A brief description of the themed housing:
Students have numerous opportunities to get involved at the Lyle Center, beyond taking our classes. Students can conduct research or demonstration projects that advance regenerative principles. The Center offers student housing for graduate and upper division students, and a number of employment opportunities are available each year. All of these opportunities are open to all Cal Poly Pomona students, regardless of their degree program. The Center offers housing for 20 students in one of its two dormitory buildings: Sunspace and Riverfront. The Center's hillside setting offers a peaceful environment surrounded by scenery of water gardens and fruit bearing trees. The Center is conveniently located within walking distance or a quick shuttle ride to other academic units on campus, the library, computer labs, dining areas and student union and. Housing is open to graduate and upper division students from any program at Cal Poly Pomona. Graduate students in the Master of Science in Regenerative Studies receive priority for reserving rooms. Although residents are not required to attend regenerative studies classes, they may choose to do so, or get involved in other opportunities for student participation at the Center. These facilities have a laundry room, study areas, recreation room/TV lounge, mailboxes and community kitchenettes. Satellite television service is provided in each room. Both of the buildings are co-ed and non-smoking. Housing at the Center is administered by University Housing Services. Regenerative Studies Program applicants interested in residing at the Center are encouraged to visit their website (university housing) and contact them early in the admissions process to ensure priority housing.
