All admitted first-time-freshmen from outside SDSU's local admission area are required to live on campus. In addition, all first-time freshmen participants in the University Honors Program are required to live on campus. The university continues to highly encourage all students to live on campus at least two years while studying at the university.
How to Apply for On-Campus Housing
- Indicate your interest in on-campus housing in the "Admission Status" section of your WebPortal account. This will tell us you are requesting an on-campus housing license agreement.
- The license agreement will be made available to you online via the WebPortal beginning in March. The license agreement is made available to students who: 1) are required to live in on-campus housing; 2) have indicated interest in on-campus housing; and 3) have been admitted to SDSU.
- Once you receive the license agreement, your priority for on-campus housing and living choices is determined by the date your completed license agreement and $375 initial payment are received by the university. If you are required to live in on-campus housing, you must submit the license agreement and $375 initial payment by the May 1 Intent to Enroll deadline or your admission will be canceled.
- Student housing preferences will be considered, but students will be assigned to a single or double space depending on availability on a first-come, first-served basis.
If you are looking for housing options while you attend SDSU, you will find information and assistance at the Office of Housing Administration (OHA). Visit their website for information on the housing application process, a description of the various housing options, and virtual tours of the residence halls.
Residential Learning Communities (RLCs) at SDSU are designed to help first-time freshmen succeed academically and make friends. Visit the RLC website to learn more about the variety of programs offered.
