At California State University, Stanislaus we offer a variety of living areas that will assist you with your transition, enhance your residential experience and promote a community atmosphere. You will be able to choose from a variety of living learning communities and themed communities. Each of these areas offer different room types, a wide range of programming events and varying levels of academic support.
Living-learning communities are designed to support student success from every angle! These communities have a strong academic element, are directly linked to enrollment in a class and have eligibility criteria on order to reside amongst the floor.
Residents of these communities have their own Resident Assistant, Peer Academic Coach and access to the Village Success Center which is the on-site Academic Success "Hub" within the gates of Housing, where students can easily access peer-tutors, professional advising and more. Students can self-select to live in these communities when they apply to live on campus and their acceptance will be approved by a staff member shortly thereafter.
There are two first year living learning communites, as well as a second year living learning community.
Themed communities are interest-based and while linked to a class they still maintain a strong academic support element. Themed communities receive identical funding for floor events, academic workshops and social activities. They have their own Resident Assistant, Peer Academic Coach and access to the Village Success Center which is the on-site Academic Success "Hub" within the gates of Housing, where students can easily access peer-tutors, professional advising and more.
There are two first year themed communities and four upplerclass themed communities.
