Poly Canyon Village Apartments


Located on the north end of campus, Poly Canyon Village offers a vibrant community for continuing and transfer students. Each apartment has a full kitchen, a living room common area, two suite-style bathrooms, and four, or five bedrooms. Bedrooms provide single- and double-occupancy accommodations. Apartments are separated by gender unless the student specifically requests Queer-affirming housing.

Poly Canyon Village is made up of nine free-standing apartment buildings:

• Aliso 
• Buena Vista
• Corralitos 
• Dover 
• Estrella

• Foxen 
• Gypsum 
• Huasna 
• Inyo 

 

    Residents delight in amenities like the Village Plaza in the heart of the community, complete with Einstein's Bros Bagels, Taco Bell, and the Market Poly Canyon. Nearby, a community center and leisure pool offer a chance to connect and unwind, while two adjacent parking structures make parking easy.
