HSU's 50+ on-campus houses are available to single graduate or family students, or students who may need special accommodations. Family students include any married student or student with a dependent. Students with special accommodations include but are not limited to physical disability or students who have already completed their 4 semesters of required residency and/or are 21-years old and have received approval from the campus disability offices for an emotional support animal (ESA) or certified service animal.

- Campus House Amenities
The campus houses are all located within six blocks of the HSU campus and are patrolled regularly by the HSU Police Department. These units are unfurnished, with the Student Resident supplying their own furniture. The kitchens come equipped with a refrigerator/freezer, oven, and stove. It is important to note that most of the campus houses have central heat but no air conditioning. The Student Resident(s) will be expected to provide and service their own window units.
- Campus House Utilities
Electricity, water, and gas services are all connected in the University’s name and the Student Resident will be billed monthly for these services to their student account in the HSU Business Office. If cable or Internet service is desired the Student Resident can arrange for these services on their own with any provider that they choose, but may not have anything affixed to the unit or any new holes drilled into the exterior of the unit. In addition, these services cannot be billed to the Student Resident’s account in the Business Office. Many of the campus houses are located together in a central block on Anderson, Caldwell, and Vogel. These central block houses are not billed for water each month.
