Valley A (Formerly Missions A)

Valley A LLC: Collaborate and Cultivate

Please note that Valley A has been adjusted for the 2020-21 academic year to all single rooms. Each floor is a suite of 4-6 residents, with two shared bathrooms with a shower, a toilet and sinks. All residents in the suite share these bathrooms. 


Missions A Aerial - Res Life

The Valley A complex offers suite-style living, providing campus housing for approximately 140 residents, and is coed by floor. There are twelve, three-story buildings with each floor housing 4-6 residents in single rooms. The suites have a furnished common space and two bathrooms.  These bathrooms must be cleaned by the residents. Each resident has an extra-long (80") twin bed, closet, chest of drawers, and desk with chair. Each room has wireless internet. These units are located along the edge of Tecolote Canyon and some have views of Mission Bay. A Community Director, ten Resident Assistants, and a Resident Minister reside in Valley A. The University Alcohol Policy designates Valley A as a no alcohol living area regardless of age or class status.

Valley A was recently renovated with new flooring (all tile flooring, no carpet), new furniture, and new bathroom vanities. The new furniture offers added benefits, such as electrical outlets in both the bed frames and the desks,  and a beautiful, wooden design. 
 
Please note, the height of this bed is not able to be adjusted (bed risers do not support these beds), and the beds come with built-in storage drawers underneath (no need to bring storage bins for under the bed!).
