As an upperclass student, you will be able to select from a variety of living arrangements, including traditional halls, suites, hotel-style rooms and apartments. The housing selection process takes place each spring for the following academic year.

Each room includes extra-long, twin-sized beds (mattress size 36”x80”), desks and chairs, a closet or wardrobe, and chest of drawers. Each residence hall or apartment is also equipped with a laundry room featuring coin-free washers and dryers. Specific features for each building can be found below.

Off Campus Living for Commuter Students

Bridgewater is a residential college, so most of our students live on campus. That’s because we believe that students who live, study, work and play together on campus make connections that extend learning beyond the classroom. That’s an important part of a liberal arts education.

We think it will be rewarding and fun for you to experience living in a residence hall or apartment on campus. But we understand that sometimes there are circumstances that make it more desirable or necessary to live off campus.

You may live off campus if you have a letter of support from your parent or legal guardian and meet one of these conditions:

  • You live in Augusta, Highland, Page, Rockingham or Shenandoah County with your parents or legal guardians. The registrar’s office will verify this address and bill you for on-campus housing costs if you are found to be living somewhere else.
  • You are at least 23 years old. The registrar’s office will verify your age.
  • You are a current or former member of the armed forces. Please provide a copy of your service record or discharge papers with the application.
  • You are married or you are a custodial parent. Please provide a copy of your marriage license or completed tax forms.
  • You are enrolled as a part-time student (taking fewer than 12 credit hours per semester).
  • You are a fifth-year senior who has lived on campus for eight semesters at Bridgewater College (or the equivalent with transfer credits).
  • If you have a physical or mental health disability, you may request a medical exception for severe conditions that may impact your living on campus. You may qualify for special on-campus accommodations or be given an exemption to live off campusPlease contact the Director of Academic Support and Disability Services for more information or to access the forms.

You may access the request to live off campus form from MyBC under Off Campus Housing Application.

You are strongly discouraged from signing a lease for an off-campus rental property until you have received written approval from the Director of Residential and Community Life or the housing accommodation review board. If you have not been approved to live off campus and sign a lease prematurely, you will be responsible for paying on-campus room and board fees, as well as your off-campus rent.
