Would you like to live on campus next academic year? Then fill out the 2019-2020 Housing Application and pay your application fee. We'll start processing applications and sending out housing contracts around March 1.

If you would like to live on campus this summer, fill out the Summer 2019 housing application. If you are a current CSU on-campus resident, you do not need to pay the application fee. NOTE: all CSU students who live on campus for the summer must purchase a summer meal plan.

The First-Year Residential Experience 

The First-Year Residential Experience at Cleveland State University is a new, year-long, residentially-based program designed to help students learn valuable information about college life and the University, and to establish a foundation for success in and outside the classroom. 

Students in the Program live in select residence halls and buildings with their first-year classmates, and have the opportunity to participate in programming designed to meet the unique needs of first-year students.  The objectives of this first-year program include facilitating the transition to campus life, providing opportunities to make connections with peers, promoting healthy living by helping develop physical and emotional wellness skills, and fostering a sense of community and belonging.  

For the 2019-2020 academic year, Cleveland State will offer the first-year program to all students in Fenn Tower and Buildings 1 and 2 of Euclid Commons.   


Health Insurance Requirement

The University is committed to student success.  Your health and wellbeing impacts your ability to complete your coursework and graduate on time.  In support of your success, the Department of Residence Life encourages you to take full responsibility for your health and understands access to health insurance is necessary to be able to do so.  Therefore, each student living in a residence hall is required to provide proof of health insurance coverage prior to moving in.
