Mission of the Division of Student Affairs

Placing students at the center of their educational experience, the Division of Student Affairs supports and enhances learning and the University community through quality activities, facilities, programs, and services.  

Vice President for Student Affairs Office

The purpose of the Vice President for Student Affairs office is to recommend policies and procedures that will ensure a coordinated delivery and assessment system of student services throughout the Division of Student Affairs (DSA), which includes Enrollment Services, Student Life, Housing & Residential Education and Athletics and Campus Recreation. This includes a comprehensive clearing system which tracks and reports budgets and expenditures; implements or manages special projects; produces and distributes internal and external student communication; and hires, trains and provides staff development for the DSA. The Vice President for Student Affairs office, in its support of the educational mission of the institution, also provides co-curricular education initiatives while coordinating program assessment and evaluation for all units within the Division.  

Housing and Residential Education

CSUCI is a very special place, and you get the very best of what our campus has to offer by living right in the center of it all on campus in Anacapa or Santa Cruz Villages. In addition to some of the newest and very best student residential facilities available, we offer a complete program with trained staff to support student success, relationship development, and full engagement in the CSUCI educational experience.

Santa Cruz Village (SCV) is home to freshmen and sophomores. SCV just opened in fall 2007 and is comprised of two-bedroom furnished suites shared by four students, and a limited number of single rooms. Each suite has its own large bathroom and entry way. SCV has excellent activity and co-curricular space for students such as a television lounge and two game rooms, an exercise room, ballet and art studios, sound-resistant practice rooms, study and computer lounges, and access to the New Student and Transition Center. Each room has cable TV access and the facility offers wireless internet access. Students in SCV enjoy meals at the newly renovated Islands Café, and also have access to common-area kitchens when they like to do a little cooking for themselves.  

Anacapa Village (AV) is available for juniors and seniors and consists of four-bedroom, two-bathroom apartments shared by four students, so each student has their own bedroom. Each apartment is fully furnished and includes living and dining room furniture. AV is home to our swimming pool and Jacuzzi, a regular gathering area for students. AV also has study rooms, computer labs, and the Anacapa Commons, a large activity space and television lounge.
