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

​Now accepting applications

STEP 1: Complete Online Housing Application and License Agreement

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.

STEP 3: Consent Form: Students Under 18 Years of Age

  • If you are under the age of 18, a parent or guardian must sign a Consent Form  and mail, email for fax it to Housing and Residence Life.

STEP 4: Tuberculosis (TB) Clearance 

University policy requires that all residents provide proof that they are free of tuberculosis or not at high risk for tuberculosis each year. Please complete a Tuberculosis (TB) Screening questionnaire on the Student Health Center Patient Portal by July 17, 2023, and annually thereafter. To access the Patient Portal, log into MyCalStateLA and click the "Student Health Center Patient Portal" icon, Clearances/Forms and then TB Screening.

  • Note: Most students who do the TB Screening Questionnaire (now online) do not have to take a TB skin test, negative chest x-ray, or negative QuantiFERON test. Only those students at higher risk of TB infection which includes travel to or living in South and Central America, Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East; prior positive TB test; or exposure to someone with active TB disease.
