Additional Occupancy
At times the demand for housing at Bridgewater State University exceeds the number of spaces available for resident students.  In an effort to provide as many students as possible the opportunity to live on campus, the University will take a number of designed double rooms and add a third bed on a temporary basis.  As space becomes available, students will be offered the opportunity to move out into a permanent space.   Experience has shown that a significant number of student scheduled to live in the residence halls either never show up or withdraw after the semester begins.   
Students in these rooms will receive a 20% rebate on their housing charges for the time that they were living in a temporary additional occupancy room.  At the very latest this room set up will remain until the end of the fall semester.  For questions about additional occupancy, check out the additional occupancy program section HERE​
Students who deposit later in our process will be placed into our Additional Occupancy Room Selection.​
​Tips and Hints
        1. Pay attention​ to Deadlines. Reminder emails will be sent regarding important dates.
        2. Always have a backup plan.  Don't set your mind to one building or room configuration.  Plan multiple options ahead of selection.
        3. Make sure that your group is fully formed prior to selection.
        4. ALL ROOM SELECTIONS ARE FINAL!!! Housing assignments cannot be altered until all student have had an opportunity to select.
