2022-2023 Housing Application

2022-2023 Student Housing Application

The 2022-2023 Housing Application opened February 1, 2022.  Applications will only be accepted through the Housing Portal, which can be accessed using CSUSB Single Sign On credentials.  Assignments are made based on application submission date and space availability.  

STEP 1 – Consider your options

2022-2023 On-Campus Housing Communities
First-Year Students Coyote Village (traditional-style) 2 students per double room or 1 student per single (limited availability); community bathrooms; meal plan required
Returning (Continuing),  Transfer, and Graduate Students Arrowhead Village and University Village (apartment-style) 1-4 students per apartment; individual bedroom; bathroom per 1-2 residents, shared living room and kitchen; voluntary meal plans available

STEP 2 – Submit your Housing Application on the Housing Portal

You will be asked to complete the following information as part of the Housing Application process:

  • Demographic Information –  Verify your demographic information.  This is linked to to your student profile which can be updated through myCoyote.
  • Emergency Contact Information – You will be asked to provide the name, telephone number, and email address of someone you designate as your emergency contact person.
  • FERPA Information Release Consent – You will be able to identify a person (parent, guardian, designee) to access your CSUSB Housing records.  Housing and Residential Education will not disclose any information from your records to individuals not identified in the FERPA release section. Read more about your rights under FERPA.
  • Roommate Profile – You will complete the Roommate Profile questions about room environment and social interactions; your answers will assist in matching Coyote Village roommates or for selecting apartment-mates when choosing a room in Arrowhead Village or University Village. It is important to provide information that accurately reflects you in the Roommate Profile to ensure good matches!
  • LLC Preference – You will have the option to select a Living Learning Community.  Living Learning Communities are limited to space available in the assigned building and/or floor.
  • Gender Environment – Single Gender, Mixed Gender, and Gender-Inclusive Housing.  This section provides you the option to indicate what type of shared space you feel most comfortable by gender identity (where applicable). CSUSB Housing and Residential Education will not ask for any more information than is required to meet students’ housing needs and all information is confidential and protected by FERPA. 
  • Room Type Choice (First year students only) – The Coyote Village single room type choice is not guaranteed based on limited inventory.

If you cannot complete your Housing Application in one session, you may return to it and continue where you left off. Do not delay in completing your application, priority is based on the date and time that you complete and submit the application. You will receive a confirmation email upon submission of your application sent to your CoyoteMail (csusb.edu email) account.

STEP 3 – Find Roommate(s)/Apartment-mate(s)

You are encouraged to seek out a roommate or apartment-mate(s) while planning your 2022-2023 on-campus experience.  Talk with friends or use the roommate search feature in the application.  You are only able to request other students who have completed their 2022-2023 application AND have selected the same gender-based housing type. 

First-Year Students

Roommate requests can be made through the creation of a "Roommate Group" in the application.  You can create or join a Roommate Group at any point, but it is advised to do so before room assignments are selected or offered. Only those who accept invitations become group members.  The roommate selection process will be open May 2 through May 31, 2022 to allow the best match potentials following the CSUSB commitment date.

Returning (Continuing), Transfer, and Graduate Students

Before Room Selection, we recommend you visit our website and review each community; discuss with future apartment-mate(s) preferred Village, Living Learning Community, and gender environment. Room Selection times will be sent to you based on your application submission date. 

We encourage you to contact your roommate/apartment-mate(s) to start getting to know each other and coordinate shared space items in July.

STEP 4 – Room Assignments and Complete your Student Housing License Agreement (contract)

Check your CoyoteMail often!  First year room assignments and apartment selection time slots will be offered on a rolling basis based on application submission date and space availability.

Room assignments are given priority by application submission date and space availability. Room assignments will be emailed to your CoyoteMail starting June 1, 2022.
