Winter and Spring Housing

Updated Feb. 20, 2019

In addition to housing contracts that run for the academic year (from September to June), students can also apply to the interest list for housing during the winter and spring or housing for spring only. Available to all students including freshmen, continuing and transfer students.

  • Winter and Spring Housing
    Includes housing during both the winter and spring quarter, starting Jan. 5, 2019.
    Cal Poly does not offer housing for just the winter quarter because housing contracts, once in effect, are for the duration of the academic year.
    Eligible for the installment payment plan.

  • Spring Housing
    Includes housing during the spring quarter, starting March 31, 2019.
    Because the duration of the contract is shorter, the installment payment plan is not available.

Apply for the Interest List

Students interested in living on campus for the winter and spring quarter should fill out the Winter and Spring Campus Housing Interest List form. Students who are interested in living on campus only for 2019 spring quarter should fill out the Spring Campus Housing Interest List form.
