Can I take a tour of the building before I apply or move in?
We are so excited to show off our new residence hall. Unfortunately it is still under construction and there aren't enough hard hats to go around. However, once the building is open, we'll be more than happy to give you a tour. 

Why are the Lona Vista Apartments closing?
Lona Vista will be closing at the conclusion of the Spring 2016 quarter so that we can begin demolition and construction on a second student housing building opening for Fall 2017!

Can I use my financial aid to pay for housing?

What if I’m not able to make the full quarterly payment?
A deferred payment plan is available for students who would like to separate their quarterly payment into installments.

What if I need to arrive early?
