Advocate students will be housed in Valley A. Students living in Valley A enjoy close proximity to Missions Café and Missions Fitness Center. This housing area is located in what students call “The Valley,” which is the largest residential community on campus, and home to first-year students, sophomores, and upperclassmen alike. Please note that Valley A has single, double and triple (limited) rooms. Each floor is a suite of 8 residents, with two shared bathrooms with shower, toilet and sinks. All residents in the suite share these bathrooms, regardless of the room occupancy type.

Begin quote Starting college is an experience that may cause both excitement but also some apprehension. The LLC program at USD is a unique, community-based first-year experience that I encourage all of you to take advantage of and connect with like-minded peers on campus. The Advocate LLC revolves around the theme of social justice in our lives, and I am very excited to help guide you through a great year filled with special Advocate events! – Samuel Dene, Facilitating Residential Assistant for Advocate
