HOUSING

Apartments

When you think about student housing, you might envision a tiny dorm room where you and several roommates are stored for the night. The Apartments at University Park are a different approach to living on campus. They are comfortable, modern and within easy walking or biking distance to classrooms and libraries. The apartments are perfect for freshmen and returning students.

The Apartments come with the following amenities:

  • Two-bedroom, including one bath, furnished for four students
  • Living room and dining area
  • Private balcony
  • Most units come with kitchens. Residents in a unit without a kitchen must purchase a meal plan.
  • Electronic key card security
  • Wireless Internet and Ethernet
  • Cable TV options

We have detailed information for 2014-2015 on our Housing Rates page. You can choose to either make a full payment for the semester, summer session or pay in monthly installments. If you have further questions about rates, email us at housing@csun.edu or call (818) 677-2160.
