CONTINUING STUDENT HOUSING APPLICATION INFORMATION FOR THE 2022-2023 ACADEMIC YEAR

The 2022-2023 Academic Year Housing application will be available through USFRooms beginning February 1st for continuing students. The priority deadline to submit an application is March 1, 2022 11:59 PM PST. 

All continuing students who correctly submit a housing application between Feb. 1 and March 1 at 11:59 p.m. PST. will receive a housing selection time slot. Based on the housing time slot they are given, students will be able to select a bedspace that they are eligible for until spaces fill up. Therefore, completing a housing application by the deadline does not guarantee that students will receive on-campus housing, but it does guarantee that they will receive a housing time slot during the room selection process. 

It is important to note that rising second year students will be guaranteed housing as part of the two-year housing guarantee. Second year students are only guaranteed housing if they apply by the deadline and select a bedspace during room selection. If a second year student misses their room selection timeslot they will not be guaranteed a bedspace and will be added to the waitlist.

 It's strongly encouraged that all continuing students view the Forms and Documents webpage to view the housing contracts associated with the application they are filling out. 

Room selection timeslots will be sent on April 4, 2022 and room selection will take place between April 18-April 29, 2022. Any student that does not select a bed or is not able to select a bed in addition to those that sign-up past the priority deadline will be added to the waitlist. The waitlist will be published May 13, 2022.

CONTINUING STUDENT HOUSING APPLICATION INFORMATION FOR THE SPRING 2022 SEMESTER

The Spring 2022 Housing application is still available through USFRooms. Any student that applies will be automatically added to the waitlist and will be assigned on a rolling basis.

Room Selection Process FAQ

Can I secure a spot for myself and my roommate during the selection process if I have an earlier time slot than my roommate?

Yes. Students can secure a spot for themselves and their requested roommates if they have an earlier time and there is still space available. Housing selection is live, however, so taking too much time to secure a space during your time slot could jeopardize your spot as well as your roommate's. Make sure to have everything planned and ready to go before you log on to select a bed space.

I am graduating in December and want to live on campus for the fall semester, but I only see a "spring only" option aside from the full academic year option. Is there a "fall only" option? 

If you are graduating in December and want to select a bed space for the fall semester only, you will have to select the entire academic year option. During mid-fall semester, you will need to cancel your housing application. More information will be provided to students regarding how to cancel. The cancellation fee will not be applied to those graduating in December.

Will I be charged the cancellation fee if I cancel my room assignment later on? 

If, after selecting a bed space, you cancel your application after May 6, 2022 at 12:00 p.m., you will be charged the cancellation fee. Please note that room selection is scheduled to end on April 29, 2022, so this gives students some time to decide if they want to keep their room selections or not (students will be given a grace period to cancel their housing selection after the room selection process ends). Please also note that students do not have to pay the fee if they take a leave of absence or withdraw from the university. 

Do I have to pay a deposit fee? 

No. Continuing students who are returning to on-campus housing do not need to pay a deposit fee for housing. 

Can I change my room after I select one?

During the summer we will open the room change module on USFRooms in which you will be able to request a room change. If we are able to process your request we will do so and email you a confirmation. Once the summer room change period ends on August 1, you will then have to wait until the Fall 2022 Census Date to request a room change.

Housing Stats for Continuing Students

On-campus housing for students is very limited at the University of San Francisco, which is especially true for students after their sophomore year. It is important for students to take housing limitations into account when planning their college experience. Student Housing is committed to helping students transition to life off-campus by offering a number of resources to help students and families with the housing search. Included below are some facts about housing for continuing students, which aim to assist students with making informed decisions about the college experience and securing housing that works best for each individual.

Percentages of Returning Students Housed

In terms of concrete numbers, the most important thing to recognize is that the majority of our students live off-campus. Broken down by academic class, the percentages of students who live on-campus look like this:

Sophomores

Historically, only ⅓ of sophomores who applied were housed. Beginning in fall 2021 the two year housing guarantee was implemented for incoming freshmen. The rising second-year students are guaranteed on-campus housing for their second year on campus if they apply by the deadline.

Juniors and Seniors

  • 1/4 of eligible students apply to live on campus their junior or senior year.
  • 1/3 of students who apply are housed. 

It is important for students to recognize that they are likely to begin living off-campus as early as their third year.

Off Campus Living Resources

We understand that the prospect of finding an apartment in San Francisco can be challenging, particularly for students who have never rented an apartment before. To support students with the transition to living off campus, we have established some helpful resources found on the Off Campus Living website to help students navigate the search process and assist with finding safe and affordable housing.
