Campus Housing and Residence Halls
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 Alcalá 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.
Fall 2016 Closing Memos
The Residential Life - Central Office will be closed for the holiday break on December 23rd and will reopen on Tuesday, January 3rd at 8:30am.
Residents living in continuous residential halls including San Antonio de Padua, University Terrace Apartments, Manchester Village and the Presidio Terrace Apartments are welcome to stay on campus in their fall rooms at no additional cost. If the resident is leaving for an extended period of time during winter break or intersession then please review the continuous residential hall closing memo for instructions.
Residents living in non continuous residential halls including all first year areas, the Alcala Vistas and San Buenaventura are expected to checkout of their fall rooms 24 hours after their last final or December 21 by 12noon (whichever comes first). All items do not need to be removed but please review the non continuous residential hall closing memo for instructions.
Additional information is provided about intersession housing and how to sign-up on both memos.
All students can access the housing portal for applications, electronic room condition forms, room selection and more.

Second Year Residency Requirement
The University has completed a significant study focused on recreating the success of the first year experience and duplicating this for second year students. Learn more about on campus housing for second year students. Living on campus offers the perfect balance.
Living on campus is a great opportunity but please consider pursuing Renter's Insurance or asking your parents about their home owner's insurance. Residential Life does not exclusively promote a particular provider but there is important information about your housing agreement and liability considerations.
Spring 2017 Housing
If you already know a specific roommate and/or room that you would like to move into, please email email@example.com wit
Keep in mind that if you need housing during intersession that you will need to complete a separate application. The intersession application is currently available. The daily rate for intersession is $35 for a shared room or $43 for a single room not to exceed $400. We will do our best to accommodate new residents moving into their spring room.
