Frequently Asked Questions

Who can live in this new student residence building?

  • On-campus housing at Santa Rosa Junior College is limited and in high demand. While living on campus is not required, it is also not guaranteed and offered on a priority basis and then a first-come, first-served basis. The Residence Life & Housing Office highly recommends students submit their housing application as soon as the housing portal opens to increase their chances of obtaining a space and avoiding being placed on the priority waitlist. Residents must be registered students with a minimum of six (6) credit hours per semester

What safety measures will be in place for residents?

  • The building is being built and designed with the necessary components to provide a comfortable living experience. A card access system is employed at the building's main entry, and no one may enter the SRJC student housing without a resident access card. Closed-circuit security cameras are also located throughout the building and at access points. 

What technology will be available to residents?

What is the difference between "submitting an application" and "signing a Residential Housing Agreement?"

  • When you submit an application, you are letting Student Housing know that you are interested in living in the SRJC Student Housing. There is no official or binding agreement between you and SRJC Residence Education & Housing Office with just your application. Fees associated with your application are non-refundable and non-transferable. When you sign a Residential Housing Agreement, you are signing a legally binding contract to reside in SRJC Student Housing for the full term of the Agreement, clearly listed on the Agreement. If during your occupancy, you cannot meet the requirements of the Student Housing Contract you signed, you must submit a Petition for License Agreement Cancellation form to the Housing Office immediately. Review the SRJC Student Housing Student Housing Contract carefully with anyone you need to consult about your decision, such as your parent or guardian.

What is the timeline for the project?

  • Approximately 352 student beds are scheduled for occupancy in the Fall semester of 2023
  • The Residence Life/Housing office is open and taking applications from interested students in Plover Hall room 535.

Where will the Student Housing Be Located?

  • The Student Housing will be located on the corner of Elliot Ave. & Armory Dr.

Will the cost be covered by financial aid?

  • If a student is attending Santa Rosa Junior College, any financial aid (i.e., grants, loans, scholarships, etc.) that is remaining after SRJC tuition and fees are paid will go toward paying the Residence Hall cost. This cost will be reflected on the student's SRJC bill. Therefore, any portion of the housing costs not paid by financial aid will be an out-of-pocket cost for the student.
  • Check out SRJC's Financial Aid site for additional resources for aid: Welcome to Student Financial Services | Financial Aid (
