This page is meant to provide prospective transfer students with information regarding housing options at East Stroudsburg University.
ESU’s on-campus housing inventory includes five traditional residence halls, two apartment complexes (University Apartments and University Ridge), and two suite style residence halls. Transfer students interested in on-campus housing must make an on-line application. Housing offers are made starting in early April, so please set up and check your ESU email and your ESU portal regularly for the information.
Traditional housing consists of double and triple room bedroom units on long corridors, with common bathrooms. There are common area laundry and kitchen areas. Students living in traditional housing must purchase a meal plan.
University Apartments offer three single bedroom unit apartments, with a full kitchen, unfurnished living room, two private bathrooms, and air conditioning. University Ridge offers four single bedroom units, with a full kitchen, furnished living room, washer and dryer in each unit, two private bathrooms, and air conditioning. Students living in both of these apartment units have the option but are not required to purchase a meal plan.
Suite housing offers five different unit types. Each unit type comes with a private bathroom(s) and kitchenette; a food preparation area without appliances, and air conditioning. Students living in the suites must purchase a meal plan.
All rooms in traditional housing are single gender within the room. However, students living in the University Apartments, University Ridge, or in any suite housing units that have single rooms, may request to reside in a co-ed unit.
