Apply for housing

Although transfer students who have completed more than 28 credits are not required to live in a Michigan State University residence hall or on-campus apartment, doing so is strongly recommended. The process of submitting your Advanced Enrollment Deposit (AED) will determine whether you are required to live on campus.

After you have submitted your AED, you will complete your housing contract (if necessary) and select your preferences and meal plan. To request a roommate, follow the directions on the housing contract. If your potential roommate has not yet received an admission decision, you should still submit your AED and housing contract as soon as you decide to enroll at MSU.

Once you complete your housing contract, you will receive information from Residence Education and Housing Services (REHS) regarding the housing assignment process. All students will have the option to select their own room or be assigned to a room by REHS. More information on the requirements and deadlines will be provided by REHS.

Fall semester students will be notified of their housing assignment by early August; spring semester students will be notified of their housing assignment by late December.
If you are not required to live on campus, you will want to investigate off-campus housing options.
