Although we do not assign students to off-campus housing, nor provide roommate-matching services; SDSU has prepared the Off-Campus Housing Resources (HERE) to assist students with related needs. It is the student’s responsibility to find the best-fit housing option for them. If you have any questions, please contact us at
