Housing Instructions

Incoming and Returning Housing Students
Incoming students will complete the housing agreement and $200 deposit in the admission's portal first. 

Students will use the MyHousing portal within MyShip to complete their housing.
Go to:  MyShip, Student, Ship Life, Connect to MyHousing. 

Returning students for Fall 2024 and Spring 2025 will be offered housing on November 28, 2023, at 10:00 a.m.  The Housing Office is currently waiving the $200 deposit until February 23, 2024. When required deposits can be paid via credit card or eCheck online. Housing deposits are non-refundable. Students can sign the housing agreement.  They will receive an email invitation to MyCollegeRoomie.  Students who signed the housing agreement by 2/19/2024 will be able to participate in the room selection if they are not already assigned to a room.  Students signing agreements after Monday, 2/19/2024 will be added to the room selection process after 3 p.m. on Thursday, 2/22/2024. Any student who signed an agreement but is not assigned should be able to mutually match with another student and the students who are already in the room selection process can pick the room and pull them into it. 

Students can begin matching roommates on November 18, 2023.  The roommates should mutually match first.  The first of the matching students to select a room will pull the other students into the room when room selection begins on February 13, 2024.  When room selection opens on February 13, 2024 there will be a "must fill the suite" rule. Once students have been given a chance to fill suites with the matching roommates the room selection will be open to any student to pick into any vacancy.  A limited number of partial suites will be made available for students who can't fill the suite. Students will see all available rooms and what becomes available until they are assigned. The C, F, and E suites will go quickly so it is best to have the matching roommates lined up before room selection begins to get the best opportunity to get one of the individual bedroom or D suites. If students do not select their own rooms the Housing Office will continue to watch for their room type preferences and assign them to a room at some point before May 1st. Students can enter preferences in the MyHousing portal. Any additional preferences can be communicated by email to    

Incoming Students will sign the housing agreement or commuter/exemption in the Admissions Portal.  Shortly after becoming a housing student each student will receive an invitation to MyCollegeRoomie.  Once a student determines who they want to live with they can match roommates in the appropriate room selection process. Room selections will begin on Tuesday, November 7, 2023 at 9:00 a.m. There are several incoming room selection processes for different Living Learning Communities (LLC) and general first year student rooms.  The first of the matching roommates to select a room will pull the others into the room.  Please make sure you are in agreement of the room type before selecting a room as room selections are final.  Students who do not select their own rooms will be placed by the Housing Office at some point before billing in July, 2024.  Students can see available rooms until they are assigned, so if you do not see the room type you want, you can wait to see if anything becomes available until you are assigned.

Graduate Students Incoming graduate students can complete the housing agreement in the Admissions portal and current graduate students can sign the housing agreement in the MyHousing portal for 2024-2025.  The Housing Office will make graduate student assignments in Mowrey Hall and post the information in the MyHousing portal.
