We are very excited to welcome you to campus and have been working hard to make necessary adjustments to your Learning Community experience in order to meet the guidelines put forth by health officials and the university. With lessons learned though the 2020-21 academic year and potential announcements made related to adjustments for Fall 2021, we want you to know that Learning Communities are committed to fostering a great experience for our students.
One modification to your Learning Community experience relates to designated housing that may have been previously communicated through the application process or marketing materials. University Housing continues to follow the direction of the university and local health officials to determine the best way to move forward with assignments. Normally, Learning Community students are required to live in designated floors within specific residence halls; however, given the direction University Housing must take in keeping student’s health and safety a priority, we are unable to guarantee students will be assigned to a specific hall. Regardless of where a student is assigned within housing, they will still be able to participate in the Learning Community, and we will work closely with our University Housing partners in supporting the residential experience of students within their assigned hall. The campus continues to learn and evolve from this year and looking ahead to the coming fall, in partnership with other residential learning communities and University Housing, we are committed to providing experiential components that will positively contribute to your CSU experience.
Finally, more information from your Learning Community will be sent to students regarding any orientation dates and other requirements.

This residential community is located in Academic Village (AV) – Engineering Hall and offers Engineering students an academically supportive and fun environment.

Residents can also take advantage of nightly tutoring (Sunday-Thursday), general advising support in the form of weekly advising drop-in hours, a live-in “Faculty-in-Residence” and live-in Graduate Academic Coaches (GACs), as well as several Engineering Peer Mentors who are returning students living in the hall to support the students with their personal and professional development. Although space is probably available in the designated residence hall, there is not a guarantee students admitted to this community will be placed in AV – Engineering Hall for the 2021-2022 academic year.
