Freshmen Application Process - STARTS MAY 6 at 3PM!

The housing application process for incoming freshmen is different from the process for returning and transfer students.

Please go to the Accepted Student site to navigate the steps to finalizing your acceptance and enrollment.

Once you have, go to "Prepare for Your First Quarter" and to check out the online welcome course.

Roommate Searching starts June 6. A walkthrough for the roommate searching process can be found here:

Students are required to live on campus and purchase the Residential Meal Plan (or higher) if they fall into any of the following categories:

  • Freshmen or sophomore and under the age of 21.
  • First or second year SU student and under the age of 21.
  • Within two years of high school graduation date as of first day of fall quarter classes, and under the age of 21.

If students fall into any of the above categories (as of the first day of class for the academic year), they are required to live on campus for the full academic year. If student status (class year, age etc.) changes during the academic year, they will not be released from this housing requirement until the following academic year. The summer quarter is not included in the residential requirement.

Incoming Fall Quarter freshmen housing applications for students will become available in early May. For all other quarters (Winter, Spring, and Summer) please fill out the Housing Application on the Housing Portal.
