Student Housing Application Process 2022-2023

Thank you for your interest in residing on campus at Cal State Northridge. We look forward to having you join our community!

2022-2023 Application Steps

As COVID-19 health and safety concerns begin to moderate, we are optimistic that we will be able to house more students in our residences. That said, the Student Housing application process for the 2022 – 2023 Academic Year may be impacted by the continued COVID-19 health and safety guidance provided by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH). The uncertainties around timing and allowable occupancy configurations may result in the need to make changes to the standard application process going forward. We will share any updates on occupancy configurations as we receive them throughout the remaining spring and summer months.

Follow the steps below to apply and complete your housing application for the academic year 2022 – 2023. Applications will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis.
