Transfers Students & On-Campus Housing

As a transfer student we encourage you to consider and apply for on-campus housing as soon as you are admitted to Santa Clara University. 24 hours after you've submitted your enrollment deposit at SCU, you can apply for campus housing through your eCampus account by selecting the Housing Portal. The application will open on January 12th 2022, and close on June 30th, 2022.  As you complete the application, you will indicate your preferred residence hall placements. At Santa Clara University, there is not a specific transfer student residence hall. Transfer students are assigned to any space that aligns with your application preferences. Additionally, your housing assignment will be based on residence hall space availability as well as your eligibility to reside within particular buildings. 

Make sure to visit our Residential Living Options section for specifics and more information about our residence halls.

Need help completing the Application? See the 2022-2023 Transfer Student Application How To  Guide. 

Transfer students who will be entering their third or fourth year of college are considered juniors or seniors, respectively, and would be placed in University Villas or Neighborhood Units.

If you have any questions about on-campus housing for transfer students, please do contact the Housing Office at or (408) 554-4900. We would love to see you on campus!
