Transferring in for the Spring Semester?

In addition to applying for spring-only housing, you may start applying for Fall 24 housing as soon as the housing application opens in October.

Step 1: Apply for Admission

Only admitted students may apply for housing.

Step 2: Confirm Enrollment

Enrollment Confirmation is the process that confirms a student's intent to enroll at Minnesota State University, Mankato.  Confirming enrollment does not commit a student to attending.  Students who plan to live on campus must confirm enrollment before they are allowed to apply for housing.

Step 3: Housing Application

*Do you see an orientation hold in E-services? You can click past this message and continue on to the housing application following the steps below. The hold does NOT prevent you from applying for housing.*

Using your StarID/password, complete the Housing Application in the Housing & Dining Portal. Click below for a step-by-step guide. Applications are first-come, first-serve and determine when you select your room so we encourage you to apply early.

If you are applying for 24-25 housing between October 2 and February 16, we will not ask for your room or roommate preference in the housing application. Why? Because you are on track to choose your own roommate and room in the spring.

If you are applying for 24-25 housing after February 16, you will be asked to rank your room type preferences because we will assign you to a room and roommate.

Step 4: Housing Contract

Housing Contracts are signed within the Housing & Dining Portal.  Housing Contracts are in effect for one academic year.  Once signed, the contract is legal and binding and cannot be broken (except in very specific circumstances). The terms and conditions should be understood prior to signing.

Step 5: Prepayment

A $250 prepayment is required to complete a student's reservation.  Your reservation is not complete until we receive your prepayment. Unlike a deposit, a student's prepayment is applied to the student's first semester room charges. A reduced prepayment may be available if you qualify.
