Sophomore Housing Lottery

Updated June 22, 2020

Fall 2020 Update

On-campus housing is available! If you would like to live on campus for the 2020-21 academic year, please complete your license agreement on the Housing Portal as soon as possible to reserve your space. 

Following physical distancing guidelines set by county, state and federal authorities, SDSU has suspended the live-on requirement for first and second-year students for the 2020-21 academic year. With the reduction in density, we anticipate we will be able to accommodate up to 3,500 residents for Fall 2020 out of our 7,000 total bed spaces. 

We will also reduce the density of our residential population and potential exposure to others by not utilizing the six (6) traditional residence halls with common/shared restrooms. Instead, we will only offer apartment and suite-style living communities. 

In an apartment-style community, residents have a kitchen, living area, and bathroom(s) in their unit. In suite-style communities, residents have a private bathroom(s) in their suite, and certain buildings also include a kitchenette and living area. In all cases, there will be no more than four (4) students to a restroom.

Following CDC guidelines for cleaning and disinfecting, Housing will implement practices to reduce the potential for exposure to COVID-19. This includes rigorous cleaning of communal areas twice a day, signage throughout the residential communities to ensure physical distancing, sanitation dispensers in building entrances and exits, as well as cleaning stations and protective screens at front desks. Additional information about SDSU’s response to COVID-19 is on the university’s public-facing site: 

The Sophomore Housing Lottery will no longer take place as planned. With taking building and room type preferences into consideration, you and your roommate (if applicable) will be assigned to a space based on availability.
