Additional Student Housing InformationCommunity Living
Residential living promotes individual and group responsibility by fostering a positive living and learning environment. College and Student Housing policies balance the rights of the individual and the rights of the community. While carrying out its educational mission, Glen Oaks Community College aspires to create and maintain conditions that are both fun and educational.
All Glen Oaks Community College student housing residents and their guests are responsible for conducting themselves in a manner that does not infringe on the rights of others or interfere with the educational mission of the College. By signing your Housing agreement, you agree to make yourself aware of and abide by all Housing policies and expectations; the Glen Oaks Community College Student Code of Conduct; and applicable state and federal laws. A copy of the Glen Oaks Community College Student Code of Conduct can be found in the current College Catalog at glenoaks.edu.
Violations are subject to disciplinary action, criminal prosecution, removal from student housing, and/or payment of replacement fees as deemed appropriate by College officials. Residents are responsible for the conduct of their guest(s) and may be subject to disciplinary action as a result of misconduct of their guest(s). Glen Oaks Community College along with Student Housing staff reserve the right to contact the individual(s) listed as emergency contacts on the Student Housing agreement.
In an effort to create an atmosphere conducive to studying, during the week of exams each semester we enforce 24-hour quiet hours and restrict visitors during the hours of 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Residents wishing to utilize financial aid to pay for housing must have sufficient verified financial aid (i.e. federal, state, local scholarships, grants, Pell Grant, loans, etc.) to cover tuition and housing on file in the Glen Oaks Community College Financial Aid Office prior to the date that housing payments are due. Outstanding tuition and housing payments will be deducted from available financial aid prior to aid being disbursed to the student. The availability of financial aid does not relieve the student of financial responsibility for the balance due under the agreement. Any amount not covered by financial aid is due in accordance with the payment dates through Nelnet. If you have questions regarding financial aid refer to the financial aid website or visit Student Services in the main building. Applicants should note that the financial aid process can take several weeks, and proper time should be allotted for applications to be reviewed and approved. Financial aid cannot be used to cover the $75 non-refundable administrative fee.
Meetings – Building, Floor, Individual and Suite, Orientations, etc.
During the year, Housing staff will host meetings to share information and discuss community events and issues. Attendance at these meetings is mandatory to ensure that all individuals are aware of pertinent information, upcoming events, and deadlines. Residents who are unable to make these meetings are expected to make arrangements with the appropriate staff member to get the information provided at the meetings. Disciplinary action or fines may be assessed if residents fail to attend mandatory meetings.
