The Residence Halls Office is responsible for providing student housing and promoting residence life programs for students. 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, and they form a community that helps and encourages academic excellence, while providing co-curricular programs, healthy recreational activities, and enjoyable entertainment.
The University of Guam has three co-ed residence halls (dormitories) on campus, which accommodate up to 191 student residents in double-occupancy rooms and single private rooms. Dorm 1 residences are located on the first floor of the building with two wings and a total of two corridors, while Dorms 2 and 3 are two-story buildings with two wings, for a total of four corridors per hall dorm. Each corridor has 12 rooms and one or two shared bathrooms. Two students generally share residential rooms, though single rooms may be obtained for a premium when space is available. All rooms are air-conditioned and furnished with a bed, a desk and chair, and a closet or wardrobe with a chest of drawers for each resident. The residents share one kitchen, a study hall, a TV lounge, and a laundry room. Additionally, a convenience store is located in Dorm 1, while the cafeteria that serves the mandatory meal plan is located in Dorm 3.
The Residence Halls are staffed by student Resident Assistants (RAs). The RAs coordinate many co- curricular and extracurricular activities, competitions, and events, such as movie nights, game days, and much more. Recreation for residents is available at the Calvo Field House with its weight room, exercise room, and indoor courts.
Application for residence on campus may be made with the Residence Halls Office. A $100 reservation/security deposit is required at the time of the initial application. However, if a student’s application is placed on the waiting list, the security deposit is returned to the student and will be required upon availability of a room in which the student is interested. Rooms are reserved (with deposits) on a first-come firstserved basis in accordance to the application schedule for continuing/returning, new, and all applicants. Students who make reservations and are not on the waiting list but cancel their application will receive a $50 refund from their deposits ONLY when they provide the Residence Halls Office with a written cancellation before the first day of the contract period. After that date, the entire deposit is forfeited. A reservation will be automatically canceled if a student fails to arrive at the Residence Halls at the beginning of the contract period, unless a prior written confirmation of the reservation, which specifies the date of arrival, is received by the Residence Halls Office before the first day of the contract period.
To receive a housing application or additional information regarding the Residence Halls, contact the Residence Halls Office. Prospective residents are welcome to visit the Residence Halls from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Call to schedule a visit.

Students working on campus can be assured of a work environment free of discrimination and harassment on the basis of any status protected by law, to include race, sexual orientation, religion, religious creed, age, disability, citizenship status, and national origin. Administrators, directors, managers, and supervisors must inform employees of the policies prohibiting discrimination and harassment, emphasize the policy of zero tolerance, and deal promptly with any problem situations. Each of us is expected to maintain high standards of honesty, integrity, and conduct. Discrimination and harassment violate these standards.
Sexual harassment is a specific form of prohibited harassment and complaints involve sensitive and complex issues. A prompt and effective inquiry into allegations is critical -- not only to avoid liability and prevent future harassing behavior, but also to lay the groundwork for successful resolution.
