Before You Arrive

Mail and Address:

New Residents will be issued a mailbox number and a combination, or key if you live in University Village at Check-In. This information will be sent to you via your Horizon e-mail account. This mailbox will be your mailing address for your entire stay in Pioneer Heights. If you change apartments during the year, or from year to year, this mailbox never changes. Your new mailing address will include this mailbox number and all future mail should be addressed as follows:

First Name, Last Name

1901 Harder Road, Box # <your mailbox number>

Hayward, CA 94542

**Please note that, in the mailing address above, the “Box” number is your mailbox number and NOT your room or apartment number!**

Please do not mail items to Pioneer Heights prior to move in. Due to the amount of mail we receive on a daily basis, we are unable to hold packages for future residents.  The mailroom will be open during the move-in weekend.

Bay Card:

The CSUEB Bay Card is used both on Campus and in Housing for a variety of different services. Residents of Pioneer Heights must have a special Housing Bay Card to access their suite/apartment, laundry room, and community rooms. New residents, who did not receive a Bay Card at Orientation, will be able to pick up their Housing Bay Card at Check In. Returning residents can continue to use their existing cards. Your card will begin to give you access to your room/apartment/suite upon check-in. For more information about the Bay Card, please visit our Bay Card website.

Cable TV Equipment:

Residents living in University Village receive Direct TV. In each UV apartment, there is one Direct TV receiver in each apartment. All other residents will be able to receive the Comcast / X-Finity Campus service. This service can be received through the resident’s smartphones, tablets, and computers. Residents that would like to use a traditional TV, additional equipment is required, such as:
