Second-Year Housing

On-campus living at USD only gets better the second time around. Spend your sophomore year living with your classmates in the Alcalá Vista Apartments (aka “The Vistas”), which are the home of the Second-Year Experience (SYE) program. You’ll have the opportunity to participate in programs and utilize services that are geared to the unique needs of sophomore students, both returning and transfer. Additionally, housing is available for second-year students in the San Buenaventura Apartments, Manchester Village and the San Antonio de Padua apartments.

One of the major benefits of living on campus is the convenient access to resident assistants, faculty and University Ministry members who are more than just residence staff; they’re also your neighbors. With such a wide range of resources, services and personal support offered, it’s no wonder why so many Toreros choose to stay on campus after their first-year living experience.
