Living on Campus
You've made the right collegiate choice to attend SVSU...now comes the decision where to live. SVSU offers spaces for over 2,300 students to call "my home away from home."
Over 70% of freshmen choose to live on campus. There is no residency requirement, and yet, a majority of freshmen select on-campus living as their preference to be true Cardinals. Why live on campus? The experience is invaluable. The compact campus creates an inordinate amount of opportunities within 5-10 minutes of walking. Residents can also traverse campus mostly indoors as most academic buildings are connected.
Life on Campus
Roommates and neighbors become friends...friends become your extended family and support system here at SVSU. Residents soon learn the rigors of scheduling around classes, studying, group projects, working, wellness, dining, and organizational meetings. Time and convenience become precious commodities that help balance the demands on a full-time student when you can go "home" for breaks between.
Modern housing facilities, dining services including national franchises, and community living opportunities for engagement all enhance the living experience outside the classroom. Meet new people, gain independence, and build life-long friendships during your collegiate years.
