Returning Residents: Opportunity for Priority Self-Selection Time Slots

Are you a current resident hoping to live on-campus Fall 2018? Would you like to know how you can make the self-selection process easier?

Nominate yourself to receive a priority self-selection time slot! A priority self-selection time slot will give you a time slot during the first few days of the self-selection process. This means you and your roommates will have a larger selection of apartments to choose from!

This year, we want to give you an opportunity to tell us your story! We want to hear how living on-campus has contributed to your academic experience and how you positively impact our residential community.

After submission, the applications will undergo a blind evaluation where personal details such as your name and SFSU ID number will not be shown to the evaluating committee. Feel free to share as much as you are comfortable with. To apply, fill out the Priority Housing Self-Nomination Application and follow the timeline below.

Important Self-Nomination Dates:

  • March 30, 2018 at 11:59pm: Self-Nomination Application closes
  • April 2 - April 6: Self-Nomination Review process
  • April 13: Status notification
  • End of April: Self-Selection times slots are sent out
