Mclean Hall

Traditional residence halls are available to select as a preference in the MyHousing area of the myShip portal. Due to overall housing occupancy and availability, traditional housing may not be available or guaranteed. It's common that your roommate and others living on your hall become the closest friends for life.

Single rooms in the traditional hall may be requested by current students, incoming freshman, and incoming transfer students after opening as space permits. 

You can use MyCollegeRoomie to look for roommates.  You can enter the information in the MyHousing portal under Roommate/Room Selection.  If you are unable to enter a roommate you can email your request to housing@ship.edu.  If you do not request a roommate one will be assigned.  The university reserves the right to consolidate students who have vacancies in their rooms.

Students apply by completing the preference in the MyHousing portal under update information.  If it is offered in a room selection process you can also select it there under the room selection tab.

You and your future roommate use the MyHousing Portal via MyShip to request a room in the traditional hall in the living preference tab.

Rooms start at $2,650 per student per semester in 2019-20 in traditional residence halls. For more information, please see the pages for individual halls.
