Living and Eating

Welcome to Your New Home

Guilford cares deeply about you and your entire 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. (Check out our MicroFridge rental and linen programs.) 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 residence halls, theme houses (based on special interests like international culture) and campus apartments. All residential students are required to have one of the College’s meal plans. Residential students who do not choose a meal plan will be assigned the Quaker 19 meal plan by default. Explore the links below to learn more about our housing and dining options.
