Impact Apartments

Impact. A living learning community at University Village

What are the IMPACT Apartments?

The IMPACT Apartments are intentionally designed for residents that are interested in integrating their career and academic paths with their living environment.  Do you want priority registration and weekly events that are geared towards your success?  This community gives students an opportunity to live and connect with other students who share interests, academic goals, and personal goals.  The IMPACT Apartments embrace Cal Poly Pomona’s “Learn by Doing” by engaging students with discussions, experiences, relationships, and fellowships.  And you can WIN prizes through the year!!

Please contact
Kirk Bernal ( for more information


There is space available for 28 IMPACT Residents in one of our Phase III apartment buildings.  After we fill all available space, we will take additional applications for our waitlist.  Applicants that are WAITLISTED or NOT SELECTED for the IMPACT Apartments AND still interested in living at the University Village MUST go through the normal University Village Licensing process beginning in April.
