Dear continiung students, 

Student Housing is accepting housing applications for current undergraduate, law, and graduate students who want to live on campus during the 2023-24 academic year. To be eligible for the housing lottery, students must apply by Wednesday, March 1 at 11:59 p.m. PST. Students who apply after the deadline will be automatically added to the housing waitlist. Please read the below information before beginning your application.

What's the Housing Lottery?

All continuing, undergraduate students who correctly submit a housing application between Feb. 1 and March 1 by 11:59 p.m. PST. will receive a housing selection time slot in which they will be able to select their eligible bed space. 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.

Graduate and School of Law students will not participate in the housing lottery and will be assigned bed spaces, if available, in June 2023.

Continuing students are strongly encouraged to view our Continuing Students web page for more information about the housing selection process, as well as the Contracts and Documents web page to view the housing contracts associated with the application they are filling out.

Rising sophomores 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 room during the room selection process. If a second-year student misses their room selection timeslot, they will not be guaranteed a room and will be added to the waitlist.

How do I apply?

Before applying, please read the following information to ensure you apply using the correct housing application. Here are the options:

  • Academic Year 2023-24: Undergraduate students who will be under 21 years of age during the 2023-24 academic year should only fill out this application.
  • Academic Year 2023-24, Loyola Village (LV), Fulton House (FH): Undergraduate students who will be 21 years of age or older during the 2023-24 academic year should only fill out this application. General graduate students can also fill this application out for possible placement in the Fulton House, although space is limited.
  • Academic Year 2023-24, St Anne's: This application may only be filled out by law school students. No other students should out fill this application.

Have any questions about the housing application process? Please call Student Housing at (415) 422-6824 or email us at We look forward to receiving your housing application by March 1!

Resources for Rising Juniors and Seniors

On-campus housing for juniors and seniors will be extremely limited. Unfortunately, some students who apply for housing by the March 1 deadline will not be guaranteed a housing space for the 2023-24 academic year. We want to assist you further as you plan on applying for housing next year and consider moving off campus. For more information and resources, visit the Off-Campus Living web page and follow us on Instagram. We look forward to assisting you with your off-campus housing search!

Dear students and families,

As we enter the midway point of the Fall Semester, it is never too early to start thinking about Winter Break. As your students have been working hard, they will no doubt be looking forward to a well deserved break. To help you help them prepare, Student Housing is providing a few helpful pointers so you can guide them should they have questions:

  • As much as it is a transition to come to school, it is also a transition to take a break after the first semester. Most students have developed new habits and norms and leaving those can be challenging for some.
  • Halls close at 12 p.m. (noon) on Saturday, December 17 for the Winter Break period. Students may move back into their rooms for the Spring Semester at 12 p.m. (noon) on Thursday, January 19th.
    • Students can request to stay during the winter break period through the winter break/intersession application process. Additionally, students can return as early as January 2 through our winter break/ intersession application process. 
    • Winter break and intersession are a separate cost of $250 per period. At that time, all halls will be open but are only open to those approved through the intersession application process. Have your student keep an eye out on their email for information on this process.
    • Information can be found here for students who need housing from December 17 - January 2 and during January 2 - January 19.
  • Students will need to check out with their RA before they leave the halls for Winter Break. Make sure that all electrical devices are unplugged and that refrigerators are cleaned out. Nothing is more welcoming in January than to come into a room and open a refrigerator that has month-old leftovers inside. 
  • Students can leave any or all of their belongings in their room during the break period. Please advise your students to take any essential items when they check out for the break as they will not have access back into the building until we open in January. Essential items include, but are not limited to: medicine, passport or identification, gaming consoles they might want to take home, their stuffed animal they’ve had since they were a baby.

We have been so fortunate to be part of most of your students’ first experiences here at USF. We hope this upcoming break period is one of rest and reflection on their first semester and a chance to refresh for the Spring term.

With respect,
