Transfer Residential Communities

Orientation and Transition Programs, in collaboration with University Housing, is pleased to offer an exciting living opportunity for transfer students. The Transfer Residential Communities, housed in Summit and Laurel Village – Alpine Halls, are a great option for transfer students who are new to CSU. These communities focus on easing your transition to CSU by enhancing connections with other students and the campus. They have all the convenience of living on campus plus the benefit of living with others who can relate to the transfer student experience.

To be a part of this great experience you must indicate your interest in living in one of these communities on the Housing Application.

The transfer floors fill up in the fall, but occasionally a limited number of spots become available in the spring semester. If you are starting in the spring and you are interested on the transfer floors, please contact University Housing to see if spots are available.
