Campus information

CSU Housing has a variety of leadership opportunities through student employment and volunteer student organizations. Resident and Community Assistants are live-on student staff members who are selected to be a resource for students. Through programs and operational procedures, these student staff members are committed to making sure each housing student needs are met.

Residence Hall Council is the student governing body for Housing. This student run organization is committed to advocating for policies and procedures that cater to the needs of all residence as well as coordinating community wide programming that help students become involved within housing and the CSU community.
