New Housing Options 2014-2015

Page address:

Minnesota State Mankato attendance is growing as a direct result of our excellent faculty, academic programs and facilities.  Due to this growing popularity, there is more demand for residence community living. In response to this demand we have created additional room types you may be interested in choosing on your room selection preferences!  Requests placed by May 20, 2014 will have higher priority for these room types.

New housing accommodations are located throughout Crawford, McElroy, Preska, and Stadium Heights residence communities. Housing costs for these additional room options can be found at 2014-2015 Room Rates.

Based on the number of standard residence community spaces available, your room preferences, and the date of your housing application, some students may also be assigned a space in one of these new housing options for fall 2014-2015. These new spaces will be assigned as permanent living spaces on campus.
