Signing a Housing Contract

The on campus residential experience plays a critical role in ensuring our student’s success. It allows students to learn skills related to independent and communal living, establish a strong social network, and connect with multiple support resources available that gives them the foundation to succeed. With this as the guiding principle, all MTU first year students are required to live on campus to maximize their success.

The housing application for new undergraduate students typically goes live in January by way of our HuskyHouse housing services portal (yellow button above).

All students living in the residence halls are required to have a qualifying residential meal plan to ensure that students have the necessary nutritional support during the academic year. Learn more on our Residential Dining website.

Completing Your Roommate Profile

Once you have signed your contract in HuskyHouse and successfully guaranteed yourself on-campus housing, the next most important step is to put together your profile and roommate preferences so you can begin to connect with fellow Huskies. New students can begin completing their Roommate Profiles on March 6 and can make changes through June 10. 

This information helps us optimize your assignment preferences and is a necessary step to participate in Roommate Matching. The information you provide will be available to other incoming Huskies, and will assist you and others in identifying an ideal roommate! If you don't select a roommate, this information will help us to help us match your preferences to a roommate during the auto assignment process. 

Roommate Matching and Assignments

New students do not select their specific room but do have the opportunity to select their roommate. Online roommate matching for new students is available from March 6 - June 10 for the upcoming Fall semester. 

Matched roommates are the first to be assigned to a room, so be sure to participate in the Roommate Matching process! Here are some items to consider when matching with a roommate: 

  • You don't have to be best friends. If you're looking to be BFFs, say that now so you all know if you're on the same page!
  • You may be into really different things but make great roommates because you have similar habits.
  • Be honest about your habits!
