To be considered for University Housing for an academic year, all students must submit an online application by using the CSULB Housing Web Portal. Housing spaces are filled on a date priority basis. Applicants can check their application status on the CSULB Housing Web Portal. Keep checking your status as applicants will be confirmed throughout the summer months. Please note: a signed housing license does not mean you have been offered a space.
Campus Identification (Campus ID) is unique nine-digit number assigned to each student who submitted an application to CSU, Long Beach. Campus ID can be obtained through Student Enrollment Services Department at 562-985-5471.
The initial housing payment is $400 and is NON-REFUNDABLE. Be sure that you submit a completed license agreement, signed with payment before the deadline date. Unfortunately, license agreements that are received without an initial payment will be considered ‘incomplete’ and will not be processed. The initial payment is credited toward your total cost and is not a deposit.
You can pay online through our web portal's secure payment system or send in a personal or cashiers check. Money Orders are not accepted. Make checks payable to CSULB. Postmarks will not be honored. Be sure to include your name and campus I.D. number on all correspondence and on each check and send it to:
Housing and Residential Life Office
1250 Bellflower Blvd.
Long Beach, CA 90840-8701
You can check your application status online by logging on to the CSULB Housing Web Portal. You will not be contacted by the Housing Office regarding your status. If you have been confirmed for housing, information will be sent to you using your preferred email address. This information will include the dates to log on to the Web Portal for roommate and room selection. If you are on the paid wait list, we are not able to predict how quickly or slowly the paid waiting list may change; it all depends on the number of cancellations we receive throughout the summer and fall. Check the CSULB Housing Web Portal often for updates to your status. You must cancel your housing application using the CSULB Housing Web Portal should you decide you no longer need University housing.
Please refer to the Cancellation Policy for CSULB Housing Applications here.
Important information about Cancelling
YOU MUST cancel your license agreement online with the Housing office. Stop payment on checks or cancelling with university admissions does not cancel your housing agreement. (This includes denied admission; choosing not to attend CSULB, finding off campus housing, or etc.)
Yes, if you are cancelling after July 24, 2013 and you are still on the waitlist. If you have been offered a bed space your initial payment is non-refundable. If you paid online, the processing fees are non-refundable. Be sure to cancel with the Housing Office for any reason (including denied admission), even if you have already cancelled with the Admission or Enrollment Services Office.
Visit our Off-Campus Housing page. There you will find links to the Off-Campus Listing Service, local newspaper classifieds and hotel listings for short stays.
Questions or concerns regarding Housing charges (cancellation fees, pro-rated charges, damage billing, etc.) should first be directed to our office at (562) 985-4187. If a student then desires to contest a charge that is determined to be valid by our office, he or she may do so by submitting a written appeal within 30 days of the posting of the charge. Failure to contest the charges within the 30 day time period shall constitute a waiver of any claim the student may have.
Written appeals will be reviewed monthly by a committee composed of University staff and students. Please note that once an account has been submitted to a non-University collection agency, students are no longer eligible to appeal charges.
