Current and Future Applicants

Demand for housing at CSU San Macros is very high. At this time, on-campus housing for fall 2023 has been completely filled and we have a sizeable waitlist. We are unable to guarantee that students on the waitlist, or students who submit new applications for housing will receive on-campus housing. Vacancies that become available will be offered to students on the waitlist based on first-year status, commuting distance, and other critical factors.

Students in need of housing for the fall semester are encouraged to consider commuting or exploring off-campus housing options:
