Welcome to Housing and Residential Life
Why Choose to Live on Campus?
Transition to on campus university life can be challenging. To make sure students getting the most out of their experience at Sacramento State, we offer many support services. Just as classrooms provide academic lessons, the residence halls provide life lessons.
While living on campus, residents will be faced with many opportunities to learn more about the world around them. These opportunities may sometimes seem overwhelming or difficult, but by taking full advantage of the opportunities, they can expand their horizons, and learn more about themselves, and bridge the gap into the real world.
Sacramento State's 6 residence halls are more than just buildings. They house over 1600 students from all backgrounds and cultures. Not only are the residence halls a great place to meet people, they also offer unique opportunities to get involved with campus life. Some other reasons to live on campus include:
Excel Academically: National studies show that residents living on campus are more likely to persist and graduate, and are more satisfied with their college experience.
Get Connected: Residents are more likely to be involved in campus activities and interact more frequently with faculty and other students.
Receive Support: Interact with dedicated professional staff living in the halls trained to help them realize their academic and personal goals.
Convenience: There is convenient access to parking, computer labs, laundry facilities, study lounges, dining facilities and more. Class is a 10 minute walk.
Become a Leader: Leadership, employment and service opportunities allow residents to develop valuable leadership skills for the real world.
Live Safely: Public Safety and Residential Life staff members are available 24 hours a day and work with residents on safety-awareness programs and policies.
Prepare for Tomorrow: Personal development programs and activities in a broad range of educational, recreational and social-awareness topics offer residents a chance to expand their understanding of the diverse world around them.
Experience Campus Life: Undergraduate college experience comes only once in a life time. “Living on” enables residents to maximize this experience and create friends and memories for life.
