Get involved! Stay healthy! Go Whitecaps!
Living on campus can provide opportunities and a pathway for students to develop new friendships, get involved in a variety of campus events, and volunteer for a cause. Residents are more likely to become active in activities (co-curricular, fun, and multi-cultural), intramurals, and student-led clubs and organizations. Studies have shown that students who reside on campus tend to have better grades and attendance than those who live off campus. With this in mind, we look forward to having you live on campus during your time at GC.
