Housing Application

Housing Rates

  • What is the cost of housing?

    Housing rates are available on the Rates page. Rates very by room type, meal plan and building selections. 

  • How do I know when a housing payment is due?

    Housing bills are due on the 20th of each month. Visit the Making Payments page to view the freshman, sophomore or upper division housing payment schedule. Students who receive financial aid will have that aid applied to their student account. If a credit is due, it will first go towards tuition and then to any outstanding SDSU bills. 

  • How do I know if I qualify for a fee postponement?

    You will know if you are eligible for a fee postponement through your AidLink account. If eligible, fee postponement will display as a payment option when asked to make your initial payment in the license agreement process on your WebPortal.

Meal Plans

  • Are meal plans required?

    As a freshman living on campus, you will be required to have a meal plan. We offer three different meal plans to accommodate your needs, providing you the flexibility to eat when and where you want. You will have the opportunity to select your meal plan on the housing application and can change your meal plan during three designated meal plan change periods throughout the academic year.

    A meal plan will not be required for your sophomore year living on campus. However, meal plans are available for sophomore residents. Please note that sophomore meal plans cannot be changed once they are chosen.

  • Can I change my meal plan after the semester has started?

    Your meal plan may be changed at the Dining Services Office during the designated meal plan change dates.  Visit Meal Plan Changes and contact SDSU Dining at 619-594-7640 for questions.
