Family Communities

Several affordable and convenient on-campus housing options are available to students with families. The family housing neighborhoods include a community garden, Pete’s Playground and are in close proximity to Preciado Park.


Our three family housing communities are located in South Campus.

  • Mail: All mail is delivered to USPS lock boxes located within the community.
  • South Campus Residential Life Office : Staffed by our friendly RD’s and CA’s, this is where you will go if you have any questions regarding living in south campus.
  • South Campus Operation Center:  This is where you will pick up large mail packages and also where to go if you lose your key.

Who Can Live in Student Family Housing?

To qualify for Student Family Housing (SFH), there must be a registered student in the household as part of a family unit. Family units include married couples, married couples with children, single parents with dependent children, domestic partners, and domestic partner with child(ren). Consideration is also given to non-traditional family units such as adult siblings living together without parents, and/or the presence of extended family members.
