Living on campus can provide students with the opportunities to socialize, meet new people, get involved with a variety of activities, form relationships and learn about other cultures. Studies have shown that students who reside on campus tend to have better grades and attendance than those who live off campus. Residents are more likely to become active in student-led organizations and campus life. With this in mind, we look forward to having you live on campus during your time at Galveston College. Get involved! Stay active! Go Whitecaps!
