Housing Information for Incoming Students

Whether you are moving into Chi Rho or one of our many other residential halls, Concordia University Irvine is dedicated to providing the finest residential experience to our students. Receiving the best liberal arts education is part of the mission of Concordia, and things such as our on-campus library, computer labs, and our Student Success Center are a few ways in which we make an effort to create this environment. However, there is also a time for students to relax and enjoy the many amenities offered on campus including ping-pong and our CU Active fitness center. Additionally, there are many opportunities to get to know other students and to get involved through student leadership programs or intramural sports. Overall, the Office of Residence Life department is committed to making sure our students receive a great education, while enjoying the many benefits associated with living on campus.
