We want your college student to be successful throughout their career at California State University Chico. Students who live in student oriented housing get better grades. This applies not just to freshmen but students of all levels in any area. They need a good infrastructure and support to gain this success. At The Post on Nord, we want to help support their productivity by giving them a fully equipped computer lab and study lounge at their fingertips. We want to keep them healthy with an on-site 24-hour state-of-the-art fitness center. We also want to help them relax and meet their neighbors by providing them with academic-oriented lounge areas located throughout the property. The Post on Nord meets every need that your student will encounter while in college. We believe in providing them excellent customer service so they can achieve everything they came to Chico for, in an enjoyable environment.
Individual leasing means peace of mind for you. Your financial responsibility is only for your student’s space unlike many apartments or rental houses where a joint lease is signed. If a roommate transfers to another school or moves out of The Post on Nord for any reason, you do not have to worry about having to cover their portion of rent. This is just another reason why The Post is a Chico State student’s best housing option!
On-Site Professional Staff

Our maintenance staff will respond to your student’s maintenance issues quickly and professionally. The Post on Nord offers 24-hour emergency maintenance as well so that your student’s comfort is not affected. The Post hires Community Assistants, who are local Chico State student employees that work in the office! They can assist with any issue you may have, including inputting work order requests, giving out packages and hosting multiple community-focused events each month. In organizing positive, interactive events, CA's are tasked with making sure your son or daughter is meeting their peers and maximizing their experience in the community!

Our amazing staff coordinates monthly resident events to keep them involved. These events range from pizza parties to karaoke nights, resume building classes to gaming tournaments and so much more! Each month, The Post on Nord will focus on a plan for your student with education oriented events, charitable events, and even guest lectures. Annually, The Post will have events such as a Welcome Back Party at the beginning of the fall semester, a Community Service event in the spring, and a large competition among the residents and staff, as well as, many holiday events throughout the year. We will also keep our residents connected to events going on at Chico State, as well as, events happening around town so they don’t miss anything!
