The Fall 2020 Incoming Student Housing Application opens November 1st, 2019 at 9:00 am. Students are encouraged to apply early for housing. An application is not considered complete until the student (and parent/guardian if under 18) has signed The Housing and Dining Contract and paid the $150 Housing Deposit/Application Fee ($125 refundable deposit, $25 non-refundable application fee). Housing assignments will be made beginning February 1st, 2020. Students will be notified of their housing assignment at their CMU email. 

Assignments are based on the date of receipt of the housing application, required deposit, application fee and the Residency Hall and Dining Contract. Every effort will be made to accommodate your request.

 To make a roommate request, both students must list the First and Last Name and CMU ID (700#) on their housing applications.
