- All rooms/apartments MUST be filled to capacity during the online housing selection process. This means that if you want to select a double room, you must have a roommate in order to select a double room.
- Residential & First-Year Programs will notify you if a vacancy should occur prior to July 1 to discuss the potential options to fill the vacancy. We strongly encourage roommates and groups to be responsible for maintaining communication among each other regarding changes to their room/apartment occupancy over the summer.
- If a vacancy occurs in a room or apartment after July 1, the Office of Residential & First-Year Programs may use our discretion to assign you a new roommate without prior notification.
To help students review housing options, floor plans for all residence halls are available online through CNAV/MyPlace/MyHousing/Housing Self-Service.
Also, room amenity information is available on the Office of Residential & First-Year Programs website. This information includes availability of gender-neutral bathrooms within residential properties.
The vast majority of singles on campus are located within college houses, suites, and apartments. We have a very limited number of “stand-alone singles” (e.g. singles that are located in Musselman Hall, Lahm Hall, or Baughman Hall) that can be selected through the online housing selection process. The “stand-alone” singles that we do have are usually selected early in the online housing selection process. Students pursuing this option should have alternative housing options in mind in case they are unable to acquire a single room. A wait list is maintained in the Office of Residential & First-Year Programs for single rooms, but there is no guarantee that singles will become available.
During the 2020-2021 housing selection process, students may choose to live in gender-neutral housing. This policy allows two or more students to share a multiple-occupancy bedroom, suite, or apartment regardless of students’ sex or gender. Gender-neutral housing is not intended for romantic couples. Rather, it provides options for a variety of students: those who feel uncomfortable rooming with members of the same sex, transgender students in the process of discovering their gender identity, students who feel they would be more compatible with a roommate of a different sex or gender, and students who do not want sex or gender to be a primary factor in choosing a roommate. Gender-neutral housing intends to help create a campus climate that is welcoming, inclusive, and supportive of all students. Please review the gender-neutral housing policy and FAQs page for further information.
Quarry Suites Meal Plan Requirement
Because Quarry Suites are designed without full kitchens, students are required to have a meal plan (Apartment Meal Plan cannot be used by Quarry residents). NO EXCEPTIONS to this policy will be made.
Apple Hall Custom Furniture
Apple Hall has customized furniture in order to maximize space so that all bedroom furniture can be accommodated in each room. Due to the size of some rooms it is necessary or recommended that one or two of the beds be elevated either to a half height setting using a “junior loft” bed set or full height using a regular bed set. Please refer to the floor plans posted online to review the list of rooms where beds should be elevated. Please take this information into consideration when selecting a room if you prefer to have a bed set at the lowest level.
Ice House and College Apartment Rooms
Due to the size of some rooms in Ice House H and College Apartments it is recommended that the beds be bunked (Ice House or College Apartments) or lofted (College Apartments only) if students want to have their desks in the bedroom instead of the common room. Please refer to the floor plans posted online to review the list of rooms where beds should be elevated. Please take this information into consideration when selecting a room if you prefer to have a bed that is not elevated.
For the 2020-2021 academic year, Gettysburg College is once again offering students housing at the United Lutheran Seminary at Gettysburg, which is one mile from the Gettysburg College campus. Students will be able to select large “efficiency” one-person and two-person apartments in Baughman Hall.
This is a three story residence hall with apartments that include a walk-in closet, furniture and appliances (bed, refrigerator, stove, desk and chair, dining table and chairs, bookcase), private bathroom with shower, air conditioning, coin operated laundry in the building, and parking immediately outside the building.
Visit our seminary housing web page for more specific details about living at the seminary, including photos, a map, and floor plans.
Students who select housing in the Quarry Suites, Apple Hall, Ice House, and College Apartments should pay particular attention to the bedrooms that they are signing into since the bedrooms doors lock. Students in these buildings will receive two keys at check-in: one for the apartment door and one that is specific to the bedroom door that they sign into.
Please note that there are four different housing rates. Housing rates are determined by the Gettysburg College Board of Trustees in February. Please visit our website for specific housing rates and meal plan requirements for each residence hall. For details on meal plan options, please visit the Dining Services website.
The parking philosophy is to limit students from driving throughout campus as a form of convenience rather than necessity, and to provide ample parking for commuting staff, administrators, faculty members and visitors.
- First-Year parking is prohibited unless an exemption has been granted by the Department of Public Safety.
- All students who own and/or operate a vehicle in the Gettysburg area MUST register their vehicles. This includes students who live in residence halls, college houses, off-campus housing, and fraternity houses.
- Students must apply online in CNAV/MyPlace/Public Safety Forms. Public Safety will send an email to each student informing them when to come to their office and pick up the permit.
- There is an annual $100 registration fee for all on campus parking permits. This fee is applied directly to student accounts.
- Students who reside outside of Gettysburg Borough and commute daily to campus are able to receive a Commuter Student permit for an annual registration fee of $20, which is applied directly to student accounts..
- In addition to registering their vehicles on-campus, all students approved to live off-campus and students living in a fraternity must obtain an off-campus borough permit. The borough permit does not replace the on-campus registration process for parking a vehicle on college property.
- Due to borough zoning ordinances, residents of Albaugh, Bregenzer, Carlisle House, Colonial, Corner Cottage, Lahm, Lamp Post, Paxton and Smyser Halls may apply for a Carlisle Street permit to allow them to park in one of the following parking lots: Colonial, Corner Cottage, Lahm, Lamp Post, Paxton and Smyser. This program does not guarantee residents a parking space, but it does offer less competition for the spaces.
- Appleford, Phi Delta Theta, Eisenhower Institute, 227 Carlisle St., and 209 N. Washington St. residents will require a residential parking permit in addition to their individual class vehicle permit. These areas are regulated by borough zoning ordinances. Permits for these parking areas are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
For more information about parking, please view Public Safety's Traffic and Parking Regulations brochure. Questions about campus parking should be directed to Public Safety at 717/337-6911.
