Learn More about the Logan Community House

The house location may change year to year, but it is one of the residences owned by Gonzaga University. Located in the Logan Neighborhood, the house will be within walking distance to campus.
 
Costs may change from year to year depending on the number of residents and Housing and Resident Life lease requirements. In 2020-21, the cost is $450 per resident plus utilities.
 

Sophomores, juniors, and students who will be in a graduate program may apply to live in the Logan Community House. Past engagement with a Center for Community Engagement (CCE) program or other community engagement experience is strongly preferred. Residents are required to comply with all Gonzaga University Housing and Residence Life policies for off campus students.

Community involvement includes participation in a CCE program during the resident's year living in the house. Residents are also expected to attend the weekly Logan Family Dinner at Logan Elementary School, monthly neighborhood council meetings, and CCE's leader training week in August. Residents will also plan an event each semester that builds campus-community connections.

Within the house, residents will take turns facilitating weekly community-building nights and will have opportunities to participate in monthly reflection and professional development sessions facilitated by CCE staff or other community leaders.

 
Everyone in the Logan Community House goes through an application process. Residents can encourage friends to apply, but the selection process is facilitated by CCE staff members. People may know one another, and everyone in the house will have some shared interests based on their commitments to community engagement!
 
In 2019, residents planned a "Winter Wonderland" event that was held during the Logan Family Dinner. They invited kids to build gingerbread houses, make snowflakes, and participate in other activities. They also handed out gloves and hot chocolate! There are many options for potential events, and residents can be creative. Other ideas have included picnics on Mission Park, a community kickball tournament, and an open house at Foley Library.
 
No, residents will need to provide their own furniture, juat as they would when renting any Gonzaga-owned or off-campus house.
 
The lease typically runs from July 1 through May 31.
