Housing Residency Policy

Colorado Mesa University is committed to the success of our students. Knowing that students who live on campus and engage in activities have a greater success rate for graduation, CMU has a two-year on campus living requirement. The University requires that all students admitted as new freshmen and transfer students who graduated from high school less than two years before their term of CMU/CMU Tech enrollment live in a residence hall for four semesters, subject to availability of space, unless they request and are granted an exemption prior to fulfilling the four-semester requirement.  

Applying for Housing

Incoming Students

Continuing Students 

After Applying

Application confirmations are sent via email to the student's CMU email account. Students are advised to login to their MyHousing page to review and update their personal and living preferences as well as view upcoming room assignment processes.

Room Preferences and Assignment Process

Incoming students are assigned using an automated matching process based on the living requests in the application. Living requests are not guaranteed, so include multiple choices on the application. Housing assignment details can be viewed on MyHousing.

Students will be sent an email invitation to My College Roomie the day following completing a housing application. All roommate requests must be made through My College Roomie. For a roommate request to be considered, both parties must mutually request each other in My College Roomie and become a match. Roommate requests are not guaranteed

Those wanting to request a roommate through My College Roomie should apply for housing a minimum of 4 days prior to the roommate matching deadline. 

Those who apply after July 30th will be assigned periodically until the start of the semester. Please contact Residence Life if you have any questions: 970-248-1536.
