Student Housing and Residential Life

Winter Break

Registering for Winter Housing

All residents planning to stay on campus during Winter Break need to register through their MyHousing portal to retain building access during this period. All students wishing to remain will need to complete their registration by December 1, 2021. Housing facilities will remain open during CSUMB's Winter Break. 

If you do not register for winter housing and your plans change over the break, please contact the housing office during business hours before arriving back on campus. We want to ensure you have proper building access, so registration is required.

In order to have access to the registration form you need to: 

  • Have an Academic Year assignment and are continuing in to the Spring 2022 semester 
    • If you are graduating or leaving the university you are not eligible to stay on campus during Winter Break
  • Have no outstanding balances for the Fall 2021 semester

Register in your MyHousing Portal starting early November!
