About Residence Life

Residence Life Overview

The Residence Life Program is committed to providing a safe and healthy living environment that is supportive of a student’s academic pursuits while contributing to personal growth.

Our main campus is located in the four corners area nestled in the beautiful Chuska Mountain Range in rural Northeastern Arizona. Diné College provides nine residential halls, accommodating a maximum of 251 vacancies per semester for students at the main campus in Tsaile. Unfortunately, there are no housing accommodations for our community campuses at this time. Only Full-time students committed to 12-credits or more per semester during the Fall/Spring Semesters and students committed to 6-credit hours or more during the Summer Sessions are eligible to apply for student housing.

Student Hall Housing
Single housing accommodates single adult students without dependents. Each room is set for double-occupancy and consists of two twin beds, two dressers, two desks, and two closets. There is a shared bathroom between every two rooms.

Student Family Housing
Twenty-eight (28) units are available for students with families at the Tsaile Campus, consisting of two and three bedrooms. All units are furnished with a queen-sized bed and dresser in the Master Bedroom, a bunkbed and one dresser in each bedroom. Other furnishings include a desk, kitchen table/chairs, and living room furnishings (sofa, end table, and coffee table). There are two (2) American with Disabilities
Act (ADA) compliant units to ensure accommodations for individuals with disabilities.
