Residential Life

Drop Shadow

In partnership with other university departments, we continually enhance our facilities, services and programs in order to provide a safe, inclusive living community and to create learning opportunities that support the holistic growth of each resident.

Ask any current Torero resident or the scores of alumni who once called Alcalaá Park home—they will tell you their number #1 reason for living on-campus is/was the sense of community that comes from living among your peers. Nothing can compare to the fun and excitement of living in an environment where the learning never stops and lasting memories are waiting to be made. 

 

2015 - 2016 Academic Year Housing Application 

Sign up for academic year campus housing - complete the campus housing agreement for 2015 - 2016

Residential Life works on making the Housing Sign Up Process as easy as possible. The dates are simple, February 2 through March 2. New this year there are unique opportunities including the neighborhood option where students can pick not only their roommates but also the students in neighboring apartments.

Another update for this year, no cash, no check…no problem! There is not a nonrefundable prepayment due to complete the housing process. However, please note, when you complete your housing application you are committing to fulfilling the full academic year agreement. If you cancel your housing at any time for any reason you will be billed the $250 cancellation fee in addition to any other applicable fees.

Check out our timeline for the Housing Sign Up Process.

Also please review the updates to the process including information on the $250, Neighborhood, and Squatters Rights.

If you have any questions at any time please contact us at housing@sandiego.edu or by phone at 619.260.4777.
