You Have Questions? We Have Answers

If you have a question about a specific residence hall, you can direct it to the community assistant who lives on the floor or the director who supervises the building. You can also find answers about housing in these frequently asked questions and in the University's Residence Life Handbook.

Campus Living Areas

Cal U offers living arrangements based on individual lifestyle preferences, including a variety of room configurations from one to three roommates or suitemates. The University also offers special living options at several residence halls, including:

  • Quiet areas, which offer extended residence hall quiet hours for students who require or prefer a quieter atmosphere.
  • Wellness housing, designed for students interested in healthy living who are opposed to the use of alcohol, tobacco and drugs, and who choose to live with those who do not use them. (The possession or use of alcohol or illegal drugs is strictly prohibited on all University property, and the residence halls are completely non-smoking.)
  • Honors Program Housing in Residence Hall A provides an opportunity for an enhanced educational experience for Honors Program students.

FERPA Information

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) clearly define a student's right to privacy and confidentiality, strictly limiting the disclosure of personally identifiable information from records kept by the schools.  Students must sign this form in order to allow the University to disclose any personal information to parents or legal guardians. 

Property Insurance

Did you know that the University does not insure students' personal possessions? Cal U cannot replace any property loss due to theft, fire, water, etc. Therefore, a student whose family does not have a homeowner's insurance policy with a student provision may wish to purchase a policy that offers this protection.
