Campus Housing Communities

Residence Hall Options

Chico State students have several residence halls from which to choose. We have six traditional residence halls (Mechoopda Hall, Esken Hall, Shasta Hall, Lassen Hall, Sutter Hall, and Whitney Hall) as well as our thematic housing program, with six houses in Konkow Hall. Together these halls provide housing for 1,500 students who are mostly first-time freshmen. Sutter Hall is open to freshmen but also serves continuing students and transfer students. Though specifics vary among each community, all halls offer accommodations for both men and women. The halls are generally designed with rooms for two students who share the same general bathrooms with 30+ residents. Each hall is in close proximity to the residential dining facility and within easy walking distance to classes. While residence halls accommodations are not guaranteed to incoming students, we do give priority to first-time freshmen, except in Sutter Hall.

Advantages of living in residence halls include:

  • Leadership opportunities
  • Supportive study environment with study lounges and Internet access
  • Live-in student and professional staff to assist residents
  • Convenience
  • All-you-care-to-eat meal plans
  • On-site laundry facilities

During the year, each residence hall develops into a community—a product of both the hall itself and the students who live there. The diversity of living experiences and programs creates opportunities for all residents to participate in their community.

Apartment-Style Living

University Village (UV) is a university–owned apartment-style community. The UV program is tailored after the residence hall program, while still giving residents the benefits of an apartment community. University Village is a leisurely (less than a mile) walk or bike ride from campus. Free bus service to and from campus is available.
