Submit a housing application as soon as possible

The Housing Application will be sent to all admitted students, or students may download the online Housing application. Applications must be mailed to the Housing office with a $40 check or money order made payable to CSUEB. After applications have been received, along with the $40 application fee, Housing will verify admission to the University, and a Housing license packet will be made available for students to access online in early summer. 

Housing will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis by receipt of the license packet contract; however, it is strongly encouraged that interested students complete the housing contract and make the initial payment by July 1 for maximum consideration.
