2014 USD Fact Book

LIVING ON CAMPUS Housing is available to students all four years, and is a requirement of the first and second year experience — unless they are commuting from home. Within the freshman residential facilities, floors and wings are gender specific and offer either semiprivate or community-style bathrooms. Upperclassmen and transfer students can choose from five uniquely styled apartment complexes. Graduate and law students are housed in Manchester Village and the Presidio Terrace Apartments. All first-year students participate in Living Learning Communities. In 2013-14, nine Living Learning Communities (LLCs) are being housed within the four residence halls designated for freshmen. LLCs bring students with similar interests — such as honors, sustainability and social change — together in the residence hall areas. Freshmen in the LLCs are able to share ideas, discuss different perspectives outside of class and enjoy the company of friends with similar passions; thereby becoming more engaged in USD’s residential community. This program is a partnership between the Department of Student Affairs and the College of Arts and Sciences. For upperclassmen, there are three different special interest communities — Honors, Sustainability and University Ministry — housed within their designated residence areas. This year, a total of 2,600 freshmen, transfer, returning upperclassmen, law and graduate students are enjoying the academic, programming, safety and convenient benefits associated with being members of the campus residential community. All student residents have immediate access to professional community directors, resident ministers and student resident assistants who are committed to enhancing their academic, social and spiritual growth. Campus Culture One of the best things about being a student at the University of San Diego is experiencing life on campus. The friendly and energetic atmosphere guarantees that there is always something to do, and someone to do it with. The active, thriving community offers plenty of opportunities to get involved with fellow students and residents from the neighborhood surrounding Alcalá Park.
