Things to do Before Applying for On-Campus Housing

How to Apply: 

  1. Apply on-line through your MySacState portal.
  2. You will need a SacLink Username and Sac State ID. Your Sac State ID can be located in the upper right-hand corner of your admission letter. Please wait for 2 to 3 days after creating your account before applying for housing as it can take a few days for your information to be available to the Housing office. If you have any questions, contact Housing and Residential Life.
  3. In your MySacState portal, click on the “Student Services” tab at the stop of the screen. In the “Related Links for Applicants” area, select the My Housing link to access the on-line Licensing application. Once you are on the Licensing page, click on the application and follow the instructions.

Moving Into the Residence Halls Early:  If you have received confirmation that a room in campus housing has been assigned to you, it is usually possible to move in before orientation.  Please contact Housing and Residential Life directly to inform them of your interest in moving in early.
