Housing Department

The decision to pursue a seminary education is an important one, and the Housing Office is available and committed to assist you with your housing needs and what for many of you will be a transition to a new climate.

Our Mission

The role of the Housing Office is to support the mission of the Seminary through the provision of student housing. To this end we seek to create a diverse, safe and supportive living environment, which is both affordable and of high quality, and to provide a Christ-centered community which enables students to grow spiritually, physically, interpersonally and academically.

Apartments

There are 211 apartments available on campus. The apartments (studio, one, two and three bedrooms in six campus buildings) are unfurnished. Each apartment is equipped with a stove, refrigerator and a disposal. (Apartments are available for occupancy for new students on June 15 for Summer/ Fall and January 15 for Spring, based on availability.) Apartment Applications can be completed electronically by clicking here. 

 

Dormitories

There are six dormitories on campus - four men's and two women's. Dormitory rooms for single students include large and small single rooms and double rooms. All dormitory residents are required to participate in the Board Plan. Dormitory Applications can be completed electronically by clicking here.

Eligibility

Full - time students enrolled in a degree program must take at least seven courses (21 credit hours) towards their degree per lease year (i.e. from June 1 through May 31; Summer I through Spring) to be eligible for on-campus housing. Of these seven courses, at least one must be taken in the fall and spring semesters, respectively.

New students who are on special scholarship will be given assignment priority for on-campus housing. Housing is only available on the Hamilton Campus.

Off Campus Housing

Due to the increased demand for on-campus housing, new students are encouraged to consider the possibility of off-campus housing options. The Housing Office continually experiences the joy of seeing God's faithfulness in meeting the needs of students through His provision of housing both on and off-campus. The Housing Office maintains a list of off-campus rental opportunities in the area and is ready to assist in any way possible. Once a student has matriculated, the off-campus housing list can be accessed via CAMS Student Portal. To login, use just the username of your GCTS email address, which is typically the first letter of your first name and your last name. (e.g. John Doe’s username would be “jdoe”). Your password is your Student ID# (Unless you have changed it.) Once you complete the login, click on the Housing Opportunities link.

If you have an apartment, home, roommate request, or live-in situation available in the area, and would like to have your listing added to the GCTS off-campus housing website, click here to access the Off Campus Housing Request Form. Please complete and submit this form to houserep@gordonconwell.edu.
