I applied for off-campus for either financial hardship, medical, or other extenuating circumstances and I have not received any updates regarding my off-campus petition. What are my next steps?
Any off-campus petition submitted via StarRez by the petition deadline are currently under review. If you applied for financial hardship, medical, or other extenuating circumstances, and have not received an official notification regarding your petition status before your room selection time slot opens, you will need to participate in room selection.
Once petition decision letters are sent, any student not approved for off-campus will need to participate in room selection. If you are not approved for off-campus status and do not participate in the StarRez (SR) room selection process, the Office of Residence Life will assign you a room assignment and a roommate.
I participated in room selection and then later received an official notice for off-campus approval. What are my next steps?
Please follow instructions in your official off-campus approval notification email. If you would like to accept your off-campus approval offer, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org . Any room and meal plan charges will be reversed.
What residential halls are available for selection for upperclassmen students?
For this year's selection process, Lower Res Hall & Maritime North Halls will be available for selection via the StarRez Portal. At the moment, McAllister and Upper Res Halls will be reserved for the incoming 1st year students. If there are any changes to McAllister Hall being available for upperclassmen, we will update the occupancy options.
I selected the wrong hall/bed space or need a roommate change. What do I do?
In the StarRez housing application, there is a "Wait List Options" page through your StarRez application. If you would like to change your tentative room or roommate selection, please submit your request via the "Wait List Options" page. Any hall/room and roommate requests submitted via the waitlist page will be reviewed.
Please understand that residents are selecting a "tentative" bed space when participating in room selection. Requests are dependent on availability and it is not a guarantee that our office will be able to grant your request. Our office will review all requests submitted and will communicate any updates throughout the remainder of semester and throughout summer months. We will do our best to accommodate change requests.
When I logged into my StarRez application to complete the room selection process, it appeared that there were no bed spaces available for me to select. As a result, I was not able to select a hall/bed space. What do I do next?
If there were not any tentative bed spaces available for selection, you will need to complete the "Wait List Options" page in your StarRez application. For any resident who was not able to select a bed, their names will be added to a temporary waitlist for room selection. Via the "Wait List Option" page, you will be able to input your requests for hall & roommate preferences.
Any hall/room and roommate requests submitted via the waitlist page will be reviewed. Please understand that residents are selecting a "tentative" bed space when participating in room selection. Requests are dependent on availability and it is not a guarantee that our office will be able to grant your request, but we will try our best to accommodate.
I would like to request a single room buyout. How can I do that?
In the StarRez housing application, there's a "Single Room Buyout Requests" waitlist page for residents to opt into. If you would like to be on the waitlist for a single room buyout, please submit your request via the wait list page through your StarRez application.
Please understand that single room buyout requests are dependent on availability and it's not a guarantee that our office will be able to grant your request or single room buyouts will be available. Our office will review all requests submitted and will communicate any updates throughout the remainder of semester and throughout summer months.
I selected a meal plan via my StarRez application, but I would like to change my meal plan. How can I do that?
If you log back into your StarRez application and you're not able to change your meal plan, please send an email to email@example.com with the new meal plan you would like for the academic year.
I completed my Housing License Agreement (HLA) & participated in room selection. Is there anything else I need to do?
All tentative room assignments will be reviewed throughout the remainder of the semester and throughout summer. Once assignments are confirmed, all room assignment emails will be sent to students by mid-July via your @csum.edu account. The email includes details regarding your specific room assignment, your roommate information, and your check-in time for Fall 2020 Move-in Day.
