Our Residence Halls are humble and modest in nature, providing conventional single and double room options to UOG students.
The staff and employees at the Residence Halls strive to provide an environment favorable to those residents who embrace responsibility and community. Respect is the key word as student residents are expected to observe the rights of others; as well as to practice good hygiene and sanitary practices. Positive mannerism is expected of young adults. Equipment and basic facility accommodations are to be used and shared among all residents with great care and responsibility. Student residents are expected to behave themselves within acceptable standards of behavior; and, must take individual responsibility for their action(s).
In order to protect the health and safety of student residents, a set of rules have been developed by University of Guam Administration, Residence Halls’ staff and the representatives (i.e. Residence Halls Governing Council). Each resident is expected to know these rules and observe them. Applicants who cannot accept these rules or cannot extend consideration of others in a community living environment should re-asses their intentions before applying and submitting their Residence Halls applications. The Residence Halls at the University of Guam is by no means a luxury lodging facility and is not grand or upscale as some state-side dormitories. However, it does provide an excellent opportunity for those who are responsible and embrace community-living environments in a culturally diverse island setting.
The University of Guam Residence Halls is much more than a place for students to sleep between classes. Living on-campus contributes to the intellectual, social, and emotional well-being of the students who compose the residential community. Student residents live conveniently near University Resources (e.g., their classes and professors, the Library, the Computer Center, and the Field House) and they are part of a community that encourages and helps them to excel academically, while providing them with edifying co-curricular programs, healthy recreational activities, and enjoyable entertainment.
The Residence Halls is also a great place to meet people from all over the world. Most residents come from throughout Micronesia (Guam, Rota, Tinian, Saipan, Palau, Yap, Chuuk, Pohnpei, Kosrae, Marshall Islands), as well as Japan, Korea, Taiwan, China, the Philippines, Europe, and the United States mainland. We strongly encourage all students to avail themselves of the advantages of living on-campus, participate in residence life and enjoy the complete college experience!
