Community Assistants

Remember, after you move in, your community assistant (CA) will be your primary resource for help or information.

New Resident Information

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.

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.

It’s one of the most common questions we get from new Lumberjacks: Do I need to bring a refrigerator?

That depends on where you live: Some of our residence halls already have them. If your room doesn’t come equipped with a mini fridge, you can bring your own – just make sure it’s under 1.8 amps or 5.0 cubic feet.

We also offer rental refrigerators for $50 per school year. Rental refrigerators are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Get involved

Living on campus means that you’re already involved in student life – you’re living it all day, every day. But there are many other opportunities to connect residence hall living with your personal interests.

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.

Learn more about other dining on and off campus.
