I live off-campus and would like to move to Gables or Woodside!

Students living off-campus are able to join a group and participate in the apartment selection process but they cannot be the captain of their group and at least one person in their group must currently be an on-campus resident.

If you are not part of a group and would like to live in the on-campus apartments for the 2022-2023 academic year, please complete an On-Campus Housing Request at the beginning of March to be considered. 

What are my chances of getting the apartment I want? 

  • If you currently live in the on-campus apartments and don't have a group that fills your desired apartment type, you must join the Apartment Wishlist. The Assignments Coordinator for Apartments will work with all apartment returners with partial groups to consolidate and fill apartments. Please understand that not all apartment types or room types will be available.
  • Your sign up time is issued based on current earned credits. The more credits you have earned, the earlier your sign-up time will be. If you are a first year student (rising Sophomore), remember that your chances to get a single in the apartments will be lower than other students with more credits.  

Who lives in the Gables and Woodside Apartments?

  • Here is how our population generally breaks down:
    • The majority of 3, 4 and 5 person apartments at Gables are occupied by Juniors.
    • The majority of 6 person apartments at Gables are occupied by Sophomores. 
    • The majority of 4 person Woodside apartments are occupied by Sophomores.

How can I better my chances? 

  • If you are not a resident of the on-campus apartments during the Selection Process, join a group where at least one of the members already lives in Gables or Woodside. Current residents receive first choice in their respective building. 
  • Make sure that at least one of your group members has a high number of credits earned.
  • Keep in mind that 6 person apartments at Gables and 4 person apartments at Woodside are the most available spaces. If you aim for those, your chances will be higher!
    • Check our table on the drop-down below for more information on what type of apartments are available on-campus.

On-Campus Apartment spaces fill up quickly! Be prepared and have a plan B for other spaces on campus. The application for Residence Halls opens on early February! 


The similarity in cost may surprise you! Per semester, a traditional residence hall double plus the core meal plan actually costs a little bit more than a double room in a 6-person Gables apartment and the largest swipe meal plan! If you would rather do more of your own cooking, meal plans are optional for apartment residents. Add in free break housing and the savings go up.

If you do not have a full group to fill all the spaces in the apartment but are still hoping to return to Gables or Woodside, our apartment selection process will allow you to complete the application, form your group (even if it's a group of one!), and there will be an option to join the Apartment Wishlist on the room selection page. The Assignments Coordinator for apartments will work to manually assign you to an apartment space with other partial groups. So even if you don't have a full group, there's a great opportunity for you to to get a wonderful placement in the on-campus apartments.

Yes! More information about coed apartment living is available here.

Yes! They remain open during Thanksgiving, Winter and Spring Breaks at no additional cost! You are free to come and go as you please during those break periods.

No, you shouldn't! The best course of action is to start as early as possible and get your group together. Form your housing group early! That way you are prepared for the selection process when it begins.

You’ll be automatically added to our apartment wishlist, as we will be able to see that you indeed filed your housing applications and formed a group online. We will call your group captain if spaces open for your group members at Gables or Woodside. Every year we are able to accommodate a number of groups from the apartment waitlist, so stay positive! Additionally, if you have any specific questions or requests about your apartment assignment or your hope to live at Gables or Woodside next year, contact housing.office@unh.edu.

Also don’t forget that we offer the opportunity for you to participate in Block Housing which gives groups of 6-12 friends the opportunity to select a block of rooms together in specific residence halls.

Any student participating in the Apartment Selection Process agrees that they are NOT a "placeholder” for a different student – they fully intend to live at Gables or Woodside for the academic year and are bound by all terms of the Room & Board Agreement, including the Cancellation Charge Schedule.
