Step 4—Apply for Housing and Submit Housing License Agreement

All admitted first-time freshmen from outside SDSU's local admission area are required to live on campus for their first year.

  1. As an international freshman, your required housing license agreement will appear in the "Admission Status" section of your WebPortal account.
  2. The Housing 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.
  3. You are required to submit the housing license agreement and a $375 non-refundable initial payment by the May 1 Intent to Enroll deadline or your admission will be canceled.
  4. Student housing preferences will be considered, but students will be assigned to a single, double, or triple space depending on availability.

The Housing website provides detailed on-campus housing information. Please visit the website for more information regarding the housing application process, living communities, meal plans, and costs.

Residence Halls

In addition, living on campus at SDSU means freedom from frustrating commutes, costly utility bills, and daily meal preparation.
