Apply for Housing

We are Open for Fall 2021

College looks a little different right now, but we are open and will be here to welcome you home in fall 2021. Living on campus is a life-changing experience and a great way to take advantage of the full college experience.

Submit your Housing Application today! The earlier you complete the Housing Application, the better priority you will have for accommodation options!

Circle with number 1 in it Applications Open Now! Deadline to Apply: May 1, 2021

Log onto the ResidentWeb (sign in with your SSU login information) to complete the Housing Application and submit your initial $300 payment (payment is applied to fall 2021 housing fees). The 2021-2022 housing priority deadline for incoming and returning students is May 1, 2021.

Circle with number 2 in it Room Selection: Mid-May

Students who have applied for housing and accepted their admission to attending Sonoma State University will be able to make a room selection preference. Room types are not guaranteed and are based on inventory. Please check your email in mid-May for instructions on how to add a preference for a living community, room type, and roommate. Please note requests for roommates must be mutually agreed upon by all parties.

Circle with number 3 in it Room Assignments: Mid July

Keep an eye out on your email for your fall 2021 housing assignment! The assignment will include your village, building, community (if applicable), room type, roommate contact information (for all students living in your suite or apartment), mailing address, and move-in information. Assignments will be determined by guidelines set forth by the state, county, city, and university officials as it relates to COVID-19 and social distancing practices. We ask students to continue to be flexible as we navigate through these unprecedented times.

Circle with number 4 in it Cancellations

If your plans change and you no longer plan to live on campus, please notify us at  The Housing Down Payment is 50% refundable until June 1, 2021; no refunds thereafter. Students who complete the application process and receive a room assignment will be charged rent for thirty (30) days if they cancel after August 1 or fail to check-in seven (7) days after the start of the semester.


How It Works

Please note Housing Applications are accepted until capacity is reached. In the event that we reach capacity, we will continue to accept applications and payments and students will be placed on a waitlist. In the event that we are unable to house you one week after the semester begins, we will refund the payment in full.
