Residence Life FAQ


College Village offers two styles of apartments, doubles and singles. Each individual apartment is fully furnished and carpet is provided in most living areas, hallways, and bedrooms. The kitchen comes with a full stove, full refrigerator, and ample counter space. The bathroom comes complete with a shower, toilet, and sink. Local telephone, cable, and wireless internet service are included in the cost of housing. 

Guest & Visitors Policy

Residents are able to invite visitors & guests to their apartment by following the policies for Day Visitors and Overnight Guests. All non-residents are required to stop at the safety office and register with a Safety Officer prior to entering any College Village building. Residents are responsible for staying with their guests/visitors at all times, the actions of their guests/visitors, and informing them of campus policies. All guests must have valid photo ID to register.

College Village Safety Officers also manage the sign-in and sign-out process for guests and visitors to the residence buildings. All Guests must:

  • Sign-in at the Safety Office FIRST upon arrival and again before leaving the property.
  • Get a visitor parking pass if needed.
  • Provide valid photo ID at sign-in and anytime asked by CV staff.
  • Failure to comply with any CV or GCC policies will result in being banned from CV property.


Each College Village apartment has a full kitchen for students to cook, entertain, and share meals which suit their own dietary needs and tastes. On campus the College has food plan options for students and staff.  Students may choose to purchase from a variety of meal plans and declining balance options. To lean more, visit the American Dining Services page.


You won't have to trek to a Laundromat in town or take clothes home to wash them. You'll find FREE laundry machines right on the property! All you need to do is provide your own laundry detergent, dryer sheets, and a clothesbasket.
