DISCOVER Discover how living on campus can add to your overall college experience. Meeting new friends, making yourself “at home” in your room, and getting involved with everything YSU has to offer are all just the beginning of your college life. Housing & Residence Life’s residence halls offer the perfect atmosphere for making the most of your college experience. By choosing to live on campus, you gain a feeling of being connected to the University. You are among students who can relate to what you are feeling as you begin this new part of your life.
Beginning your college career is an adjustment, but the benefits of living on campus will make the transition easier. You will be in the center of it all. Classes, the student center, Andrews Recreation and Wellness Center, the YSU Bookstore and a variety of restaurants are all just steps away from our residence halls. You’ll have the opportunity to relax and enjoy it all, while making friendships in your residence hall community that will last a lifetime.
AMENITIES We want you to feel at home when you live on campus in the residence halls. Thatâ€™s why we make great efforts to make living in our communities comfortable, convenient and all-inclusive. Accommodations for each student in every room include an extra long twin bed and mattress, a desk and a chair, a wardrobe or closet, a dresser, and blinds on the window. For studentsâ€™ comfort, all rooms have individually controlled heating and air conditioning. In addition, all residence halls have wireless high-speed Internet access and basic cable. Students may also purchase optional HBO and other premium or digital cable channels. Add designated study spaces, free laundry with online laundry room alerts, computer labs with printing capabilities, kitchen facilities, TV and game rooms, music practice rooms (in Cafaro and Kilcawley Houses), designated resident-only parking lots and Penguin Shuttle stops at each building, and you have everything you need to enjoy life on campus. One of the most convenient aspects of living on campus is no hidden costs. You donâ€™t have to worry about paying monthly rent, utility, Internet and cable bills, buying furniture, stressing about maintenance issues, or constantly buying groceries. Your room and board costs include it all.

All on-campus services are free to YSU students, however, lab tests done off campus must be paid for by the student. Appointments can be made by calling Student Health Services. To make an appointment or for further information, please contact Student Health Services at healthclinic.ysu.edu or call 330.941.3489.
SUCCESS According to YSU student surveys, students who live on campus versus those who live off campus or commute: • Discuss course topics, ideas, or concepts with a faculty member outside of class more often • Worked with a faculty member on activities other than coursework (committees, student groups, etc.) more often. • Explained course material to one or more students more often • Asked other students to help explain coursework more often Students who live on campus at YSU are more likely to get involved in extracurricular activities and learn valuable educational, social, and leadership skills. This involvement helps create a feeling of ownership and belonging. Research shows that students who live on campus obtain higher gradepoint averages than those who commute or live off campus. Across the nation, those college students choosing to live on campus are more satisfied with their college experience and are more likely to graduate than their commuting peers.
Residence halls have been shown to contribute to higher levels of faculty-student interaction and peer support, better academic and social integration, greater satisfaction and commitment, and higher college retention for students living in residence halls than for their offcampus counterparts.” Journal of College and University Student Housing Wang, Arbolea Shelley & Walen

