Southwestern Oaks

Southwestern Oaks

All GSW freshmen are housed in either Southwestern Oaks I or Southwestern Oaks II, which offer shared suites and private bedroom suite options. Share suites offer a semi-private bathroom to share between roomates (no community bathrooms). This peer community helps students foster and grow by creating a social hub that encourages students to rise together.

Southwestern Oaks is also home to our First-Year Experience Program, which is designed to provide freshmen with a seemless transition into the college environment.

My favorite experience I've had while at GSW was living with my best friend for two years. We really had the best time and got to learn a lot more about each other.
