Students Having Fun

Welcome to Chicago State University Office of Housing & Residence Life (HRL). Here at Chicago State University we strive to offer the most engaging residential experience enriched with diverse living and learning opportunities that foster academic growth. We achieve this by providing academic, social, cultural and personal developmental support through programming and student engagement.

 Our Residence Hall is a three-story  coeducational  building that houses approximately 330 students in suite-style living. Our hall provides spacious living quarters, three lounge spaces for studying, programming & fun. The hall also has an on-site laundry facility equipped with washers and dryers, as well as a 24-hour computer lab with printing capability for your late night studying needs. 

With 150 double rooms, we provide a room with adjoining bathrooms and 24 single rooms with private baths; in addition, ADA rooms are available. 

Each room comes furnished with beds (frame and mattress), dressers, desks, chairs, closet space, cable and phone connection, as well as Ethernet and Wi-Fi access. All rooms are equipped with smoke & heat detectors and water sprinklers for your safety.  All suites are equipped with units for controlling air and heat operation. In the center of the Residence Hall, you will find our landscaped courtyard with trees, flowers, greenery and barbeque grills, great for warm Chicago days 

You will find that our Residence Hall is staffed 24-hours a day, by professional and student staff. The main entrance to the building welcomes you with our friendly residence hall staff ready to assist with your housing and campus questions and concerns. Our front desk has temperature monitors and video surveillance to assist with our efforts in providing a safe and secure community and we are proud to be one of the safest campuses in the city of Chicago. 

During the academic year, students have an option to live on campus for 8 months during the academic year, during which the students can utilize the on-campus meal plan which is a part of the housing Agreement. As we strongly encourage students to use the required meal plan, we have vending machines in the hall for late night snacking. The  Residence Life Community Living Standards can be found in the Student Handbook located in the CSU student portal and online via the University housing website.
