It’s Lumberjack time
Living on campus will allow you to experience college life while being surrounded by an instant network of friends. All first-year students live in the First Year Commons and will be a first-year student, except for a few community assistants to provide help when you need it. Transfer students will live in upperclass residence halls.
Welcome to your first day of Lumberjack life!
Whether you’re a first-year freshman or a returning upperclassman, you’ll find that move-in day is one of the most exciting parts of kicking off a new school year! Get ready to settle in, meet your new roommate and get to know the SFA campus.

Lumberjack meal plans
Lumberjacks fuel their bodies and brains at two dining halls and several retail restaurants on campus. Meal plans are required for everyone living on campus (unless you live in Lumberjack Village Building 3). These plans range from 14 meals a week to unlimited passes, including Dining Dollars for on-campus restaurants like Chick-fil-A or Panda Express.
Our community guidelines and residence hall policies are meant to keep every student safe while providing a supportive, positive on-campus experience. You can find a complete set of community guidelines here.
