Can I select my own room or is it assigned?

All returning students for fall 2017 are able to select a room electronically until April 20, 2018. Students may also visit the neighborhood housing specialist for the hall they are looking to move into. 

Do I have to live on campus?

All students with 0-28 credits (including transfers) are required to live on campus. Many students choose to continue living on for two or more years to take advantage of academic resources, delicious dining, and fantastic student events!

How do I learn more about potential roommates?

  • We recommend using the RoomSync Facebook app to connect with other students at MSU and find a roommate match. Visit https://apps.facebook.com/roomsync/ to get started. If you have questions about using the RoomSync app, please contact the Housing Assignments Office at liveon@msu.edu.
  • You can also select a roommate from people you already know (friends, current students, etc.)! You must know the PIN and meal plan choice for the person you want as your roommate.
  • The Pin can be selected by logging into your iLiveOn account, clicking “Manage your housing options” then selecting Pin for roommate selection.

How do I select a single room?

  • Some rooms are already designated as a single.
  • You can tell which rooms are singles when you do the following:
    • Look for rooms with one bed
    • Click on bed
    • Click on room link under Room Details
    • Room Description will say Single or Permanent Single

How do I sign-up for housing WITH a roommate?

Once you have identified your new roommate

  • If you are selecting your own room online, you must “pull in” your roommate in the online housing system using the PIN that they created in their own iLiveOn account. You must know the PIN and dining plan choice for the person you want as your roommate.

*If you have three roommates and would like to pull in two of them as suitemates you can do so based on room availability, or you can pull in all three roommates into a quad in Akers.

  • Each student will receive an email with their designated sign-up time on Oct. 31, 2017. You can log in to your iLiveOn account during or after that time to select your room and pull in a roommate. Simply follow the on-screen instructions.
  • One person will need to complete the reservation process online for the pair or entire group. We suggest you designating the person with the highest class level or the earliest assignment date to do so.
  • Every person that will be “pulled in” as a roommate must create a PIN in their own iLiveOn account and share that PIN with the person completing the reservation process.
  • When choosing a room in the online reservation system, look for available rooms with two or more open bed spaces.

*If you do not select a room by April 20, 2018 you can visit the Housing Assignments office and they can assign you manually until May 1, 2018.

How do I sign-up for housing WITHOUT a roommate?

  • Log in to your iLiveOn account and follow the on-screen instructions for selecting a room. You can skip the roommate step and look for rooms with one bed space available which will give you many more options!

How will I be notified of my housing assignment?

You can see your assignment via your iLiveOn account at https://liveon.msu.edu/iliveon/login.html.
