Application Process: Transfer Students
Entering in Fall Quarter
Transfer students who are admitted for fall quarter shall, AFTER submitting their Statement of Intent to Register (SIR), receive a housing contract offer. Soon after submitting their SIR, students will be notified by email that they may begin the online housing application process. Application instructions will be included in the email, and are summarized below. The deadline to complete the housing contact is the same as the SIR deadline.
Note: incoming students cannot apply for student housing until they have submitted their SIR and received the housing application email; the transfer student application process typically is open during mid-April through May.

A video walkthrough of the Fall Quarter transfer student housing application process is available to those who desire additional information.
Entering in Winter or Spring Quarter
Incoming transfer students who are admitted for winter or spring quarter are eligible to live in Student Housing Apartments, but because contracts extend the entire year (and subsequently the vacancy rate is low), applicants will be offered housing only as space becomes available.
Applicants should contact Student Housing and request to be placed on a waiting list. Additional instructions will be included if a contract is offered.
