The agreements are under housing agreements.

Students must choose one of the two housing options.   

1)  2018-2019 New Student Online Agreement

The first option is to accept a housing agreement for students planning to live in university housing during the academic year.  Students who complete this agreement will be required to make a $200 payment by e-check or credit card ( a service fee is applied) online.

Read the agreement.   Complete the online signature

Click the "Continue" button at the bottom of the screen.   

You will get a payment message. 

Select payment method - credit card (includes 2.5% convenience fee) or e Check (no convenience fee) Note:  MasterCard, Discover, Visa, and American Express are accepted.   

Continue to payment page and enter payment information. You must click the continue button on this page to properly submit your housing.   

Receive a confirmation email notice guiding you to housing instructions and RoomSync link.  RoomSync is a Facebook Application we purchased to help students find potential roommates. RoomSync passcodes will be emailed to incoming students periodically at the SU email account as well.

2)  2018-2019 New Student Commuter/Exemption 

The second option is to sign a Non-Resident Housing Exemption.  Entering first year and transfer students having fewer than 30 (between 1 -29) undergraduate college level transferable credits are required to live in university housing.  Students who plan to commute from the home of their parents or legal guardians within 35 miles of campus, those age 21 years or older, and/or legally married may be exempt from the housing requirement.  If a student accepts this agreement they are stating one of the exceptions apply to them.  At the bottom of the page a student can agree or not agree and continue as directed.    

Students who have confirmed housing (signed a housing agreement and paid a housing deposit) with Shippensburg University can go online and complete housing.   Return to: Incoming Student Housing Instructions

 Note:  These instructions will be similar for incoming students for Spring 2019 except the housing office will make assignments after mid-December.   Students do not select their own room in spring, but can request roommates.
