Academic Success

Compared to students who live off campus, those who live on-campus:

  • Have higher GPAs
  • Take more units
  • Are more likely to graduate
  • Are less likely to be on academic probation

We're Here to Help

Each hall is staffed by:

  • a full-time professional Residence Hall Coordinator
  • a team of paraprofessional Resident Advisors
  • a faculty member, called a Faculty-in-Residence

These in-hall staff members are a great resource, leading you to all the benefits of living at SDSU – from learning about campus clubs and organizations, to finding campus resources – they are eager to help.


When you live at college, you live the college life.

When you don't, you don't.
