Walk to your classes, zip over to the library to get that book you need, grab a bite to eat, or work out in our amazing athletic and recreation facilities. No matter what you are looking for, living on campus helps you make the most of your college experience and keeps you close to the resources you need to succeed. Gannon provides a comfortable environment centered on the academic and holistic development of each student. There are numerous lounges for either study or socialization. Furniture, internet access, utilities, and maintenance are all included in our facilities. Who needs to live on campus? Gannon University requires all students who are within their first 4 semesters to live in University-owned housing in order to encourage engagement with the Gannon community and provide support to students transitioning to college life. Students who reside with a parent/guardian whose permanent residence is within 25 miles of the University are exempt from this requirement. All of our incoming students will reside in either a traditional two-person room in Finegan Hall or in a suite-style room in North Hall. When students enter their second year at Gannon University, the can move into a wide variety of University-owned apartment buildings, residence halls or other small properties.
