Residency Policy

At California Lutheran University we are fortunate to guarantee housing for all full-time undergraduate students. The University views living on campus as an important part of a student's complete educational experience. Full-time students (12 or more units per semester), enrolled in a traditional undergraduate program are required to live on campus through their Junior year (90 or more units). Senior standing students can still choose to live on campus. All students who live in University housing are making a commitment to abide by campus policies, as outlined in the student handbook.

Exceptions to the policy:

  • students who are married
  • 23 years of age or older
  • students living with their parent(s)/legal guardian(s) within 30 miles of the campus

Students may petition the residency requirement after 4 semesters of on-campus living by picking up the appropriate form from the Residence Life office.

Meal Plans!

Did you know that the meal plans have been redesigned to fit your needs? Based on student feedback, Sodexo now offers more flexibility with your meals (they roll over!) and more dining options (including a 4th meal!). Questions? Look here! Also, there are some brochures located at the top of the Dining Commons or you could just ask one of us! Happy dining!
