New Applicants To SSU
First Time Freshman
About ninety percent of the first time freshman (FTF) class lives on campus in the Residential Community. Typically, they would be considered a student who has never attended a University before and has just recently graduated from high school. We like to house our first time freshman in the same areas so they can live with students with whom they share classes. This helps build a better and more interactive community.
About twenty percent of the incoming transfers live on campus in the Residential Community. A typical transfer would be considered a student who has attended either a junior college or a different University and is now transferring to SSU.
Important Notice About Campus Housing Space
SSU does not guarantee campus housing to newly admitted students. We anticipate demand for campus housing exceeding availability for the Fall 2016-Spring 2017 Academic Year. SSU does not have a live-on requirement for newly admitted students. Room assignment priority is based on the date you submit your Housing Down Payment.
