The amount of your transaction will then be deducted from the card.

2 dressers with 3 drawers each
3 standard computer desks with desk chairs

Book carrel with task light is not provided in triple occupancy rooms.What is the difference between community style and residence suites?Community style halls are built in a way that promotes community development. Each floor has two gender-designated wings. On each wing is a hallway with rooms located across from each other and a common, gender designated bathroom. This is the best way to get to meet people, make friends, and find study partners. There is always something to do either with other residents or by participating in social and educational programs held in these halls.
Residence Suites are one, two or three bedrooms. However, there are only a few one bedroom suites. The roommates and suitemates share a living room and bathroom. Since there is not a common hallway and each suite has a separate entrance, residents have to make a greater effort to meet people, make friends, and get involved. Social and educational activities are held and residents go to a central location to participate.
Can I live on-campus for just one semester?If you arrive in the fall semester, the “Student Housing and Meal Plan License Agreement” period is for the entire academic year (fall and spring semesters). You sign an academic year license agreement and are responsible for all of the Terms and Conditions of the agreement.
Exception: If at the conclusion of the fall semester, you
Withdraw, graduate, or transfer from Fresno State
Join the military and are required to report for duty
Are participating in an approved one semester program and your name is submitted to Fresno State Student Housing by the program’s coordinator prior to the beginning of the fall semester.
You may “Petition to Cancel” your license agreement. If you meet one of these conditions and can provide the required documentation no later than November 1, your Petition for Cancellation will be approved and you will not be charged the spring room and meal plan cost as long as you are not enrolled at Fresno State for the spring semester; however, a processing fee is required and administrative fees may be assessed.
Note: There is an option to apply for spring only semester. This may be done on any regular academic year application. All dates and deadlines are different for the spring only applicants. For more information, please contact our Atrium Customer Service Desk at 559.278.2345. Why should I choose to live on-campus rather than live in an off-campus apartment?The convenience of living on-campus in a community of students who support your academic goals and provides you with an environment that encourages independence separates the on-campus living experience from an off-campus experience. When you move on-campus over 1,100 students will also be moving in and be looking to make friends. When you leave home, you’ll be looking for a new support network – study partners, someone to go to lunch with or the movies and friends to share your new university life with. The Residential Life Staff live on-campus and provide educational and social programs. We also have a 24-hour Atrium Customer Service Desk and a Residential Life Staff member is on-call 24 hours/day, 7 days/week. We have many safety features that enhance your living experience.

Why are parents or guardians who pay for their child’s housing not permitted to obtain information about their account or other general concerns for housing?According to the Family and Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, we cannot legally provide student information to anyone other than the student unless a student provides in writing the person or persons we are allowed to discuss their account or general concerns about housing.

Do you provide family housing on campus?Family or couple housing is not available on the Fresno State campus. There are a number of apartments within a one to five mile radius of the Fresno State campus. You can contact a local rental service for apartment information.
Why are there so few single rooms available?One of the purposes of living on campus is to develop a network of students who support each other academically and to make new friends. Living in a double occupancy room provides many opportunities to develop this network and to meet new people. In addition, Fresno State Student Housing wants to provide on-campus living to as many Fresno State students as possible. We have surveyed residents and asked for suggestions on how to increase the number of beds available. The majority of residents responded to reduce the number of singles. Fresno State Student Housing appreciates residents’ understanding as we strive to provide housing to as many Fresno State students as possible.
How big are the rooms?On the “Room Options” page, the approximate dimensions of the rooms are shown on the drawings.
In a community style hall, most double or large single occupancy rooms are 15 feet, 10 inches by 11 feet, 2 inches.
In a residence suite most double occupancy, triple occupancy or large singles in a 2 or 3 bedroom are 14 feet by 12 feet 2 inches.
