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. All students under 21 are required to live on campus, provided space is available, unless they apply and are approved for an exemption by Residence Life.

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 room preferences in the application. Room preferences 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. 

Students who apply between the "Apply for housing By:" and "Match with a roommate through My College Roomie by:" dates will not have an opportunity to request a roommate through My College Roomie. 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 31st will be assigned periodically until the start of the semester. Please contact Residence Life if you have any questions: 970-248-1536.
