Campus Housing Villages

Nationally recognized in the Princeton Review for "Dorms Like Palaces", Sonoma State’s housing accommodations go above and beyond the typical dorm experience by providing suite-style housing, which includes individual bedrooms, bathrooms, and a shared common area. Suites are nestled in beautiful grassy areas that are close in proximity to indoor and outdoor community areas, making it the perfect location for students to gather, learn, and connect.
