SSU’s residential community provides a mix of six distinct campus “villages” that provide housing for 3,200 students. Living on campus is a key part of the education experience at SSU, and it is designed to promote academic success as well as personal wellness, civility, and responsibility. Experienced professional staff and highly trained student leaders work and live in all on-campus villages.  Programs are planned for all on-campus residents, including trips, lectures, and social and educational activities. Living on-campus provides opportunities for students to engage and connect with other students, staff, and faculty.
