How do the payments work?
Beginning in Fall 2020, the cost of Housing and the Meal Plan will be posted directly to the student's MyCSUSM account. In order to ensure that all money paid is accurately applied, we recommend against pre-paying (paying for the year or the semester) for the cost of Housing. In order to make paying for Housing easier, we have split the cost over 8 installments throughout the academic year. These payments will be due on the same schedule as Tuition & Fees. The due dates for the 20-21 Academic Year are as follows:
Aug 26th, September 25th , October 25th, November 24th , January 20th, February 19th, March 21st, April 20th
Please note that we do not charge installments in December or May.

How can I get along with my roommate?
We advise students to talk with each other directly and respectfully. Mistakes made when communicating can be around leaving notes, texting, or simply staying silent. If a student has concerns they should bring those to the roommate. If issues continue students should contact their RA or RD as soon as possible.
Here are some tips on how to get along with your roommate from psychcentral.com:

What is a guarantor?
A guarantor is someone who is 25 years of age or older and resides in the US. At least one guarantor (at the most two) is required on the student's Housing application/license agreement. They are responsible for the license agreement cost with the resident.
If a student cannot provide a guarantor, Housing will accept a deposit in lieu of guarantor in the amount of $1,200. It is refundable after moving out and damages are assessed. Payment for the deposit can be made with either check or money order to the respective property. If paying with an international bank account, payments can be made with FlyWire.

What's the difference between a standard Double and a Deluxe Double?
While some Deluxe Doubles are larger in size than standard Doubles, this isn't always the case. So, what's the difference?
At the QUAD, a Deluxe Double means a smaller number of roommates (from 3-7 students total in the apartment) as opposed to a standard double (8 students in the apartment.) At the UVA, a Deluxe Double has between 4 and 5 students in the apartment as opposed to 6 students in a standard double apartment.
