For Returning Resident Students:

During the Spring semester, current residential students who plan to return to housing for the following academic year have the opportunity to select their room and roommate during the Room Selection Process (Keep My Same Room Day, Priority Room Selection Day, or General Room Selection). Only residents that are registered by the established deadline will be able to participate in Keep My Room Day or Priority Room Selection Day.

Late residents will be able to participate in the General Room Selection (residents are able to select their building, room, and roommate). After General Room Selection ends (June 1), residents may still apply for housing, however, based on availability, a room and roommate is selected for you.

For Commuter Students:

During the Spring semester, current MVSU commuter students, who are interested in on-campus housing for the following academic year, have the opportunity to select their room and roommate during the General Room Selection.
