Home Away From Home

Living on campus isn't a requirement at SVSU but our cardinals are ready to unpack, share memorable moments with new roomies and develop lasting bonds forever. Those friendships are not the only reason over 70% of our freshmen choose to stay on campus, it's also because SVSU is ranked #4 in the nation and #1 among all U.S.A. public universities for the best college dorms!

Beyond our modern housing and campus facilities, there's an entire list of food franchises and dining services at your beck and call. From Starbucks and Subway to Panda Express and moreā€”the options are limitless! These, along with the vast recreational options, student clubs and organizations that enhance your experience outside the classroom.

So, use those cardinal wings of yours to fly... meet new people, gain independence and build life-long friendships long after you leave the first place you called home all on your own.
