Guide to Housing Selection

Gettysburg College offers a wide variety of housing options. The housing selection process is designed to help students select housing for the following year. Housing Selection consists of three Phases. There are many details to consider, therefore we ask that you read this information carefully and familiarize yourself with the processes, policies, and housing options available to you.