Academic LIVING -Learning Community
AT Y O U N G S TO W N S TAT E U N I V E R S I T Y
Our Academic Living-Learning Communities (ALCs) provide unique environments where select groups of students share common residential and learning experiences. Based on academic majors, our ALCs create intentional links between academic, social, and residential experiences.
ACADEMIC LIVING-LEARNING COMMUNITIES
Academic Living-Learning Communities are special, designated residence hall communities that bring college learning into the everyday lives of students. They offer students the chance to live with others who share similar majors and have courses together. Communities provide students with opportunities to interact with faculty from the college outside the classroom. Students who reside in an Academic Living-Learning Community typically have higher GPA, higher retention, higher persistence, report greater satisfaction and closer tie to the university, interact more frequently with peers for academic work (study groups), and interact with faculty and other campus resources more frequently. Our Academic Living-Learning Communities are staffed by a full-time professional administrator who works collaboratively with faculty, in hall staff and resident assistants. Together this team integrates both professional and personal interests to enhance the academic and social experience at Youngstown State University.
OPPORTUNITIES EXCLUSIVE TO ALC RESIDENTS
Each Academic Living-Learning Community will participate in monthly events with faculty from the college as well as additional events planned by the Resident Assistant based on floor member interest. At least one service project connected to the academic theme of the ALC will be planned and offered. Finally, each ALC will be provided with the opportunity to participate in a trip that connects the livinglearning experience with their chosen academic theme.
• Living with students who share similar interests and challenges • Access to peers for study groups, mentoring and leadership experience • Special events and on-campus programming • Opportunities to explore off campus resources • Collaborative academic opportunities • Networking prospects exploring potential careers and internships
It is an honor and privilege to be a member of an Academic Living-Learning Community. Spaces are limited. Students who demonstrate a commitment to academic success, intellectual curiosity, civic engagement and lifelong learning should plan to apply by the priority deadline by checking off interest on the housing application. Students must be declared major in the ALC they preference. Students who preference an ALC will get priority access to choose a room within the ALC housing. The Colleges that have academic learning communities are: • Beeghly College of Education • Bitonte College of Health and Human Services • College of Creative Arts & Communication • College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences • College of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics • Williamson College of Business Administration
Cafaro House also reserves space for Honors students to live within their own community. Events for the Honors Community are planned in collaboration with the Honors College. Honors students of all majors may live together in the Honors Community. To participate, students must be accepted into the Honors College through their own application process and mark this as their preference on the Housing Application.
Housing & Residence Life has also reserved spaces for students who have yet to declare a major to live in community with other undecided students. Events are planned for these students to expose them to a variety of major and career possibilities. In addition, discussions on strengths and interests will be held to help the students in this learning community to focus their decision on a potential major. housing.ysu.edu
INVOLVEMENT Housing & Residence Life provides students with events and activities throughout the year that give them opportuet involved in extracurricular activities.
In addition to YSUâ€™s Andrews Recreation and Wellness Center and intramural programs, extracurricular leadership opportunities, and Student Activities events, Housing & Residence Life offers students a wide range of social and educational activities such as Alcohol Awareness Week, Family Day, Tunnel of Oppression, and the Music in Dining Series. Resident Assistants also plan programs that include everything from community service events to study skills and time-management workshops to Super Bowl parties.
It all starts with getting involved in the residence hall community. Lasting friendships are built within our residence halls. There is an entire community built in each residence hall that provides our students with social opportunities that will help to round out their college experience.

