Why is CCGA going to creating One Bedroom/Three Bed shared apartments?
CCGA provides triple rooms in order to assure that as many Freshmen, Transfers, and Returning students as possible have a place in campus housing. Due to increased enrollment in recent years, demand for campus housing has grown and exceeded the available space in standard double rooms at Coastal Place Apartments. Our experience at CCGA has been that most students prefer to live in campus housing because of the many benefits they receive from doing so. Students who live in campus housing...

- Find it easier to form friendships with their peers
- Develop a greater sense of belonging to the College
- Participate more in student organizations, resulting in development of leadership skills
- Develop stronger connections to faculty

How many students will be in One Bedroom/Three Bed shared apartment?
We estimate that the majority of CPA will need to be tripled in order to accommodate our student population.
How are students assigned to a One Bedroom/Three Bed shared apartment?
Students who volunteer to a triple are assigned into tripled rooms first. Fill-an-apartment days will be after the reapplication period and the students who fill an apartment with three students are able to pick their apartment and their roommates. Those students will receive their assignments before they leave campus housing in May.
How are students moved out of their One Bedroom/Three Beds shared apartment?
Students are moved in order of the earliest completed housing application date. As space becomes available on campus, students are informed that a space is available via their CCGA email address. The tripled group can then decide which student will be moving into the new vacancy, or they may all remain in the triple. If tripled students choose to remain tripled, they will not be moved until after all other tripled students have been offered the opportunity to move.
How does the College determine which rooms to triple?
There are several factors that are considered, including space and fire code requirements. All rooms at Coastal Place Apartments meet fire code regulations and furniture is arranged appropriately to ensure that exit pathways, sprinkler heads, and smoke detectors will not be obstructed in case of an emergency.
How will I fit all my belongings?
We encourage students in tripled rooms to bring only important and essential items to their room on move in day and leave other items at home. For example, at move in, bring clothes for warm weather, and transitional fall weather, but leave heavy winter clothes at home. This plan provides an opportunity to see how things fit, and then roommates can see how much room is left for them to bring additional items from home.
We also encourage roommates to communicate ahead of move-in to make decisions about items they may share, such as a TV. Student find lots of creative ways to organize their rooms, such as utilizing hanging closet organizers, organizers under the bed, or placing dressers into their wardrobes.
Where can I go to study or have some alone time?
There is the main lounge, which includes the gym, multi-purpose room, laundry room, and main lobby area. Just next to CPA there are McDonalds, Panda Express, and Panera Bread that all offer free wireless Internet. At the main campus, one can also find that the library, computer labs, and other academic spaces provide students with quiet study areas where they can complete homework, projects, and study for important tests.
How long will I be in my tripled room?
Due to the increased enrollment of the incoming freshmen class and amount of returning students there will be limited space for students to be moved. If students are offered the opportunity to move, we suggest they strongly consider it before passing it up. Most students will probably remain tripled throughout the semester at CCGA.
Given this demand for housing, is more housing being built?
In response to recent growth, CCGA recently added Mariner Village, which provided 216 additional beds for our campus in August 2016. Due to the 12.7% increase in enrollment for Fall 2016 and continued growth in Spring 2017, CCGA is discussing additional housing options. Students at CCGA are tripled in order to accommodate them in campus housing and allow them the opportunity to attend CCGA and enjoy all of the benefits that the college has to offer.
