Instructions for completing the Housing Agreement and Deposit for the Full Academic year 2019-2020
 

Fall 2019 One Semester Housing Agreement
Students may request a special Fall 2019 One Semester Agreement if they plan to graduate in December, study abroad, or student teach during the Spring 2019 semester.  This is for students who do not plan to reside in university housing during the spring semester. 

Students who plan to study abroad in the fall semester can request a Spring 2020 housing agreement in October of 2019 by contacting the Housing Office.  If approved students must come to Housing and Residence Life Office in McLean Hall Room 113 to sign the special agreement.

Roommate and Room Selection
Shortly (24-48 hours) after confirming your housing you will be added to the room selection process.

Step 2

Roommate Selection - After confirming housing you will receive information in order to use our roommate matching software, My College Roomie. 

Step 3

Select a room.  Students can select rooms in one of two ways. 

1)  Use the room selection button in the portal to filter and find available non-Living Learning Community rooms.  The first of the matching roommates to select the room will pull the other roommate into the room.  Students will only see rooms that will accommodate all matching roommates.

2)  Select a room in a Living Learning Community (LLC) by completing the LLC application (The 2019-2020 application will be available soon). 

Returning/Graduate Students wishing to live with Incoming Students - For a Non-LLC suite the returning student should contact the housing office by email at: housing@ship.edu when they select a room to hold the vacancy for the new student.  After the new student confirms by signing the housing agreement and paying the $200 he/she should email the housing@ship.edu requesting the returning student and the room being held.  However, if the students would like to live in an LLC the returning student can list the incoming student on the application. 

Please note:  Incoming freshman will begin choosing non-llc rooms on March 15, 2019.  The Housing Office would like to finalize returning student assignments before the incoming students begin non-llc selections.  You will be emailed confirming your assignment.  If you do not notify the Housing Office of any changes you will be asked to stay where assigned until the second week of classes in the fall when room changes will be allowed again. The Housing Office strives to meet student preferences, but it is not guaranteed. Please check your MyHousing portal periodically to review your assignment and roommate information.
