Stan State students in housing.

It Takes A Village

When you live on campus, you are immersed in the college experience. You have a village of professional staff and peer mentors to support your professional and personal goals and offer advice whenever you need it. You are surrounded by a community of students where your roommates and neighbors become study partners and your study partners become lifelong friends.

New Student Orientation

You'll also register for your classes at this time.
