Apply for Student Housing

Things to know before you apply

The Park Apartments and Suites are designed for undergraduate, graduate students and offer multiple housing options ideally suited for the various members of our student population.

The Village Apartments are designed for graduate and undergraduate students with spouses/domestic partners and/or dependent children.

CSUN Student Housing started a waitlist for the 2024-2025 academic year for both The Park Apartments and Suites and The Village Apartments. Students on the waitlist can check their waitlist number in the Student Housing portal. If you can't find your waitlist number, please contact our office by phone at 818-677-2160 or email at housing@csun.edu.

CSUN has a total enrollment of 39,130, but only 2,781 bed spaces currently available at The Park Apartments and Suites for the 2024/25 academic year. Once our application opened, all spaces filled up quickly and our waitlist reached more than 2000 people. We will continue to send offers to students as space becomes available through April 2025, however, students on the waitlist who need housing for fall 2024 should plan for other options in case a bed space does not become available.
