The Residential Life program at Chico State encourages personal growth in a student community setting. It provides a climate where the community atmosphere complements the educational mission of the University.
Each residence community has a professional full-time coordinator and an assistant coordinator as well as student resident advisors for each living area. There is also a programming and leadership coordinator who initiates educational, social, and athletic activities within the University Housing communities.
On-Campus Residence Halls
Chico State provides five on-campus residence halls reserved for incoming freshmen; the sixth hall, Sutter Hall, includes our South Tower Transfer building. Most residence hall rooms are double occupancy, but there are some single and triple rooms in Whitney. Whitney Hall, the largest of the residence halls, accommodates 544 students in a high-rise setting. Lassen Hall and Shasta Hall each accommodate 210 students. At the north end of campus are several smaller residence halls. Esken Hall and Mechoopda Hall house 112 and 120 students respectively. Konkow Hall is made up of six thematic communities and accommodate 78 students in total.
University Village (UV) is the only University-owned apartment community and is the most unique student housing facility in Chico. This resident community provides mostly cluster-style living with up to six students sharing a kitchen and two bathrooms per suite. Approximately 600 Chico State students will call University Village home for the academic year. UV is home to first-time freshmen, continuing residents, transfer students, and international students. The cluster-style apartments are fully furnished, so UV residency means you don't have to provide furniture, arrange for utilities, or phone and Internet connections.
The six on-campus residence halls include three choices of a number-of-meals-per-semester plan plus Flex Cash. Students who live in Konkow Hall or University Village have a smaller-meal-per-semester plan plus Flex Cash. Students use their meal cards in the Sutter Residential Dining Center all-you-care-to-eat residential dining program or the Sutter Café late night grab-and-go eatery. Flex Cash can be used at the Marketplace Café in the BMU (student union), the two coffee shops on campus, or the two convenience stores on campus.
