Room and Board

Guilford College is a residential campus, therefore, all traditional students are required to have an on-campus housing assignment and meal plan unless excluded from the Residential Contract or approved for an off-campus release. If you have not been granted an off-campus release and have not completed a housing application, you will be assigned a room and meal plan and must pay all related charges. Please go to https://www.guilford.edu/life/living-and-eating to review the Residential Contract, complete the application for housing and/or submit an off-campus release application. Any concerns should be directed to the Residential Education and Housing Office at 336-316-2105 or resed@guilford.edu.
