Phase 1 (Opens October 1, 2019)

Apply for on-campus living and choose your roommate
  • Apply for housing
  • Edit and update your Contact Information
  • Create your housing profile
  • Pay $200 non-refundable housing fee
  • Request or find a roommate of your choosing

Step 2 (Opens February 4, 2020 @ 5pm)

Room Selection & Housing Confirmation
  • You will return to the housing portal begin the room selection process.
  • If you have confirmed a roommate and both of you have accepted your roommate requests and been accepted to MC, then only one of you will need to sign you up for an available double room. 
  • Roommates will need to choose a completely empty double room if they want to be together. The room selection should read 2/2 to be able to pull in a roommate. 

Roommate requests are not guaranteed. It is a student’s responsibility to ensure that when selecting a room, if they have a confirmed roommate request, that the roommate is also placed in the room.  Requesting a roommate after you have chosen a room will not pull the person into the room.

Any student (current or new) who has applied for housing but misses the opportunity for room selection (which closes July 31, 2020) will have their room assigned by the Office of Residence Life according to room availability and the room preferences designated on the housing application.

Please note, if you need ADA Accommodations, you must have contacted and completed all necessary documentation with Counseling and Disability Services by May 8th.  Failure to do so will result with the inability for Residence Life to make any necessary accommodations.
