Winter and Spring Housing

Updated Nov. 5, 2019

In addition to housing contracts that run for the academic year (from September to June), students can also apply for housing during the winter and spring or housing for spring only. This option is available to all students — including first-year, continuing and transfer students.

  • Winter and Spring 2020 Housing
    Includes housing during both the winter and spring quarter, starting Jan. 4, 2020.

    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.
     
  • Spring 2020 Housing
    Includes housing during the spring quarter, starting March 29, 2020.
