Gender Inclusive Housing
​​Gender Inclusive Housing offers resident the opportunity to choose their roommates without regard to the gender of the individuals.  This program is offered in Woodward Hall.
New students who are interested in living in a gender inclusive living environment will have the option to indicate this preference on their residence hall license agreement.
During the roommate search/group formation process, students who indicated their preference to live in a gender inclusive environment, will be able to search for compatible roommates without a gender restriction.
If student do not find a compatible roommate through this process, they can be returned to the single gender search process, by sending a request in writing to
The Office of Residence Life and Housing (RLH) will identify floors and rooms within the residence halls that can accommodate a gender inclusive environment.  Due to building design limitations, gender in​clusive housing may not be available in every residence hall.

     Online Room Selection
          Students who opt to not participate in our Living-Learning Communities will select housing from our online room selection process.  Students in this process can select from any available bed in our first year residence halls.

         Online Room Selection Rules and Requirements:
  •      To Participate, student must not have selected a space during another phase of the room selection process (LLCs, gender inclusive, or quiet living)

A     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.
