2019-2020 Housing Application

New & Transfer Student Housing Selection

After a future student has been admitted into CSU, the next step is completing the housing application and paying the $75 initial application fee. The housing application opens on April 8th and the DAY a student pays the initial housing payment will determine their room selection time - not based on the time they pay.

Returning Student Housing Selection 

The Housing Selection Process is different for returning students compared to the process for new students. The Office of Residence Life cannot guarantee on-campus housing to students who have met their Residency Requirement. The housing application opens on April 15th this also includes pre-room selection. Moving into a Residence Hall can be an exciting but daunting experience. Here, we will attempt to address the questions you may have concerning the move-in policy, what to bring, what not to bring, important dates, etc.
