Applicants are mailed a form for Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD). This form must be completed and returned to the SSD office within 14 days. Fresno State Student Housing has identified various rooms for the physically disabled. These rooms are available to residents who have a need for special accommodations and have submitted the request to the SSD office and a recommendation for special services is provided. All space is subject to availability. All rooms are located on the first floor of a hall and close to an exit. The Atrium exterior door on the west side of the hall can be opened by pressing the accessible button. A computer workstation with accessible features is available in the Atrium Computer Lab. Residence Life Staff are trained on how to evacuate a building and assist residents with physical disabilities.
Upon arrival or during the academic year, residents with disabilities are encouraged to contact the Assistant Director of Housing 559.278.2345, if the physical arrangements of the room or other areas of the complex are such that movement is difficult.

Assignments are made based on priority status and the date the completed application was received (subject to bed availability). Every attempt will be made to honor the preferences indicated on the Application Personal Profile. However, because some halls or room types are requested more than others, it may not be possible to provide one of the top choices. Room and board fees are assessed based on assigned bed and selected meal plan. Applicants may be assigned to a permanent or temporary bed. Residents assigned to a permanent bed space pay the published rate for the room type the resident checks into. Residents assigned to a temporary room pay the daily room rate for the temporary room. If a resident is later assigned to a permanent room, a prorated room type fee is assessed beginning the day the resident moves into the permanent bed space.
Bicycle racks are available for residents to lock up their bicycles. Residents are strongly encouraged to secure their bike with a Kryptonite bike lock as Fresno State Student Housing will not be held responsible for any lost, stolen or damaged bicycle. A bike repair station is available, located outside of the west entrance to the Atrium. A bike shelter is also available, located outside of the north entrance of the Atrium.

Residents schedule their check-out date and time in advance with a Residential Life Staff member from their hall to avoid improper check-out fees. Residents are responsible for all damage within their room unless the damage was listed on the Room Condition Report (RCR) at check-in. Any discrepancies, as well as missing or damaged items, will be billed. Common area damages or excessive garbage in the common areas will be charged to the floor or wing residents. Damage or garbage in suite living rooms or bathrooms will be charged to suitemates. (Residents are not required to pack up their belongings for winter recess, but must check-out with a Resident Advisor).
In Community Style Halls, men live on one wing and women live on another. Bathrooms are gender designated. In Residence Suites, men and women may be in neighboring suites; however, all residents within a suite are the same gender. (Exception: Fresno State Student Housing offers Gender Neutral housing.

(Returning residents only) The residence suites will have several suites designated as coed in Aspen, Ponderosa, Birch, and Sycamore. This is available only to returning residents. A bedroom will be designated as either male or female but men and women can share a two or three bedroom suite. The number of coed suites is limited and subject to approval by the Director of Housing. The men and women within the suite (3 to 6) will share the suite bathroom and living room. If after the first two weeks of classes you would like to move, you must follow the normal room change process and moving is subject to availability. If a resident from the coed suite moves, the suite must be converted back to a gender designated room. For more information, please call 559.278.2345.

During other hours, Atrium Desk assistants are available to provide assistance.

As a “community of students,” it is necessary that everyone living in the halls assumes responsibility for maintaining the buildings that they live in. The “Student Housing and Meal Plan License Agreement” states that under Terms and Conditions of Occupancy, paragraph III, that residents “…refrain from altering, disturbing, or damaging the housing facilities, furnishings, common areas and surrounding environment; pay individually or in combination with other Licensees, a reasonable charge for any such damage….” This means that you will be held responsible for damages to the residence halls or damages or loss of common area furniture unless any damage or loss can be specifically assigned to individuals. See Student Handbook for policy:
Residents who damage, accidentally or intentionally, any residence hall property, may be charged for repair or replacement and may be sanctioned by the Residential Life and Student Conduct Coordinator or dismissed by the Assistant Director of Housing. Damaging residence hall property destroys the community environment everyone is working to build and can increase the cost to live in the halls. This type of behavior will not be tolerated and could result in dismissal.
You should maintain your room (and suite, if applicable) in the condition it was when you arrived. Any damages beyond normal wear-and-tear not noted on the Check-in/Check-out Inventory Form and any damages which occur during your residency will be repaired and maintenance costs billed to you. See Student Handbook for the partial list of repair or replacement costs.
Common area damage policy reflects the need for each member of a residence hall community to accept responsibility for the condition of his/her building. The cost of maintaining our facilities must ultimately be paid by the residents living here. Through the implementation of this policy, it is hoped that common area damage will decrease, the overall living environment will improve, and reasonable living costs maintained. Your active involvement in this process is essential. Fresno State Student Housing has a policy of zero tolerance for vandalism in the halls. Anyone engaging in such conduct may be dismissed, subject to monetary sanction and/or otherwise subject to civil or criminal proceedings.
During the school year there will be many opportunities to become involved with educational programming. The Residential Life Staff will be presenting programs on topics such as sex, alcohol awareness, safety, time management, etc. All residents are invited and encouraged to attend.

If you are assigned to a permanent bed space, you will pay the published rate for the room type you check-in to. If you are first assigned to a temporary room, you will pay the daily room rate for the temporary room. If you are later assigned to a permanent room, you will pay the prorated room type fee beginning the day you move to the permanent bed space.
Room Assignments are done on a First come, first served basis, according to the time and date in which the completed on-campus living application packet is received. If bed is not available, applicant is placed on the Fresno State Student Housing waiting list.
Computerized room assignment software is used to assign residents based on
1. Returning resident
2. Date and time completed application received (subject to availability) and priority status
3. Gender match
4. Age comparison
5. Hall preference
6. Room occupancy
7. Roommate compatibility.
If bed space is available, assignments are made based on priority status and every attempt will be made to honor the preferences indicated on the Application Personal Profile; however, because some halls or room types are requested more than others, it may not be possible to provide one of the top choices.
If after the second week of instruction you or your roommate want to move to a different room, you must complete the room swap or room change process during designated weeks in the Fall and Spring semesters. Moves are subject to availability and approval of the Coordinator of Housing Operations.

Fall/Spring (academic year) housing applicants may request a specific roommate by completing the following steps:
1. Both roommates must write each other’s name and Fresno State ID Number on the “Application Personal Profile”
2. Both completed on-campus living applications must be submitted together
3. Both roommates must list the same hall/room/specialty area preferences
4. The completed applications must be submitted as soon as possible as roommate assignment is subject to double or triple room availability. Roommate requests are not guaranteed.

Recreational programming is also offered (some with additional fees). For example, there are occasional field trips to Yosemite, the coast and other places.
Due to the high demand for on-campus living and because historically some residents cancel their license agreements prior to opening, Fresno State Student Housing assigns applicants to temporary bed space. If you are assigned to a temporary bed, Fresno State Student Housing staff makes every effort to move you to a permanent bed space within the first 30 days. However, the temporary bed assignment may be for a full semester. Residents must move to the permanent bed as soon as they are notified. Residents assigned to a temporary room pay the daily room rate for the temporary room. If a resident is later assigned to a permanent room, the prorated room type fee is assessed beginning the day the resident moves to the permanent bed space
