In order to be assigned housing within the CSU Residence Halls, all students must meet three basic requirements:

  • Pay the $300 enrollment deposit (new students) OR a $200 room deposit (returning students).
  • Complete and submit the Immunization Form. A-F are required immunizations.
  • Fill out the Roommate Questionnaire

The residence halls are divided up into housing specifically for upperclassmen, freshmen and transfer students. The residence halls are gender specific. CSU does not have co-ed housing. Rooms are assigned on a first-come basis. New student housing is assigned based on the completion of requirements, requests and availability. We do our best to accommodate all requests. Every effort is made to match roommates based on the information provided in the roommate questionnaire.

Room assignments for new students coming for the fall semester are made beginning in the spring and on an ongoing basis thereafter. New students coming for the spring semester begin in December. Russell East and Women’s North are reserved for freshman females. Quad 1 and the third floor of Russell West house freshman males. Upperclassmen female transfers are housed in Women’s South, while upperclassmen male transfers are housed in Quad 2.
