For Exchange Students (J-1) Only: Please apply for housing ONLY after consulting with us. Your Cal Poly Pomona Coordinator will provide you detailed information. Below is the list of choices for housing.


Your choice of a place to live is one of the most important decisions you will make during your collegiate career. We encourage you to consider living in an on-campus facility for your first year at the university. There are several advantages to choosing either the Residence Halls (dorms) or the University Village as your living quarters. First, you will be living on the university campus, which will eliminate the problem of commuting to school. Secondly, you will be able to meet and interact with students from the United States, as well as from many other countries. This experience is valuable as you will make lasting friendships and gain important insights into campus life.

Residence Halls (University Housing)

The Residence Halls are co-ed and non-smoking. All rooms are double occupancy, and all rooms have Ethernet connections. Each hall has a laundry room, study areas, recreation room/TV lounge, mailboxes and community kitchenettes. Residence Hall students are required to choose a meal plan, which includes a 19-, 14- or a 10-meal plan per week. The Residence Halls also offer Fitness Express (a health club) and Java the Hut (a coffee house and cyber café).

It is recommended that you send in your application as early as possible since the Residence Halls fill rapidly. Spaces are limited and are offered on a first come first serve basis as of the date and time the License Agreement is submitted online.

University Village (Foundation)

The University Village is an apartment complex for students only. It is within walking and bicycling distance of the campus. To qualify for the Village, students must have completed 36-quarter units of instruction, or they must be at least 21 years of age. The apartments are designed to house 4 students per unit, and they contain either furnished double or single bedrooms. Each unit has a common kitchen and a living room. There are no meal plans available at the Village, so students do their own cooking in their apartments. The Village offers residents laundry facilities, a computer room, computer access, a swimming pool, a basketball court, and a sand volleyball court.
