Housing at SJSU

Campus Housing Options

 

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 college life, 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 who wish to live on campus must submit the following before May 1, 2014:

1. A completed online Housing application

2. A $50 non-refundable application fee

3. License materials

4. A $600 initial payment

 

Fall 2013 applicants who submit license materials, the non-refundable $50 application fee, and a $600 payment by Monday, April 1, 2013 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 April 1, 2013). We encourage you to apply early, as spaces fill quickly. License materials and a $600 payment are due for new SJSU Fall 2013 applicants by Wednesday, May 1, 2013. University Housing Services will continue to accept license materials and payments throughout the year until all spaces are filled.

Students who are not required to live on campus will be given housing assignments based on availability and completed application date.
