Themed Resident Housing - Math and Science

CSU, Chico freshman find on-campus residence halls to be an ideal place to live. Unfortunately, given the recent increase in enrollment, on-campus housing demands are high and space is limited.

Fortunately for a select number of freshman mathematics and science majors, we have created a themed housing, the Konkow Mathematics and Science House. This is one of the units in Konkow Residence Hall which boasts apartment-style living, each unit including a huge kitchen, living room, and dining room shared by only 14 people. Even though this is considered one of the best on-campus housing options, it actually cost less than most other residence halls since, with access to a full kitchen, Konkow students don’t need to pay for a full meal plan.

 We have found that the combination of living with like-minded students, receiving academic support, and taking courses as a cohort helps students be highly successful in what can be a very challenging first year. Residents in this house will be provided with in-house tutoring in mathematics and academic advising.

Students accepted into Project M.A.T.H., an innovative enrichment program for those interested in becoming mathematics teachers, will automatically be offered a place in the Konkow Math and Science House once the Konkow Housing Application is also submitted.

Extended Stay Communities
