Gonzaga University offers on-campus accommodation in a variety of formats for students of different years. The 1st year residents mostly live in the traditional style communities, while the second-year students get the suite style option. The upper-year students tend to live in apartment-style housing, and they can also live at the off-campus accommodation by the university.

About Location

The university is located in Spokane, a city that has been named among the "Best Cities in the United States" by National Geographic Traveler Magazine. Spokane is the second-largest city in the state of Washington. Even though Spokane is big enough to have plenty of events going on, it is also small enough for the students to explore and enjoy during their university years. They can also go towards the Eastern Washington and nearby Idaho panhandle region that has a jaw-dropping landscape of mountains, lakes, desert, and rivers.
