Gonzaga University prides itself on being a residential campus. The research shows that students who live on campus and participate in a meal plan are more successful in college than those who do not take advantage of these occasions. Dining halls are places where students bond and form lasting relationships that help them in life beyond college. Several of our alumni have commented about the lifelong relationships they have formed because of the residential campus experience. This is why Gonzaga Global requires students to live in program managed housing and participate in a meal plan for two years.

Gonzaga University and Gonzaga Global seek your feedback to place you in housing and dining that is the best fit for your needs and lifestyle. Please submit this Housing and Dining Preference Form with the other forms sent with your Conditional Acceptance Packet.

A note about on-campus dining:

The Gonzaga University community is one of a kind. Jesuit education sets us apart from other Universities. The Jesuit culture helps bring everyone together and teaches us to become well-rounded individuals. Part of the value of living in community is dining together in a location, which encourages all Zags to break bread together. The Hemmingson Center is home of our primary dining location the COG, which stands for Circulus Omnium Gonzaga-orum (Latin meaning “Where Gonzagans Gather).

Helpful Definitions:
  • Swipes: 1 Swipe = 1 entrance into one of the dining halls.
