Sonoma State University

Get to know us

Located in California’s premier wine country one hour north of San Francisco, Sonoma State is a small campus with big ideas. With a tradition of promoting intellectual and personal growth, leadership opportunities, and technological proficiency, SSU offers its students a friendly, safe and informal atmosphere in a beautiful campus setting. Currently, campus housing accommodates students in both apartment and residential suite-style facilities.

While SSU generally accepts all qualified students who apply from high schools in its service area, 80 percent of the freshmen and 55 percent of the junior transfer students come from outside the North Bay region. With 34 percent of the student body living on campus, it is one of the most residential campuses within the California State University system.

Sonoma State University is a sustainable campus
