Gettysburg College offers several different housing styles for upperclass students. Below is a list of our upperclass buildings with links to detailed information about each building.
To view the floor plans for a particular building, students should login to their CNAV account, select “MyHousing” from the first drop-down menu, then select “My Housing Self-Service.” From there, click on the blue "Links" drop-down menu and select floor plans.
Traditional Style Housing
Traditional style housing includes halls and houses that have singles, doubles, and triples that open up to long corridors. These buildings tend to have group bathrooms and may have a shared kitchen. Students select to live in these buildings by small group or by choosing to live in a single or double without connection to a particular group. These buildings offer students the best opportunity to meet new people through the residential experience.
College House and Fraternity House Living
Gettysburg College owns many houses along North Washington Street and Carlisle Street. Most of these properties are part of our College House program.
Gettysburg College owns six fraternity houses and an additional three houses are privately owned. Fraternity members are required to live in their house unless the house is full. Greek Housing is coordinated by both the Office of Residential Education and the Office of Student Activies & Greek Life.
Suite Style Housing
Living in a suite means that the students have access to a private bathroom. At Gettysburg, there are two different types of suite style living options.
Option 1: Motels
The motels offer students the opportunity to live in a double or single with a private bathroom. Most of these rooms are selected by single or doubles without connection to a larger group.
Smyser Hall (note: Smyser will be offline for the fall 2023 semester due to a renovation project)
Option 2: Quarry Suites
The Quarry buildings offer groups of students the opportunity to live together in singles and doubles sharing a private common space and bathroom. The singles and doubles are, for the most part, selected by suite in groups of five to seven. Each building has one kitchen shared by the 40 to 60 students living in the building. A meal plan is required for students who live in these buildings.
Apartment Style Housing
Apartments offer groups of students the opportunity to live together in singles and doubles sharing a private, common space, bathroom, and kitchen. The apartments are largely selected by groups. The College owns a few two person apartments but most are for groups of four to six students.
