Information about why you should live at SSU

Want to Live on Campus?

Current students can pay a housing deposit online through their Navigator account. This will demonstrate your interest in housing in the approaching semester and after housing assignments are finalized you will be sent your room assignment and roommate information. 

Why Live on Campus?

Academic Success

Students who live on campus have a greater opportunity to work collaboratively with their peers and develop increased motivation for academic success.  Research shows that residential students achieve greater academic success and interdependence than students who live off campus.


Living on campus puts you within walking distance of all your classes, the library, academic support services, the athletic complex, computer labs, the shuttle bus system, and your friends. The residence halls save you time and money by avoiding a lengthy commute each day.  

Endless Activities and Friendships

Looking for something to do? There's always something happening in your residence hall lounge, at the Ellison Campus Center, the Mainstage Theatre, the O'Keefe Center, and more. When students are asked what they remember most about living on campus, the first thing they say is, "my friends." Living in a residence hall allows you to meet people who are different from you and develop life-long friendships.
