Small Residential Communities
There are multiple residential buildings at Crown College, both close to and farther away from the academic and administrative buildings. Most of the residential halls are close to the college center, and our wonderful apartment community stretches across the little redwood creek canyon behind us. There is no general advantage to living in one building or area over another. The different living environments here at Crown accommodate the eclectic preferences of our diverse student population.
Our residential buildings contain single, double, triple and quad rooms. Single rooms are slightly more expensive than the others and generally go to continuing students. Most first year students live in doubles (two-person rooms) or triples (three-person rooms). If you are a new student, you will most likely live in one of these configurations.
Note: Questions about your housing bill, payment plans, or meal plans should be directed to the Campus Housing Office. The Crown Housing Office only handles room placements, room changes, housing cancellation requests, maintenance questions, lock outs, and other general questions relating specifically to Crown College.
