Applicants must be enrolled in one or more regular SDSU courses with a valid RedID and in good academic and judicial standing to be eligible to apply for grad housing. Students enrolled in courses with SDSU Global Campus are not eligible. Exceptions to these requirements will be considered but must be requested in writing and approved by the Office of Housing Administration prior to the submission of the license agreement.

License agreements for grad housing are provided to students only. Family members, partners, and friends not enrolled at SDSU are not eligible to live in grad housing.
