3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I enjoyed living in the dorms and I highly recommend living in the freshman buildings. If it weren't for the freshman year experience program, I don't think I would have enjoyed CSUN as much as I did. The staff and RA'S kept us very engaged and informed about school, with mandatory counseling meetings and weekly hall meetings. I felt very safe in my dorm. There isn't much parking, but it's still worth it to lie in the dorms. The food is not too bad, and there is a good atmosphere.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus and have never been in the dorms.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: On-campus housing is actually a bit far from campus and requires a shuttle or walking. The housing is average, with no special perks. Many students who live on campus complain about the noise/music from other students living on campus.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: If you get the apartments, those things are HUGE. Two bedrooms with a huge bathroom and you really get to know your floor. However, it is EXTREMELY strict. You have to get checked in my security after 7:30 and they patrol the halls all night and write you a report with the cops if you're too loud.

2 College Senior

Campus Housing: CSUN housing lacks space. I understand it is a student housing, but it is not a slum, neither it should be. I was astonished to see how congested every rooms are. Also, it is student housing, not a damn prison. administrators need to let their guard off for a change.

If it's a bustling residence life you are craving, CSUN might not be for you. A small percentage of freshmen live on campus, with an even smaller percentage of upperclassmen overall. The good thing about living in the dorms, though, is that students get to pretty much live in college hotels. There are swimming pools, balconies, and other swanky amenities—well, "swanky" in college terms. Students also have living learning community options, where they can live with people who share a common interest. 

While the school provides luxurious means of living, it can be pretty expensive to live in the dorms. On the other hand, it can be just as expensive to live on your own in off-campus housing, so it just depends on the situation. Plus, some students complain about the lack of privacy.
