Housing: Missions A & B
Hi my name is Ashley and I'm from Honolulu, Hawaii. We're in the area of what students call “The Valley”. It's a residential area of campus and it's only about a five minute walk from main campus.
The Valley is where both freshmen and upper classmen live. Freshmen are required to live on campus and housing is available all four years.
Overlooking Tecolote Canyon are the Missions A suites. These buildings offer suite-style floors for freshmen with single and double rooms, 2 bathrooms, and a common living space to be shared by 8 residents. These buildings have a balcony view of the Sea World fireworks that light up Mission Bay.
Just across the cul-de-sac is the valley's other freshman residence hall, Missions B. Its layout is that of traditional style residence halls with 30 residents and 2 community bathrooms per floor.
Located in between Missions A and Missions B is Missions Crossroads, home to the housing office, laundry facilities, and study and TV lounges. Students can check out vacuums, DVDs, and board games free of charge and residents like to come to Missions Crossroads to meet up with friends for a study group, compete in a video game tournament, or grab a late night snack. Twice a month, the Residence Hall Association puts on a program called Waffle Wednesdays, where students can come and pick up a free waffle and put their favorite toppings on it. I love Waffle Wednesdays!
Also in the Valley is the San Antonio de Padua upperclassmen apartments.
