Welcome to the Villages at CSU Channel Islands

Santa Cruz Village 

Welcome home!

CSU Channel Islands (CI) is a very special place – and you get the very best of what our campus has to offer when you live right in the center of it all in Anacapa or Santa Cruz Village!  We offer a complete residential education program and trained staff to support student success, relationship development, and full engagement in the CI experience.

In the Division of Student Affairs, Housing and Residential Education supports the mission of our University by providing facilities, services and programs to ensure students live and learn in a secure, comfortable and accessible environment.  Our student-centered approach is designed to promote academic success, personal growth, responsible citizenship, and service to the community.
