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.

*Financial Hardship: please contact REACH at housing@sonoma.edu if you are unable to make the Housing Down Payment in full at the time you apply.

Cancellations

If your plans change and you no longer plan to live on campus, please notify us at housing@sonoma.edu. The Housing Down Payment is 50% refundable until June 1, 2022; no refunds thereafter. Students who complete the application process and receive a room assignment will be charged $250 if they cancel after August 1, 2022 or fail to check in seven (7) days after the start of the semester.
