Theme Houses

Arroyo Vista is a theme-sponsored housing community serving continuing undergraduates and transfer students. Each house is made up of 8, 12, or 16 bedrooms, a large kitchen, living and dining room, and separate study room space. For fall 2020-21, each bedroom will be occupied by a single student to promote physical distance. Occupancy limits will be reassessed at the end of fall quarter, and students will be given advance notice of any changes planned for winter or spring quarters. In addition, some houses also offer a two-room suite with private living room and bathroom. Academic, Cultural, and Identity theme sponsored houses are co-ed, while Sorority and Fraternity theme sponsored houses are single gender. Residents prepare their own meals or can purchase a voluntary meal plan for use in on-campus residence hall dining facilities.
