The Residence Life/Housing Department is always accepting Residence Hall contracts prior to the upcoming semester.
Students can request a roommate on their housing contract. The Residence Life Department will try to accommodate each request but cannot guarantee that all requests will be granted. DC3 is a non-discriminatory campus and follows the first-come-first-serve method for housing. Thus, both roommates must submit contracts and application fees at similar times to improve chances of placement together.
Private rooms are not available at Dodge City Community College at this time.
On average, about 350 students live on campus each year.
All housing contracts and application fees need to be received by the date listed on our Housing Calendar for the following school year. All housing assignments will be subject to availability. Room assignments are made upon arrival of housing contracts and application fees. Roommate assignments are made shortly thereafter. You will be notified via email of your assignments.
Room assignments are made on a first-come-first-serve basis, and are based on the date the housing contract and application fee are received. The Residence Life office strives to honor roommate requests. Students making specific roommate requests should submit their contracts and application fees early and simultaneously with the student with whom they wish to room with. Residence Life attempts to meet all roommate requests, but, unfortunately, we are not able to grant every request.
Residents are required to wait 14 days after the first day of class to request a roommate or residence hall change. Room or hall changes are granted based on room change procedures and availability of space.
The Director of Residence Life is responsible for the oversight of the Residence Halls and works with the Residence Life staff that consists of Residence Life Supervisors, Residence Life Monitors, the Residence Life Office Manager, and Resident Assistants. Residence Life Supervisors, Residence Life Monitors, and the Residence Life Office Manage are professional staff members who are involved with oversight and daily management of the Residence Halls and student staff. The Resident Assistants are student staff members who are hired to help create programs for the residents, provide peer counseling and direction, and assist their residents as needed.
You are encouraged to contact your Residence Assistant. You can also contact the Residence Life on call phone at (620) 255-2872 for any reason. If you need additional assistance or information, you can also contact the Residence Life office at (620) 227-9304 between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm Monday through Friday, and we will assist you in finding answers to help solve your problem.
We make every effort to create a safe living environment for all residents. The Residence Life staff (Residence Life Supervisor and Resident Assistants) are trained to monitor and report various safety concerns. Emergency procedures are addressed each semester with the residents. Residents are required to have their doors/windows locked at all times, whether they are in their room or whether they are away.
Visit our Personal Safety page for more information about how to keep yourself safe while on campus.
Pets are not allowed in any of the Dodge City Community College residence halls.
