Students and Parents

Welcome to Shippensburg University Housing!

At Shippensburg University students can select your own roommates and rooms.  You will be able to search for potential roommates with My College Roomie. After deciding who you want to live with you have the option of selecting from 12 different Living Learning Communities or a non-Living Learning Community room.  Most of your individual housing will be completed in the MyHousing portal.  This website at describes the buildings, suite styles, and Living Learning Communities.  Floor plans, utility services, and other important housing details are described as well.   

Students will receive breaks and closing information from the Housing Office through their Ship email accounts. A student who arrives early or stays during break periods will need permission. Belongings can remain in the suites throughout the academic year.  Agreements are for the full academic year unless a student requests special permission to stay one semester for graduation, student teaching, or studying abroad. Housing assignments usually do not change unless the student requests a room change after the second week of classes each semester. The Housing Office does reserve the right to consolidate rooms. Most residence maintenance and roommate issues are resolved through the residence life staff of the suites after the students move in.

Shippensburg University has a two-year housing requirement.  Each current student under 60 credits is subject to this policy.  Students who wish to be approved for exemption, can complete the request for exemption form on the website at:,forms.  Students not subject to the requirement or who are exempt can cancel their housing before June 1st of the upcoming academic year.  After June 1st they will need to complete a request to be released from housing for on the website at:, forms.

Graduate students are welcome to live in university housing in the suites or Mowrey Hall. Students should contact the Housing Office to establish the online agreement for the suites.  The Mowrey Hall agreement should be available in the MyHousing portal at MyShip, Student, Ship Life, Connect to MyHousing.   Once a housing agreement is in place students will be placed in a room in Mowrey Hall by the Housing Office.  Most assignments will be posted before bills are posted online.
