Living and Eating

Welcome to Your New Home

Guilford cares deeply about you and your campus experience. Our small yet connected community hosts a range of housing and dining options. We strive to have an inclusive, comfortable, and engaging atmosphere that fosters academic, social, and personal growth. We have integrated our Core Values of community and sustainability in the way we do business.

We are a residential campus, which means all traditional students under the age of 23 must live on campus. The many advantages of living on campus include being close to classes and academic resources with 24/7 access to the heart of campus life. And guess what? Those who live on campus often have higher GPAs.

We have a diversity of housing options, including traditional residence halls and campus apartments. All residential students are required to have one of the College’s meal plans. Explore the links below to learn more about our housing and dining options.
