The core of Escondido Village includes 638 one- to three-bedroom flats and townhouses in one- and two-story buildings called “low-rises.” Purposely designed to avoid an institutional feel, the buildings are arranged in clusters of two or three amidst grassy fields, picnic areas, and communal play areas. Thanks to a large private donation, new lawns, fences, and paths were installed throughout EV during 2008 and 2009.  The apartment buildings are in the process of being renovated (several each year) to install new wall heaters, energy efficient double-paned windows and sliding glass doors, new flooring and paint.

Common Areas

Meeting Rooms  

Escondido Village residents may reserve, without charge, the Village Center, next to the EV Administration building, without charge. The Cottage Room in the EV Administration building is available for reservation by Community Associates (CAs) for community events only. Each meeting room has a kitchen, restroom(s), tables and chairs, and a piano.  Please visit the Escondido Village Housing Front Desk page for details on eligibility and the reservation process.

Laundry Rooms  

Some EV apartments include hookups for students who want to bring their own clothes washers and dryers, but they must be Energy Star rated. One laundry room is located next to the Escondido Village office, and additional laundry facilities are located in the high- and mid-rise buildings. Rent includes Student Housing’s "Just Like Home" laundry program, which gives residents unlimited use of these washers and dryers; no coins or cards required. Residents in EV are assigned to specific laundry rooms (based on location) for capacity and volume purposes.

Computer Clusters

Residents of Escondido Village low-rise apartments have access to two computer clusters: one in Hulme 1st floor and one in the lobby of Blackwelder. These computer clusters are equipped with Macintosh and Dell computers, laser printers, and various software applications. All computer clusters can be accessed with your student ID or courtesy card.
