Housing Application and Agreement process

Current Cal State LA Students: As an enrolled student, you already have access to the Housing Portal and can access housing applications as soon as they are available.

We invite all current Cal State LA students to participate in the Spring 2022 application and license agreement process. Friday, November 12, 2021 is the priority deadline to submit your completed online housing application and agreement and $340 initial payment fee.

All students will be required to satisfy a $340 initial payment along with their completed application/license agreement to participate in the Spring 2022 housing application process

New Undergraduate First-Year/Transfer Admits: In order to access the Housing Portal, you must meet the following criteria.

  • Only students who have paid their $100 ECD to confirm enrollment with Cal State LA will obtain access to the online housing application and license agreement. Once you pay the Enrollment Confirmation Deposit (ECD), it will take 4-5 days for you to gain access to apply online through the Housing Portal. You will not recieve an email alert about this, so we encourage you to try logging onto the portal daily to check access.
