On-Campus Housing

Signing Up for On-Campus Housing

Throughout this week, all students living in the residence halls will have the option of re-contracting. Sign-up for on-campus housing will begin Monday, January 16. Sign-up for on-campus housing includes Wadsworth Hall, McNair Hall, Douglass Houghton Hall, and Hillside Place.

Students who would like to live in the residence halls next year have the option of staying in their same room, moving to a different room in the same house, moving to a different room in the same residence hall, or moving to a different room in a different residence hall. The date and time students will be able to sign up for on-campus housing will depend on which option they choose, and how many credits they have earned. Below is the timeline for housing registration:

Living in the same room January 16
Displaced January 17 Displaced students cannot sign up for their same room and are given priority to select another room

For students planning on signing up for a room other than their current room, the number of credits they have will impact which day they can sign up. Students should plan on checking Banweb to verify how many credits they have, not including credits they are currently enrolled in this semester.

When a student signs up for a room, they will have the opportunity to request a roommate. The roommate requested will receive an email and may either accept or reject the request.

Sign-up for on-campus housing will end on Wednesday, January 26, at midnight. Students who sign up for on-campus housing in the first seven days will receive a special Michigan Tech hoodie. Students can visit the re-contracting website for details and restrictions.

After January 26, students interested in signing up for on-campus housing will be directed to go the Housing Office located at 153 Wadsworth Hall. To access the sign-up for on-campus housing website from January 16 to 26, students should go to http://www.housing.mtu.edu and click the sign-up icon. Students will be prompted to enter their ISO log in information. After selecting a room to live in for next academic year, students will then be able to sign their housing contracts electronically.

There are several benefits to living on campus. Check out the YouToo site to watch videos about why current students enjoy living in the resident halls so much!

Deciding where to live, whether on campus or off, is a big decision. I encourage your student to put lots of thought into where they would like to live for next academic year, as well as who they would like to live with.

Be sure to check back throughout the semester for weekly articles. Throughout the next couple of weeks, I will be writing about broomball, Winter Carnival, and how to be a successful student this spring. Here’s to the start of another great semester filled with new opportunities, fun activities, and exciting Michigan Tech traditions!

As always, please feel free to email me at seallen@mtu.edu with questions or comments.
