Internet Service

Students in the residence halls can access the Internet through the housing wireless network. Please note that the residence halls do not have access to hard wired stations. In order to connect to the wireless there are a few steps that must be taken. Our wireless network is hidden so that only students may have access and not the rest of the community. For instructions on how to set up the wireless connection, visit this page. For more information on how to connect to the wireless network and/or wireless network policies, please contact the Unified Service Desk at ext. 4130.


The University provides housekeeping services in all public areas including bathrooms, lobbies, and lounges Monday through Friday. Residents are responsible for keeping their own room clean.

Residents  of Vista should note that their bathrooms and living rooms are not considered public areas. Consequently, they are responsible for keeping those areas clean.

It is student’s responsibility to maintain a clean environment. While housekeeping will provide basic services, students are asked to clean-up after themselves and limit excessive trash/messiness in all public areas. Residences, floors, or wings found to have excessive trash or messiness may be charged for extra cleaning services.


Kitchenette facilities are available for use in all halls. The kitchenettes are a shared space and include a microwave, sink, and community refrigerator. While students are not allowed to keep any food preparation equipment (toasters, coffee makers, etc.) in their rooms, they may store these items in the kitchenette areas. Please note that toaster ovens and cooking equipment with open elements are not allowed in student rooms. Vista residents will be able to find shared microwaves in the laundry rooms.

Housekeeping will mop and wipe down kitchen counter tops twice a week. Students are responsible for washing their own dishes.

Laundry Facilities

All of the residence halls are equipped with “Smart” washing machines and dryers. “Smart” machines means that residents will be able to use their debit cards or credit cards to do their laundry. “Cash” laundry options are not available. A wash load costs $1.25 and a dryer load costs $0.75 cents.

Lockout Procedures

Residents locked out between the hours of 8:00AM and 5:00PM may call the Housing Office at (909) 448-4052. Residents locked out between 5:00PM and 8:00AM can call the RA on Duty.

The University of La Verne is committed to recycling. Each residence hall floor/wing has one blue recycle bin. The blue recycle bin can be used for any form of recyclable material; the items do not have to be separated (i.e. paper, glass, aluminum, etc.), but the materials must be clean. Food and other trash are not permitted to be thrown away in the blue bins; separate trash cans are available on each floor/wing for that purpose. Students are strongly encouraged to recycle.
