Your Life at SUA

Residence halls with palm trees


Soka’s 10 residence halls aim to create a positive environment beyond the standard necessities “dormitories” often provide.

Soka understands the importance of dining as part of the total experience of living on campus, which is why we’ve partnered with Bon Appétit to create a custom dining experience.

Additional Services

Mail Center

Located on the 3rd floor of the student center, the Mail Center provides the same services as USPS (except for money orders) and receives and ships items from other carriers such as FedEx and UPS. You can buy stamps, ship packages and letters (domestic and international), and pick up your mail. Resident students have a personal mail box: to receive mail in the proper destination the sender must include your unit number in the address.

Shuttle Services

We offer a FREE shuttle service for students to get around town. The shuttle operates on a circular route that stops along three major plazas near campus every 30 minutes. If students need to go somewhere outside of this normal route, they may submit a special request. However, the destination must be within a 5-mile radius of the university. Transportation to and from John Wayne Airport is also provided seasonally on designated dates.
