Is There An Empty Space In Your Apartment? New Residents Move In August 17 & 18
If there is an empty bed or room in your apartment, please be sure to keep it clear and clean. New and returning students are moving in this week.
Please welcome your new housemates by keeping the common areas clean and make room for them in your bedroom, bathroom and the kitchen cabinets and refrigerator. Please keep vacant spaces clear of your belongings. If your belongings prevent residents from moving in you will be charged and subject to disciplinary action. If necessary, Housing and Residence Life staff may move your belongings in order to clear the space for other residents.

Money Matters

If you will no longer be attending Cal State LA or no longer require on-campus housing, you must complete the Cancellation and Refund Form as soon as possible to cancel your agreement and have your charges adjusted. A $50 cancellation fee and prorated housing charges through the day we recontract your space will be applied to your student account. If we are unable to secure a new student and your space remains vacant, you are financially accountable for the full terms and conditions of the 2018–2019 License Agreement.
