About University Housing

The Residence Halls & University Village

The residential life program at Chico State encourages personal growth in a residential setting and provides a climate where the community atmosphere complements the educational mission of the University. Each residence hall has live–in staff consisting of a professional, full-time residence community coordinator or an assistant residence community coordinator, and a student resident advisor for each living area. There is also a programming and leadership coordinator who initiates educational, social, and athletic activities within the housing community. For those who choose to live on campus, the University offers six residence halls: Lassen, Shasta, Sutter, Whitney, Mechoopda, and Esken.

University Village is apartment-style with all the advantages and benefits of a residence hall combined with a more independent living arrangement including a shared kitchen and dining room.  Like the residence halls, University Village has a full time professional residence community coordinator, an assistant residence community coordinator and 15 student Resident Advisors.  University Village is a short one mile away from the main campus classroom buildings.

All of these halls are served by one main dining center that provides a full range of food services, Sutter Dining, providing 19 meals per week.  In addition, Sutter Cafe is open for late night dining until midnight Sunday through Thursday and 9 pm Friday and Saturday. 

We also offer a Thematic Living Program located in Konkow Houses— which include a common living room, two gender–specific restrooms, and a kitchen. The units house 14 students each and are designed for this special program. In cooperation with faculty in their academic departments, the residents of each housing unit create a living environment to enhance their academic program. This is achieved through organized activities such as lectures, programs, musical and cultural events, and dinners. Students interested in Konkow Hall should contact the University Housing Office for more information, 530-898-6325.
