CSUMB Student Housing Live-On Requirement
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the freshman/sophomore live-on requirement was temporarily waived for the 2021-2022 academic year. The requirement will be reinstated for both freshman and sophomore students, beginning with the 2022-2023 academic year. See below for information on the academic year live-on requirement.
CSUMB Student Housing offers students a complete living-learning experience, with dedicated, student-led programming, and opportunities to connect with the greater CSUMB community. Student Housing is centrally located and provides easy access to classrooms, several dining options, the campus library, and more. Because of this access, we believe that the on-campus experience is vital to your college success.
In accordance with the CSUMB Student Housing policy, all full-time first year students and sophomores that do not live in the tri-county area are required to live in on campus housing.