LEADERSHIP Housing & Residence Life is always looking to provide leadership opportunities on campus. One opportunity is to work in our residence halls. Many students choose to work while they are in school, but they drive to jobs off campus and spend extra time and money doing so. We offer our students the opportunity to work on campus right in our residence halls in a familiar environment with people they know while gaining leadership experience as well. Our resident assistant positions are the perfect way to gain extensive leadership training and experience. Our desk attendant positions provide students with the chance to be a resource to fellow students and be a known presence in the residence hall. YSUâ€™s Residence Hall Association is another great way for all residents to get involved and be leaders in the residence halls. The Residence Hall Association (RHA) is a member of an international organization which connects residential student organizations on over 350 campuses in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Spain, and Australia. RHA seeks to create an enjoyable living community for residents, present fun and informative programs, provide resident input about housing policies and developments, and take care of the needs of the students.
Safety is a priority at YSU. In fact, Youngstown State University prides itself on consistently being one of the safest campuses in Ohio.
RESIDENCE HALL SECURITY Cafaro, Kilcawley, Lyden, and Wick Houses have a front desk that is staffed 24 hours (with police officers from midnight to 5 a.m.). Exterior residence hall doors are locked in the evening. Weller House exterior doors remain locked at all times. All guests are required to sign in and leave a valid ID at the front desk. In addition, all guests must be accompanied by their hosts. Residents are encouraged to lock their doors when they leave their rooms unoccupied, and each door is equipped with a deadbolt. Room door lock changes are mandatory when a resident loses keys. All residence halls have modern fire protection including sprinklers and smoke detectors. In addition, every residence hall is equipped with state-of-the-art exterior and public-area video surveillance cameras to monitor safety.
CAMPUS SAFETY It is important that all YSU students feel safe while they are on campus. The YSU Police Department is committed to the safety and well-being of each of our students. They can be seen patrolling campus 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in patrol cars, on foot, or by bike. They also oversee the Student Security Service that provides students an escort across campus. Whether it is after dark and a student wants to feel safe or a student is on crutches and needs assistance getting to class, the Student Security Service is available. Campus is also equipped with a blue light and emergency phone system. To help students get from one point on campus to another in the evening, the Penguin Shuttle runs late hours. YSU is also equipped with a campus-wide mass notification system that includes a public announcement system as well as the Penguin Alert program. Penguin Alert is the emergency notification text messaging and email system for Youngstown State University. In the event of an emergency, a message will be sent to the mobile number and/or email registered with the system. Students, parents, faculty and staff are encouraged to register. This service is provided by YSU at no cost; however, message and data rates may apply.
SAFETY 9 Youngstown State University
SUPPORT One of the best reasons to choose to live on campus is the strong network of support that Housing & Residence Life offers each of our residents. We are eager and excited to be a part of your on-campus experience. We are here to support you while you live in our residence halls. Each floor/wing of the residence halls has an assigned Resident Assistant (RA). RAs are upperclass students who have undergone thorough training and are charged with creating a strong and valued community on their floor/wing. RAs also serve as invaluable resources to residence hall students. The full-time professional staff members who work and live in each of the residence halls are called Housing Coordinators. Housing Coordinators supervise the RAs and front desk of their residence hall. They attend to the needs of the residents, handle emergencies, and keep the facilities safe, clean, and maintained. There is a professional staff member on call twenty-four hours a day, seven
days a week. Housing Coordinators typically hold a masterâ€™s degree in student services and have extensive training in all aspects of their position. In addition to the live-in staff, Housing & Residence Life also has a full central office staff that includes full-time professional staff, administrative staff and graduate students. It is the goal of all Housing & Residence Life staff to support the academic mission of the University and therefore offer as much support to our residents as we possibly can. The Office of Housing & Residence Life is located on the first floor of Kilcawley House and is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Please let us know how we can help you while you are living with us.
CHOICE All residents of University Housing (with the exception of students living in Weller House) are required to participate in the residential meal plan. When it comes to using the meal plan, we understand that our students want choices. That is why every meal plan option offers traditional meals as well as the flexibility of Pete’s Points and Flex Dollars. Youngstown State University Dining Services provides an exciting and innovative meal program for the residential community at Youngstown State University. You have a variety of restaurants to choose from, all conveniently located within walking distance of our residence halls, that offer meals for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even late night. Students can also dine on campus and at select off-campus locations using their Pete’s Points. Restaurants such as Jimmy John’s, Hot Head Burritos, McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Cocca's Pizza, and Subway all participate in the Pete’s Points program. Dining on campus provides the social experience essential to campus life. It gives you the opportunity to gather with friends, take study breaks, hang out, relax, and unwind after a hard day of classes and activities. When you dine at Youngstown State University restaurants you will enjoy comfort, convenience, outstanding food, and an inviting atmosphere all designed especially for you.

APPLY HOW TO APPLY
THE IMPORTANCE OF
Room assignment time slots for incoming students are assigned on a firstcome, first-served basis. The single most important factor in determining when you can choose your room assignment is the date you complete your housing contract and pay your security deposit. The earlier you apply, the better the likelihood of getting your building and roommate preferences. This is particularly true for residence halls in high demand, such as Lyden House. Only students admitted to YSU may apply, and itâ€™s a good idea to apply as soon as you are sure you want to live on campus in University Housing. However, please be sure you are certain you want to live in University Housing because the security deposit is non-refundable if you choose not to attend YSU or not to live in University Housing. The Office of Housing & Residence Life begins accepting online applications for University housing on November 1 prior to the start of the academic term. Students may apply for the start of summer term, fall term, or spring term.
For your convenience, the Application for University Housing can be found online at http://housing.ysu.edu. 1. Click on "Apply to University Housing" from http://housing. ysu.edu. 2. Log in to the YSU Portal using your user name and password. 3. Choose "University Housing Application" from the menu on the left-hand side of the screen. 4. From the Housing Portal click on the Application tab to begin your housing application. 5. Follow the steps in the Housing Portal to complete your housing materials and pay your security deposit. Please call the Office of Housing & Residence Life if you have any questions: 330.941.3547.

WHAT RESIDENTS ARE SAYING
My experience in the residence halls has been extremely positive. My roommate has turned out to be my best friend and I know he will be in my life for a long time. Living in the residence halls has made me so much more open to talking to others that I normally wouldn't and it forces me to get to know the people around me, some of whom have knowledge and skills that I can rely on or call upon in the future.Â I would encourage students to live on campus for the experience. Living on campus has gotten me so involved in group and organizations that I wouldn't have if I was attending classes as a commuter student. Dylan Anders Cafaro House Resident
