Spring 2016 Calendar Adjustment

With approval from the Chancellor’s Office, the SF State Academic Senate has resolved to adjust the Spring 2016 academic calendar in order to accommodate a May 27 commencement at AT&T Park. This has caused changes in the Housing calendar. Please see the Terms & Conditions as well as the Housing Calendar for new Spring 2016 dates, including new move-in and move-out dates.


Spring 2016 Application

The Spring 2016 application will be available September 1, 2015. A $55 application fee is required and can be paid online.

Applicants will only be able to complete steps through “License Agreement Introduction.” The License Agreement and Initial Payment will be available November 1, 2015.

Please see our application page for more information.


Spring Forward

Students on the Fall 2015 wait list can change their application to Spring 2016 by emailing the Housing Office.

*Please note that changing your application to Spring 2016 will cancel your Fall 2015 application and License Agreement, and remove you from the wait list.
