Living Off Campus
Living off-campus creates new opportunities, new responsibilities, new relationships, and new dynamics. Whether you need to prepare yourself for the ‘big move’ or remind yourself of your neighborhood and community responsibilities, check out the off-campus housing listings and read more about living off-campus.

Furthermore, if you are living off-campus, you can always participate in on-campus dining plans. Yes, dining plans tailored to your needs.

Living On Campus
The heart of the residential living experience is manifested through Residential Learning Communities (RLC): Alpha, Communitas, Da Vinci, Education for a Sustainable Future (ESF), Loyola, Modern Perspective, Unity, and Xavier. You can find more about them and other on-campus living options at Housing and Residence Life and find out what is cooking in the Benson student union at Dining Services.

What to do Away from Campus
Whether you live on campus or off of the main campus, there are many local attractions to make your life more enjoyable in the Silicon Valley. There are also a variety of transportation options, such as the Bronco Bus, for students without cars.
