Additional Admissions Information

Students and Faculty construct an Art activity


Living on campus is the ultimate way for students to enhance their college experience. There are more than 2,500 bed spaces and three dining halls to accommodate both new and continuing students. Housing applications are generally accepted each March.

All first-time freshmen are required to live in campus residence halls during their first year at CSULB unless they are over 21 years old or will be living at home with a parent(s) or legal guardian(s) during their entire freshmen year. Exemptions will be considered if verification is presented for students who are veterans or currently active duty; students who are married, domestically partnered, and/or have legally dependent children; students who have been independent and not claimed by their parent(s) for two calendar years; students carrying five units or less per semester for the entire academic year; students with special circumstances, such as medical or disability circumstances.

For more information about on and off-campus housing, call (562) 985-4187, go to or go to the Housing Office at the corner of Atherton Street and Earl Warren Drive.
