If your plans change and you no longer plan to live on campus, please notify us at housing@sonoma.edu. Students who have a change in plans and do not need to live on campus can cancel by December 15, 2021, to receive a 50% refund of the Housing Down Payment.  After December 15, 2021, you will need to notify the REACH department 30 days prior to the start of the semester to avoid being charged 1 month of rent.

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.
