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 three, four, or five bedrooms. Bedrooms provide single- and double-occupancy accommodations. Apartments are separated by gender unless the student specifically requests gender inclusive housing.

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

• Aliso (Freshmen)
• Buena Vista (Freshmen)
• Corralitos (Continuing)
• Dover (Transfers)
• Estrella (Continuing)

• Foxen (Continuing)
• Gypsum (Continuing)
• Huasna (Continuing)
• Inyo (Freshmen)

* Placements vary from year-to-year based on freshmen class size. The assignments above are for the 2017-18 academic year.

    Residents delight in amenities like the Village Plaza in the heart of the community, complete with Jamba Juice, Einstein's Bros Bagels, Tacos-to-Go Grill, and the Village Market. Nearby, a community center and leisure pool offer a chance to connect and unwind, while two adjacent parking structures make parking easy.
