How do I apply for housing?

What’s the housing app for?

At CSU, we require all first-year students and transfer students with fewer than 15 post high-school credits to live on campus in one of our residence halls.

So how do you pick the right option and roommate for your college experience?

First, you’ll need to fill out a housing application. You’ll gain access to the application with your CSU eID after being admitted and paying or deferring your enrollment deposit. Filling out an application after you’re admitted allows you to secure a spot, give input about who your roommate may be, and indicate your top preferences.

It’s worth noting that the housing application requires a $350 deposit that’s separate from your enrollment deposit. The housing deposit is waived for students who receive an enrollment deposit deferral.

What happens after I fill it out?

Once you fill out a housing application and pay your housing deposit, you will officially be on the list and in the running for assignment.  Housing decisions begin in March and continue on a rolling basis thereafter. Remember, the sooner you fill out an application, the better chance you’ll have of getting one of your top preferences.

As daunting as it may be to fill out the application, we’re here to help you make the best decision. Not sure which options are right for you? Learn more about each of your hall choices.
