First year and second year students who live in SDSU campus housing are proven to academically out-perform their peers who live off campus. Research shows that the average GPA is 11 percent higher for residential students and 13 percent higher for students living in learning communities.

Because of this proven success, first year freshmen in the following communities are required to live on campus their first two years if they graduate from a high school outside SDSU's local admission area in spring 2017:

  • Athletes
  • Guardian Scholars
  • International students
  • Nursing
  • Out-of-state residents
  • Weber Honors College

All first year students who graduate from high school outside of SDSU's local admission area in Spring of 2018 will live on campus for two years.

How to Apply for On-Campus Housing

  1. The license agreement will be made available to you online via the SDSU WebPortal beginning in March. The license agreement is made available to admitted students who are required to live in on-campus housing.
  2. Once your completed License Agreement and $375 initial payment are received by the university, the Office of Housing Administration will send you an email acknowledgement and space confirmation. 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.
  3. Student housing preferences will be considered, but students will be assigned to a single, double, or triple space.

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, and a description of the various housing options.
