Graduate and Law Student Housing

How to Sign Up for Graduate and Law Housing

The Housing Sign-Up process for new, incoming graduate and law students is different than the process used for undergraduates and returning graduate/law students because housing is very limited. New graduate/law students who are interested in housing are required to follow this process:

  1. For new students initially enrolling for summer or fall, the online application will not be available until the first week in May. You are able to list your housing preferences on the application. For those returning please click here.
  2. You are also required to make a $250 non-refundable prepayment. Please send a check made out to the University of San Diego with your ID number and indicate it is for your Housing prepayment in the memo to: University of San Diego, Attn: Cashier, HC211, 5998 Alcala Park, San Diego CA, 92110. Priority will be based on the date the prepayment is received, so we encourage you to submit your prepayment as soon as possible.
  3. After your application and prepayment are received, you will be assigned housing should space permit. You will be notified via email of your assignment and your roommate's name and contact information if you are sharing an apartment.

Our graduate/law housing is very limited. Once we receive applications and prepayments for all available spaces, we will close the housing application and begin an interest list. A message will be posted on the application at that time with further instructions on how to be placed on the interest list. Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of our campus residential community.
