There are numerous benefits to living on campus. The number one aspect is convenience. There is no need to worry about commuting and dealing with traffic--you will already be home. In addition, there are numerous programs and resources at your disposal. Student housing provides laundry facilities, game room, and a computer lab. Never mind the inconvenience of finding your own roommates, we'll carefully try to find someone who shares some things in common with you. We provide Resident Advisors to help you deal with the many issues--academic, social, or personal--that can arise while going to college. You will have the opportunity to become involved in various fun and educational programs and activities that help foster a sense of community. These activities help make Housing more than just a place to sleep at night--we want your on-campus experience to be an important piece of your education at Cal State LA.
Cal State LA Housing is one of the most diverse communities in the country. We house people from around the United States as well as around the world. Research shows that students who live on campus are more likely be successful in college and to graduate. One reason for this is that students are living in a community of people who have the same purpose--achieving an education. Students who live in Housing develop skills such as problem solving, communication, and cross cultural awareness. Students who live on campus tend to utilize campus resources more and develop a greater interaction with faculty and staff. Students are able to make friends in their new community that can last a lifetime.
Residence Hall Association
The Residence Hall Association (RHA) is the student government for residents of Cal State LA Housing. Students can use the RHA to address concerns to solve problems; initiate changes to benefit Housing residents; and put together programs to foster a greater sense of community. As a resident of Housing, every on-campus student who comes to meetings is guaranteed a voice and a vote. The RHA is also your connection with the rest of the campus and the larger campus student government. If you would like to help to find solutions for the many problems that residents face, such as on-campus parking, fees, Housing policies, facilities, and more, visit a RHA meeting and be a part of improving our community. The RHA also offers many leadership opportunities for students to gain experience and have an even greater influence on their community. For more information, stop by the Housing Services Office.
