Housing Application Process

All new undergraduate students will apply for housing using their MyMichiganTech online account. Click here to log into MyMichiganTech.

Current, returning, transfer, and graduate applications to live in the residence halls are accepted until March 1 for the next academic year based upon availability.

Assignment Notification

You will be notified of your room assignment for the Fall semester on August 1 on your MyMichiganTech account. Spring and Summer Semester room assignments should be received two weeks prior to the first day of class for that semester. If you submit your housing materials after these dates, you will receive your residence hall assignment when you arrive on campus.

The following information will be included with your assignment notification:

Room assignment University address
Name(s) of roommate(s) Check-in date and time
Roommate(s) contact information Check-in location
First day of occupancy Room-and-board rate

For additional information, see the current room-and-board rates. See the Accounting department for a further breakdown of your housing bill and payment information.

Room Assignments

Room assignments are made on a first-come first-served basis depending on when we receive your housing application. You are encouraged, and it is in your best interest, to submit your application for housing as soon as possible to increase your likelihood of getting your housing preferences. If your first housing preference is filled to capacity when your application is received, your other housing preferences will still be considered by housing staff when making a room assignment. Online roommate matching is available from May 1 - 31 for the upcoming Fall semester.

Room Preference Changes

Prior to the University making room assignments, you may email Housing to change your preferences of hall, roommate, or meal plan. Once room assignments are made, no further changes may be made until the Room Change process begins after the second week of classes.

All preference change requests must be made by June 1 for the Fall semester, December 1 for the Spring Semester, and April 1 for the Summer session assignments. We will make every attempt to honor these requests but cannot guarantee them due to availability.
