Overview of Village

Santa Cruz Village (SCV) opened in fall 2007 and is home to approximately 460 second-year students, as well as some upper-division students. Santa Cruz offers mostly two-bedroom, one-bathroom, furnished semi-suites generally shared by four students. Some suites may include triple occupancy bedrooms and be shared by five or six students. Each suite also includes a microwave and one or two mini-fridges. The suites include one bathroom and a separate vanity area. Each resident has an extra-long twin bed and mattress, three drawers, desk, bookshelf, chair, and lockable file cabinet.

Santa Cruz has excellent activity and co-curricular space such as a game room, an exercise room, ballet and art studios, sound resistant music practice rooms, and study, television, and computer lounges. Each student room has cable TV and wireless internet access.

Pictures and 360-degree views of SCV can be found on the campus virtual tour.
