Saginaw Valley State University, located in central Michigan, is the newest of the state's 15 public colleges and universities. Established in 1963, the institution makes its home in the small town of University Center, so named for presence of SVSU and Delta College, which lies just three miles away. As the name may indicate, University Center is a community that supports student living with its tranquil atmosphere, impressive natural surroundings, and list of recreational resources. Student housing is located less than six miles from the Saginaw Bay, and less than one mile from the lakes and waterways that flow through the Saginaw Valley. Today, about 8,000 undergraduates and 3,000 postgraduates enroll at Saginaw Valley State University, and the vast majority reside in off campus housing in University Center.
Student living at SVSU is divided into five academic colleges: The College of Arts and Behavioral Sciences, the College of Business and Management, the College of Education, the Crystal Lange College of Health and Human Services, and the College of Sciences, Engineering and Technology.
Off campus housing near the school is in high demand as Saginaw Valley has become one of the fastest growing universities in Michigan, and the incoming freshman classes continue to increase in size. The institution has expanded its campus to meet the needs of new students, adding an Engineering center, Health and Human Services building, the Saginaw Valley HealthCare clinic, and additional student housing within the past five years.
Fewer than 3,000 of the university's nearly 11,000 students live on campus. In the off campus community, students gain access to attractions, such as the Crow Island State Game Area, Bay City Country Club, and the rows of business that stretch from Lake Huron and down the Saginaw River, toward the center of town.
