Residence Life

Student Housing Options

Whether living on campus, near campus or commuting from a distance each day, Cleveland State students have a chance to experience unique engaged living and learning opportunities that can only be found at an urban university. CSU sits in the heart of downtown Cleveland, easily accessible by foot, automobile or public transportation.

Commute from Home

The majority of CSU students commute from home. Students who commute each day can save money on living expenses and still immerse themselves in the fun that is the CSU college experience. To help ease the cost of the commute, each CSU student receives an RTA U-Pass that allows him/her to ride public transportation free of charge while enrolled at the university.
