SSU's Residential Community provides comfortable, convenient campus housing for 3,100 students. Comprised of six residential villages, the Community is an unique mix of non-traditional resident suites and campus apartments, all located just seconds from the main campus classroom buildings. All suites and apartments are fully furnished and carpeted with their own living rooms and bathrooms. The apartments also contain their own kitchens with all appliances. All suites and apartments provide a wireless connectivitiy, giving residents direct access to the University's computing resources, the library, and the Internet. The Community has its own dining hall, swimming pools, study rooms, convenience store, post office, meeting rooms, and outdoor recreation areas.
The Campus Housing Staff is comprised of four professional staff members and two student assistants. Many of the professional staff have earned their degrees at Sonoma State University and have themselves lived in a residential community setting.
The purpose of Housing Services is to support the University's educational mission by assisting students, faculty, and staff in locating, securing, and maintaining suitable living accommodations. Also imbedded in our purpose is the encouragement and support of student learning and personal development.
