Family & Graduate Housing
Family & Graduate Housing consists of 587 apartments located in eight apartment communities (Paisley Court, Branegan Court, West Julia Martin, McIntosh Court, Grant-Chamberlain Drive, Westside Houses, Peter Koch Tower and Nelson Story Towers). All units are within walking distance to campus facilities.
The Family & Graduate Housing Office (FGHO) sponsors events for children, non-student spouses, students, and the entire family. Enjoy a variety of events such as barbecues and concerts throughout the summer, as well as a week’s worth of “welcoming” activities at the beginning of the academic year. Child care is available through the ASMSU Daycare Center (located near Family & Graduate Housing) during Summer Session as well as fall and spring semesters. Children’s playgrounds are conveniently placed near each apartment community. A monthly newsletter is distributed to apprise tenants of upcoming Family & Graduate Housing events and pertinent seasonal information.
FGHO welcomes applications for both “summer only” and “year-round” qualified students. A student may reside in Family & Graduate Housing with individuals whom the student has or shares a legal responsibility. Examples of such relationships include, but are not limited to: married students, students with dependent children, students with dependent parent(s), and students with disabilities who require a live-in personal care attendant.
Single graduate students, second-degree undergraduates, and undergraduates who have earned more than seventy-two (72) credits, may choose to reside in one-bedroom apartments located in Peter Koch Tower and Nelson Story Towers. They may also choose to reside either alone or with a same-gender student roommate in Grant Chamberlain Drive.
At the time of occupancy, student applicants must provide documentation of their legal relationship to those persons residing with the student. Such documentation could include: a marriage license, children’s birth certificate(s), custody decree and/or letter of guardianship, or other documentation sufficient to establish a legal responsibility. Second-degree undergraduate students must provide a copy of their degree from an accredited four-year institution. Individuals who are not accompanied by their legal dependent and are not a graduate, second-degree undergraduate or upperclassmen student with seventy-two (72) completed credits or more may be accommodated in the residence halls.
In order for a new student to be eligible for Family & Graduate Housing, undergraduate students must be registered for a minimum of nine credits; graduate students must be registered for a minimum of five credits. Any change in student status must be immediately reported to FGHO.
