Thank you for your interest in living on campus at SFUAD!

It’s the best way to meet new friends and get involved in university life. Housing assignments are based on the date of your application, including the receipt of your Housing Deposit. Assignments are contracted for an academic year; therefore, those students attending school for the fall semester will have the same room assignment for the spring semester. Students will be able to leave their belongings in their assignment during the Winter Break.

Once you have accepted admission to SFUAD, you will need to pay your $200 Housing Deposit. Once your deposit is paid, you will be able to log into the housing application online through the Housing Portal. The Fall 2017 housing application will open on March 27, 2017 for all new and transfer students. no fee to apply!

Housing and Residence Life is excited to announce our timeline for Housing Selection for the 2017-2018 academic year. In the 2017-2018 academic year, we will be utilizing an updated programming model. What this means for our students is programming and events that are tailored to our students wants and needs. Students can expect to see fun and interesting activities occurring throughout the academic year in their residence halls and apartments. In the past year, we have worked hard to provide a living and learning environment that emphasizes the importance of academic success and community involvement. Additionally, we are assessing current policies and practices to determine how policies can be clearer, easier to understand, and to better serve our students.

Please Note: All students who are currently in housing MUST complete either a Housing Application or a Commuter Request Form. In accordance with university policy and the current two-year residential requirement, students failing to complete either form will have charges applied to their account; however, will not receive a housing assignment until they complete the Housing Application.

Other notes about Housing for the 2017-2018 academic year:

Priority will be given to students who have submitted their application by 11:59pm on March, 24. This means we will make every possible attempt to place students in their requested building and with the requested roommate(s). For the students who complete their housing application after that date and time have a significantly smaller chance of receiving their requested building and roommate(s). Placement will be based on the date and time you submit your housing application. The sooner you apply, the better your chances of getting what you want.

When completing your Housing Application, will also require to choose a meal plan (as stated in the student handbook and housing contract). Students will be notified of their building and roommate assignment on April 17. Students will receive an email with updates (including Room Assignments) in July, 2017. Although not likely, it is possible that space changes may take place after you receive your housing assignment. If/when a change is made that impacts you we will send an email notifying you of those changes.
