Do not worry about meeting people; Fresno State Student Housing’s Residential Life Staff runs over 360 social and educational programs each year geared towards giving residents the opportunity to meet others.

Academic Success

Resident Life Support

We want to support you as much as possible. The atrium help desk is open 24/7 and key-card access ready to answer any inquiries or provide you with anything you may need. Community hall desks are staffed with residential life staff at night and supervise community halls. There are also blue emergency pillars everywhere around campus that will call campus police in an emergency.

Campus Police

Fresno State Student Housing utilizes an electronic key card system to ensure security for our residents. Our Public Safety Assistants (with Resident Advisors and University Police) patrol the halls in the evening and early morning hours to make you feel secure in your environment. Residents can also easily access Fresno State’s on-campus escort service for transportation to and from night classes and campus events. Furthermore, each room comes with a lockable safe where residents can store valuable belongings.
