SDSU encourages all students to live on campus for at least 2 years while studying at SDSU.

Research shows that students who live on campus for a second, third and even fourth year are more likely to graduate on time than their off-campus counterparts.

In fact, students who live on campus have a 10-15% better chance of doing well in college!




Living off campus

Commute to campus? You're not alone! We can help you find a group of friends, a student organization, a research project, a mentor, or a community service event that will help make SDSU your home away from home.  With Student Life & Leadership (SLL), you have a friend on campus to direct you — and connect you — to lots of ideas and resources.

Getting involved is easy: Just contact SLL at (619) 594-5221, email sll@mail.sdsu.edu, or visit the SLL office in Student Services West, Room 1661 (map).
