Living on Campus

The Department of Residence Life at Columbus State University is dedicated in ensuring that your time living with us is like no other. We strive to be a first choice experience for every student that attends CSU. With our convenient housing locations and staff's focus on your success, both inside and outside the classroom, you are on your way to not only building memories that will last a life time, but one that will end end with you successfully graduating from CSU!

With our highly motivated and involved professional and student staff working together, we do everything we can possibly do to meet the needs of our students. By living in our residence halls, you will be given the opportunity to become involved in several of our on campus organizations and potentially be able to hold leadership position in those organizations. Students who live on campus have also been found to do better academically than those students who do not. The endless resources provided to our students who live on campus will give you all the tools you will need to graduate, and graduate on time!

These are just a few of the benefits our students receive during their time living with us at CSU. Our goal is to ensure you have a positive, and memorable, experience!

Welcome to CSU and welcome to Residence Life!
