Don’t Forget!

You can apply for housing immediately after you apply for admission to the university. You don’t have to wait until you are officially admitted.

Why live on campus?

Living on campus offers a range of benefits that significantly enhance your overall academic experience and personal development. It means easy access to classes and academic resources, community support from other students just like you, and more opportunities to join an organization or attend an event.
Living on campus also means more direct access to campus services and meal plans that help keep your body and mind nourished as you navigate your college years.

Tip from us: apply early

After you apply to SFA, you'll receive your mySFA username and password. This allows you to apply for housing right away; you don't have to wait until you are officially admitted to the university. And a perk of applying for housing early: admitted students select a residence hall assignment based on the date the residence hall application and deposit are submitted, so the earlier the better! 

Submit your housing application

To apply for housing, use your mySFA credentials to complete the online process:

  1. Log in to your mySFA account.
  2. Select the "Campus Life" tab.
  3. Select "Residence Life Services" and log in using your mySFA credentials.
  4. Choose the correct application for your upcoming term.
  5. Complete your application
    • If you would like to join an RLC, select "yes" when prompted and indicate your preferences.
  6.  Pay your $100 deposit.

You'll receive a confirmation of successful submission through your SFA email account. 

If you indicated an interest in an RLC:

Any additional instructions or requirements and your decision letter will be sent through your SFA email. If approved, you'll be notified of the RLC's room selection date and time.

Consider joining a Residential Learning Community — there's no extra cost!

These close-knit communities allow Lumberjacks with similar interests to live and learn together. Each RLC offers specific academic and social events that connect you with peers and faculty members, letting you explore your major or interest on a deeper level.

RLCs are located in a specific wing within a designated residence hall; therefore, space in RLCs is limited. Explore these options early and indicate your interest on your housing application.
