Housing at SJSU
Campus Housing Options for Exchange Students
Housing costs in the Bay Area and San José are some of the most expensive in the nation. The local market is also very competitive. While you are not required to live on-campus while on exchange at SJSU, we strongly advise that you do.
University Housing Services
We strive to provide supportive and affordable residential learning communities that promote academic success and individual development. Our living-learning communities help ease the transition to life at SJSU, serve as an extension of the classroom, and increase awareness of community responsibility. Located on the main San José State University campus, the residence halls are just minutes from classes, the library, recreation and dining facilities, and downtown.
Students who live on campus have the opportunity to get involved in social gatherings, cultural events, intramural sports, community service, and a wide range of other campus activities. You also have access to the Resident Activity Center (RAC) located in Campus Village Building B, which offers a gaming area with foosball, ping pong, and pool. The RAC also has four meeting rooms with a flat-screen television and DVD player so you can watch the latest movies with your friends and classmates.
University Housing Deadline
All students beginning studies in Fall 2017 who wish to live on campus must submit
the following before May 1, 2017
1. A completed online Housing application
2. A $50 non-refundable application fee
3. License materials
4. A $600 initial payment
Fall 2017 applicants who submit license materials, the non-refundable $50 application fee, and a $600 payment by Monday, May 1, 2015 will be processed for roommate matching and the ability to establish an Installment Payment Plan with five installments (the number of payments decreases if submitted after May 1, 2015). On-campus housing is guaranteed for exchange students, but only if you apply in a timely fashion. We encourage you to apply early, as if you apply after the deadline we cannot guarantee you a place.
