Housing Placement Priority

We strongly encourage students to apply early to establish their housing placement priority. Housing placement priority is based on the following:

  1. Receipt of completed housing application
  2. Receipt of $300 housing placement fee.
  3. Visa approval confirmation for students from China and Vietnam.

Our popular Campus Corner Apartments fill every quarter and have a waiting list. So, apply early.

Five Important Considerations for Study at Green River College

  1. You don't need to know what you are going to be for the rest of your life at the age of 17
  2. You get a small college feel but have big school resources
  3. You can make strong connections with your professors.
  4. You can make a seamless transition to most universities in the USA.
  5. You can live on campus.
