Campus Housing: The only reason I didn't rate it "It's great" is due to the price of housing and the housing isn't as nice looking as other housing communities in other colleges

Campus Housing: Its very fun to live on campus, but sometimes people are rude upstairs when it comes to stomping too loud. There are quiet hours in the dorm but of course the rules are not enforced.

But the buildings are amazing and offer alot of space for the students to be in a comfortable environment

Campus Housing: Living in housing at California State University of Northridge can be quite peaceful, given the spaciousness of the facility. We are provided with a swimming pool, basketball court, tennis court, and so much more. The food is amazing and always makes me feel like I am home. However, my biggest concern is that the housing is far from my classes and that really takes a toll on me.

Campus Housing: The curfew sucks and people aren't very social.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Campus dorms are okay. They are well kept and clean all the time. The laundry rooms are rather small but everyone manages. There's only one laundry room per building and some buildings have up to four floors. The dorms are not close to campus. About a 15 minute walk but school provides a "tram" that has several pick up locations around the dorms which will take you to campus.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
