New Student Process

FAQ for New Students:

What will I need in order to complete the application?

  • Your login for MyState
  • Your housing preferences (including building preferences, roommate preferences, and living-learning community preferences)
  • Credit card information to pay the $75 confirmation fee online

Things to keep in mind when applying for Housing: 

  • Living Learning Communities:
    • Living-Learning Communities at SDSU provide an environment for residents to connect their academics with life outside the classroom. Students who are accepted to live and participate in these communities have the opportunity to live with others whose academic interests match their own, be supported both academically and socially through intentional programs geared toward their learning community, and interact meaningfully with faculty and staff members.
    • For more information about the LLCs offered at SDSU, please visit the Housing & Residential Life website.  
    • Please note if you sign up for an LLC and you are approved for your preferred LLC it will become your first preference and will take priority over your hall and roommate preferences.
  • Roommate Selection: 
    • You can search for possible roommates and invite them to room with you or you can accept random selection based on your profile.
    • Please note that roommate requests, and all selectable housing options, must be mutual to be honored. While we try to accommodate preferences, not all requests can be honored.
    • If you have ACCEPTED a “Roommate Request" it does NOT GUARANTEE a room assignment together. While we try to accommodate preferences, not all requests can be honored due to space and availability. 
    • If you are requesting to live with a Current Student at SDSU please email sdsu.reslife@sdstate.edu, please know this is not a guarantee, but a request.
    • You are NOT required to choose a preferred roommate. If you do not have a roommate request, please use the “Continue” button at the bottom of the page to proceed within the application.
    • Roommate Selection opens February 4, 2019 at 10:00 a.m., you will be able to log back into your housing application to complete this process.  
  • Housing Preferences:
    • As Housing and Residential Life works to find the best possible housing assignment for your preferences, we want to know what matters most to you.
    • If you opted for a Living Learning Community (LLC) and are approved that will become your first preference, regardless of what you preference above. If you have a roommate request and they are not in the same LLC you will not be matched together, as the LLC requests becomes your first preference
