacancies as necessary. Room and roommate assignments are also subject to change.
  • While the Housing Office does its best to accommodate special requests, there is no guarantee that notification of a specific assignment prior to arrival on campus will be honored.
  • Enrolled students will not be released from housing contracts once the term has commenced. Students who have a housing contract, whether for one or two terms, are obligated to pay the stated charges and fees and are not eligible for a refund if they cancel housing when they are registered for classes. For further information students should refer to the SGU Housing Cancellation Policy.

Housing In Subsequent Terms

Students who live on campus for the first term of their program are given the opportunity to apply for housing and select their rooms and room/suite mates for the subsequent term within a specified time frame. Those who do not apply within the time frame will be required to go through the lottery process.

After the first year, continuing students who wish to remain on campus must enter the housing lottery.* (Students promoted into the MD or DVM do not participate in the lottery and will live in Freshman MD or DVM housing for the first term.)

The housing lottery is held in October for the Spring semester and again in March for the Fall semester. Students who wish to apply for housing through the lottery will be expected to submit an application through the continuing student portal.  Once the lottery application deadline is closed, the lottery is run and the winners are instructed to log into the portal at their designated time slot to sign their contract and make their room and room/suite mate selections.

Students desiring off-campus housing can visit the Housing site for the listing of recommended housing. The University reserves the right to require students to live on-campus for the full duration of their stay in Grenada.

Accessing The Housing Portal

All incoming students must fill out a housing application whether they plan to live on-campus or off. To login to the housing housing portal use the same credentials you use to access MySGU and Student Self Service. If the portal is at maximum capacity when you attempt to log in, you may be prompted to try back at another time.

Housing Application

During the application process you will have the opportunity to review your personal details, make special requests for medical accommodation or permission to live off-campus, review and sign your housing contract, create a profile to help you match with a roommate, create a web profile with a description about yourself that others can view in a roommate search, make a roommate request and, in some instances, indicate your room preference (options are limited and depend upon your program).

The new student housing application will be available in mid-May for students entering in the Fall term and in mid-October for students entering in the Spring term. All deposited students will be notified by email when they can access the portal to fill out their housing application.

Dormitory move-in and move-out dates for the Grenada campus can be viewed here.

If you have questions or problems during the housing process, please contact FreshmanHousing@sgu.edu

Lottery Procedures for Upperclass Students Who Wish to Live on Campus:

  • Students who wish to participate in the lottery for on-campus housing will be instructed to first submit a housing application through the Continuing Student Housing Portal.
  • Those who submit their application by the stated deadline will then be informed of their assigned room selection time slots.
  • Students will be instructed to log into the portal at their designated time slot to sign their contract and make their room and room/suite mate selections.
  • The room/suite mate with the earliest time slot may assign spaces within the same room or suite to the members of his/her room/suite group.
  • Students whose roommates do not assign rooms to them will be able to choose their own rooms during their time slots.

Housing During Clinical Years (MD and DVM)

Housing opportunities vary at different clinical centers, affiliated hospitals, and veterinary clinical locations. In all cases, during the medical and veterinary clinical years, housing is the responsibility of the student. In the United Kingdom, some affiliated hospitals provide single accommodations for students, but the student is responsible for the cost of these accommodations.
