Get Involved In Your Hall

There are so many ways to get involved throughout campus and it all starts in your residence hall. Students spend time in our green spaces, study in our lounges, and hop into programs happening in and outside the halls. Resident Assistants (RA’s) host programs all year on campus. No matter the day or time, there’s always something exciting happening nearby.

General FAQ's

  • Research in student development and our own student experiences indicate that residential living supports student transition to a university. Residential living for new students may ease student transition to the CSP environment and provide significant support for the inherent challenges of heightened academic rigor and increased independence in the first year of college.

  • Luther and Wollaeger: These two halls close during Christmas/Winter break in December. These buildings do not have access to a kitchen and therefore, do not stay open. First-year students living in these halls must make arrangements over this break time.

    Holst and Hyatt: These two halls stay open from move in day in August to move out day in early May! Students living in these buildings can stay, at no extra cost, throughout breaks. Holst and Hyatt residents have access to a kitchen area and therefore, are able to cook for themselves throughout breaks. We do require students to sign up for break housing. Emails are sent prior to the break period by Residence Life staff.

    Note: Dining Hall provides limited service over breaks and is completely closed over Christmas/Winter break.

  • A resident assistant (RA) is a student staff member working and living in a residence hall. Resident assistants provide support, guidance and assistance for resident students. RAs also engage residential students in meaningful experiences to learn about themselves, about others and develop leadership skills to use after graduation.

    How can my Resident Assistant (RA) be of service to me?

    RAs are your first point of contact for any questions you have about CSP. They are also great for connecting you with other staff members, student organizations, or offices to help you get connected. They’re a great person to go to if you are having any problems or just need someone to talk to. They also help build a community on your floor or in your pod through programming – they create fun and helpful bulletin boards and put on events for your floor and your whole hall, such as pizza nights, spa programs, and sports watch parties.

If you feel that you need to opt out of a meal plan because of an accommodation, you should reach out to Student Accessibility Services (SAS) [email protected] to talk about your options.

  • Flex Points (which is what we call our meal plan dollars) expire at the end of each semester.  You will have the opportunity to purchase items in bulk through the dining hall towards the end of each semester to use up your extra points. You also can donate unused points to Comet’s Cupboard food shelf.

  • Our staff hand-picks all roommates who do not have a roommate request. There is a section on the housing application for you to complete that we use to help match you with a good roommate – we really encourage you to be honest in this section.

    You can also attend one of our Admitted Student Day events to meet other incoming students!

  • Residence Life will not share information with parents, friends, or family members unless it is an emergency and information needs to be shared for the safety and security of the resident.

  • This depends. We would discuss the number of credits you’ve completed and your age. Based on those items, we will determine if our first-year halls might be best for you, or if we think you would fit well in our apartment-style housing.

  • Holst Hall: There are 68 four-bedroom apartments, 9 two-bedroom apartments, and 7 studio apartments in Holst Hall. Studio and two-bedroom apartments cost more and are not guaranteed as space is limited. Apply online and specify your desired living option.

  • The best option is to inform your RA about any work or repair needs. They will be able to submit the proper documentation and inform professional staff.

  • There are no keys for the residence halls – all access is on the student ID. If students lose their Student ID, they must pay $10 at the cashier’s office and bring the receipt to the Security Office to print a new ID. If the student ID card breaks, a student can bring the broken card to the Security Office to get a new card at no charge.

  • Quiet hours for all halls are Sunday–Thursday, 10:00 p.m.– 9:00 a.m. and Friday-Saturday midnight–10:00 a.m. During these hours, music, voices, etc, are to be contained within the room or apartment. Courtesy hours are always in place, and noise levels need to be kept at a reasonable level.

    You can call Security for an escort across campus anytime or call them for any other needs.

    CSP Ministry is available to meet students as well. You are also welcome to come by the Residence Life Offices in Meyer 111 – we would love to get to know and support you.

There are lounges where you can do homework together, play games, or watch something on the TV. We also have in-hall workout facilities you can access.

    Finally, our residence life staff put on programs regularly, ranging from outdoor cookouts to Bob Ross painting sessions to de-stressing kits. If you have ideas for a program or event that would be good in your hall, reach out to your RA to share it.

  • All residential students can connect to the University Wi-Fi using their student credentials. For information on the gaming wi-fi, please contact the Information Technology Help Desk at [email protected].
