CSULB housing refers to housing options for students at California State University, Long Beach. The campus has three residential colleges that foster learning and socializing in safety. As of October 2014, Hillside, Parkside and Beachside Colleges offer various living styles for freshmen, seniors, international students and students who seek quiet lifestyles, according to the institution's official website.
Hillside College is the closest residential college to the center of the CSULB campus. International House is a place for international students to call home. Hillside Suites feature three- and four-room suites with their own bathrooms in a coed setting. Two traditional residence halls house 204 students each. Parkside College is adjacent to a municipal park in Long Beach. Nine two-story buildings contain fully carpeted suites that have seven double-rooms with one large bathroom per suite. Each suite houses members of the same sex. Parkside College features faculty who live on campus to serve the tutoring and advising needs of students, notes the CSULB website.
Beachside College provides housing for more than 600 students in two buildings adjacent to the Pacific Coast Highway. These residence halls are close to golf courses, shopping malls, restaurants and parks. A full range of academic services are available, according to the CSULB website. On-campus living provides dining halls, academic advising, cable television, Internet access, shuttle service, tutoring and basic phone service. First-time freshmen under the age of 21 who do not live with parents must live on campus, if space is available.
