Residence Halls

CSULB has 18 residence hall buildings on campus and a off-site residential complex, accommodating more than 2,400 students. All halls are coeducational, and with the exception of a limited number of single rooms at Residence Commons, the rooms are intended for double occupancy. Students are assigned same-sex roommates, and bathrooms are not coeducational. A custodial staff maintains all bathrooms and public areas.

Room Furnishings

What do you need to bring? Not much. All rooms are approximately 15 by 11 feet and furnished with a bed, dresser, desk, chair, wastebasket, closet and mirror. Pillows and mattress covers are provided.

Residents must provide their own blankets, sheets (twin extra long), pillowcases, bedspreads, towels and study lamps. Refrigerators, microwaves, personal computers, stereos with headphones and compact televisions are also standard luxuries to consider.

Before you decide whether to bring all of these things, you may want to wait until you come to the campus and meet your roommate, and then together, you can decide on what you'll need. Sorry, we don't have storage space for additional items.
