To live in Fowler Hall, prospective students must have applied for admissions to Gadsden State Community College. A Residence Hall Application and a deposit of $200 are required in order to be placed on a waiting list for a room. The student will be notified when a room is available. At this time the student must pay the dorm fees for the entire semester. Click below on “Residence Hall Fees” for amounts. After all fees have been paid, the student is then guaranteed a room for the current or following semester. Rooms are assigned on a first-paid, first-served basis. A receipt of “payment in full” should be presented to the Residence Hall staff to guarantee a room assignment. Remember, a room is not guaranteed until the dorm fee is paid in full. Waiting until the last minute to pay the full dorm fee may result in the student not getting a room.
Apartments and other types of housing arrangements are near the campus. Fowler Hall adheres to the 1968 Civil Rights Act regarding discrimination in its facilities.
