How to Apply (Current Students)

Now accepting applications

The Office of Housing and Residence Life invites current residents to reserve their housing assignments for the Academic Year 2023-24 (Fall 2023, Winter 2024, Spring 2024).

Current residents get priority. However, housing placement is not guaranteed and we encourage students to complete these steps by the deadline indicated.

Complete and submit the Academic Year Housing License Agreement for 2023-2024

Create your student profile on the Housing Portal. The student profile is a list of questions that will help us identify roommate and/or housemate matches.

While completing the online Housing Application, you will be redirected to Transact. Submit the $40 initial payment and click the “Return to the Housing Application” to finish the application.

If you are unable to pay the fee on Transact, you have the following options:

  • Mail  (Check or Money Order):  Include on the check or money order your name, campus ID number (CIN#), and “2023-2024 Academic Year Housing Initial Payment.” Mail it to: Cal State LA, One Stop Financial Services, Student Services Building #2380, 5151 State University Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90032. 
  • Foreign Currency:  Please go to  Flywire  to make your payment using a foreign debit or credit card, international wire transfer, or other local payment options from your home country. First-time users will be asked to create a  Flywire  user account.
