The David H. and Patty A. Devier Student Suites offers two-bedroom and four-bedroom suite options with private bedrooms, furnished living spaces, and a full kitchen. The suites accommodate 108 students, including one professional live-in staff member and four resident assistants.

Students are required to apply for student housing, submit the non-refundable administrative fee, and complete the application process, concluding in the signing of a housing agreement. Students who are not emancipated minors at the time of signing the agreement are also required to have a parent or guardian sign the agreement prior to it being accepted and countersigned by Glen Oaks Community College. Only students who will be 18 years of age or older before the end of the first semester are eligible to live in the Devier Student Suites. 

Costs associated with on-campus housing are listed on the GOCC website and in the Student Housing Handbook. Students living on campus will receive in-district tuition rates.

Residential students must also meet ongoing academic requirements including full-time enrollment and satisfactory academic progress. Each semester, residential students must maintain full-time enrollment; twelve (12) credits are required for Fall/Winter semesters, and six (6) credits are required for the Summer semester. Please see the Student Housing Handbook and Student Housing Agreement for further information.

All residents must respect and comply with lifestyle expectations and all college policies and procedures. Each resident is responsible for reading and adhering to the procedures and regulations outlined in the Student Housing Handbook, the Glen Oaks Community College Housing Agreement, and the Glen Oaks Community College Student Code of Conduct. Residents are also held accountable to local, community, state, and federal authorities. Violations of the Student Housing policies may result in disciplinary actions (such as probation or suspension from the College) by the Judicial Board.
