Temporary Transitional Housing Program

The Campus Assistance, Response, and Engagement (CARE) Office facilitates the Temporary Transitional Housing program. In this program students who are unable to find permanent housing, or abruptly lose their housing are sometimes able to be housed temporarily on campus. This program is subject to availability.

Humboldt Housing and Residence Life

There is a wide variety of on-campus housing options to suit your needs: apartments, suites, or traditional residence halls. Each comes with a list of amenities, facilities, and other features to make your life a little easier. You can even live alongside students who share common interests in one of our Theme Housing options.
