To assist our students with their financial planning, Student Housing & Residential Life offers a rate lock structure for Main Campus and East Campus. Rates typically increase by about 5 percent per year. All housing and meal plan fees are due in accordance to CSUMB Tuition/Fees Deadlines.
The housing cost per semester is broken down into three payments. The first payment is 50% of the total cost and the remaining two payments are 25% of the total cost of housing. Each Payment is due on the 15th of the corresponding month. See the below grid for more details.Housing Installment Payment Plan Info
