Residential Education and Housing

Because Guilford College is a residential campus that values the community of students in a residential setting, traditional students under the age of 23 are required to live on campus and have a meal plan with our dining services. Traditional students desiring to live off campus may apply for permission, but approval is not guaranteed. There are no opportunities for married students or CCE students to live on campus. During fall and spring breaks, Thanksgiving, and winter break, the residence halls are officially closed and meal plans are inactive. Students may apply with Residential Education & Housing to remain in the residence halls during the breaks with the exception of winter break when all students must vacate the halls.
