Due to the number of new housing reservations and cancellations received over Winter Break, roommate information sometimes changes. We recommend checking your roommate information occassionally before the start of the spring semester. You can view your roommate assignment in E-services beginning Friday, December 18, 2015.

Your Room: Dimensions, Floor Plan, and Other Details

You will be able to view your room assignment in E-services beginning Friday, December 18, 2015. Once you know your room assignment, you can view details about your room, including mailing address, room layout, and other features by clicking here.

Cancellations and Your Housing Contract

Reservations may be cancelled in writing, online, or by email until Thursday, January 7, 2016. Cancellations are not accepted after Thursday, January 7, 2016. $200 of the $250 prepayment is refundable if your cancellation is received (or postmarked) by Friday, December 11, 2015.

Please make certain you understand the terms of your Housing Contract. Your signed contract is on file and we will send you a copy upon request. This contract is legally binding for the remainder of the academic year. Pay particular attention to the Cancellation and Release sections of the contract (Sections 9 and 10) and the Check-in and Check-out section (Section 13a).


Billing statements are not mailed to students. Students can obtain account information and payment procedures online through E-services.

Move-In Day

Spring Semester Move-In Day is Friday, January 8, 2016. This is the first day students may move in to the residence communities. Students may move in throughout the weekend as well. Please check-in at the front desk of your residence community to obtain the key to your room.  Front desks are open from 8 a.m. to 3 a.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Your Meal Plan

Please also verify within the online housing application that you have selected a meal plan. If you have not yet selected a meal plan or if you wish to change your selected plan, you may do so online through E-services. You may also send us an e-mail. Please include your name, TechID, and the plan you would like. Students who have not selected a meal plan by Sunday, January 3, 2016 will be assigned to the Maverick 14 meal plan if they will be living in the Crawford, Julia Sears, McElroy, or Preska Residence Community and the Maverick Flex meal plan if they will be living in the Stadium Heights Residence Community. Meal plan changes may be made through the Friday of the second week of class. The first meal offered by University Dining Services will be the lunch on Friday, January 8, 2016 starting at 11 a.m.


If you would like to bring a car to campus for the spring semester, visit the Parking and Transportation Services website to apply for a parking permit or you may purchase one at the Cashier's Office.  At the time of application, indicate your lot preference. Residence hall students typically purchase Green permits which cost $124 for the spring semester.

Stadium Heights residents are not required to purchase a MSU parking permit.  Students assigned to Stadium Heights who have applied for a parking permit may request a refund as parking in is included in the apartment rate for the Stadium Heights lot.

Computer Recommendations: Connecting to the Internet in Your Residence Hall Room

To get connected to the wired Internet in your room, you will need to bring a computer with an Ethernet adapter (or card) and a Cat 5e network patch cable in order to connect your computer to the network port in your room.

To access the internet through a wireless connection in the public areas in the residence halls and on campus, bring a computer that also has a wireless Ethernet adapter or card. You will connect to the wireless network using your StarID/password when prompted.


ITS recommended configurations for desktop and laptop computers can be found here. If you are buying a new computer, it is best to purchase one with an Ethernet adapter pre-installed. This can be on-board, or a separate card already installed as long as the machine has an Ethernet port. You can also buy a separate Ethernet card for your system.
