Housing registration for Summer Arts 2019 opens March 4.

Please check back then to register.


CSU Summer Arts participants who choose to live on campus will be housed on the Fresno State main campus in the Sequoia, Cedar, or Birch building. These buildings are within five minutes' walking distance to classrooms and facilities. The rooms are suite-style, with two or three single- or double-occupancy bedrooms. Each suite shares a bathroom and a common area with a small refrigerator and microwave. There are a very limited number of single rooms and these are booked on a first-come, first-served basis.

Your preference for accommodations are not guaranteed to be available. It is possible to request your roommate and rooms where all participants agree to live together may be mixed gender. For participants who do not specify a roommate, rooms will be booked with men and women in separate suites.

Linens are provided. You will be provided with a pillow, lightweight blanket, mattress pad, two flat sheets, pillowcase, bath towel, hand towel, washcloth, and shower mat. Linens may be exchanged once per week. There are pay laundry machines for personal laundry.

ALL ON-CAMPUS HOUSING INCLUDES A MEAL PLAN. The meal plan provides a wide variety menu, including many vegetarian options, and three meals per day. It is not possible to purchase a meal plan without staying on campus, but single meals will be available for purchase at the University Dining Hall.

ParkiNg on campus

You will be emailed a parking code good for use at a permit dispenser on check-in day only. You must purchase a parking permit during check-in if you will be leaving a car on campus. The parking office will be on site to sell permits at check-in. A student parking permit will allow you to park on campus in green lots designated as student/public parking. These cost $20 for July 1 to July 28.
