Frequently Asked Questions
To apply, please complete a Fuller Housing online application at any time during the year.

Full-time graduate students registered for at least 24 units in a master’s level program or 16 units in a doctoral program in an academic year are eligible for Fuller Housing. Students must receive clearance from the Admissions Office and the Financial Aid Office to be eligible for Fuller Housing. International students (those who are not US Citizens or Permanent Residents) must receive a visa and clearance by the International Services Office.
Students in the following programs are NOT eligible for Fuller Housing:

We do not make offers to specific buildings and units as availability is limited. Instead, housing offers are made to the room type, and applicants may choose to accept or decline the offer. In order to ensure offers to as many applicants as possible, applicants can receive up to three offers before being moved to the end of the waitlist.
Due to limited availability and high demand for housing, we cannot guarantee housing for all applicants and cannot guarantee you will receive an offer by your expected move-in date. Due to the nature of the lease agreement, we cannot determine when a tenant will move out until they submit a 30-day notice. Because of this, we cannot guarantee that you will receive a specific unit type or location that will be available at your expected move-in date.
As soon as we receive a 30-day notice, we will send an offer to the next eligible student on the housing waitlist. Offer emails will be sent out 4–8 weeks before your move-in date. If you have not heard from us 6–8 weeks before your earliest date, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes, you can apply for Fuller Housing once you have received a G#, which is issued upon completion of your Fuller Admissions application. However, to be approved for Fuller Housing, you must be admitted as a Fuller student. It is your responsibility to immediately inform the Housing Office when you hear back about your Admissions decision.
Fuller Housing does not provide a roommate matching service. If interested in finding a roommate, a post can be made in the Quad.
If you would like to have a roommate, it is your responsibility to find an eligible Fuller student of the same sex to room with you. If you and another student agree to become roommates, both of you must contact the Housing Office in order to inform us of the match if you wish to be considered for an offer.
You will receive your assigned parking space number, permit, and gate opener upon move-in. ONLY ONE PARKING SPOT PER APARTMENT is guaranteed. Park only in your assigned garage or parking space, with your permit clearly shown in the window at all times. When parking on the street or visitor area, observe the parking signs. Do not park in anyone else’s space, garage, or in front of a garage as your car may be subject to towing at your expense. For additional parking information, please contact Parking Services.
Fuller Seminary’s Access Services engages students with physical, learning, emotional, and temporary disabilities to determine collaboratively whether and what kinds of reasonable accommodations might be necessary to provide access to academic courses and programs at Fuller. Please contact Fuller Seminary’s Access Services for more information.
Fuller Housing does not allow pets. Some residents may have an animal in their unit as an accommodation for a documented disability, either a Service Animal or an Emotional Support Animal (ESA). Our full policy is available here, but below are some general guidelines from that policy. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Housing Office.
Responsibilities of Residents with a Service or Support Animal

- The handler is responsible for ensuring that the approved animal does not interfere with the routine activities of the residence or cause difficulties for students who reside there (e.g., excessive noise)
- Approved animal must be on a leash or in a carrier any time it is outside the residential unit
- Approved animal may not be left overnight under the care of another student/resident
- The handler must toilet the animal outside of the shared community areas, immediately clean up the animal’s waste, and place it in a sturdy plastic bag securely tied before disposing of it in outside trash dumpsters
- The handler must ensure that the approved animal does not disrupt classroom learning, social events, or other activities that are the right of all seminary students
- The animal must not pose a threat to the health or safety of other residents
Responsibilities of the Community
