Apply for housing

All transfer students, with a few exceptions, are required to live in on-campus housing for two semesters. After you have submitted your Advanced Enrollment Deposit (AED), you will complete your housing contract 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 deposit and housing contract as soon as you decide to enroll at MSU.

Once you complete your housing contract, you'll receive information from Residence Education and Housing Services (REHS) about 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 assignments by early August.

  • Spring semester students will be notified of their housing assignments by late December.

If you meet the housing exception criteria and choose to live off campus, make sure to check out our off-campus housing options.
