Welcome Spartan Class of 2026!

Welcome to MSU! We are excited to be your home for the next two years. MSU has a two-year live-on requirement to support your academic success; studies show students who live on campus for two years are more likely to graduate.   

Visit our Neighborhoods page to become more familiar with our five neighborhoods and housing options, such as bathroom styles.

What you need to know now: 

  • Incoming students can now sign their housing contract after their Advanced Enrollment Deposit is made. 
  • UPDATED In May, incoming students will declare their Housing Preferences, which includes requesting a roommate and/or suitemates. 
  • We have partnered with My College Roomie to help incoming students find their potential roommate ahead of room assignments. Learn More 
  • Incoming students will not be selecting their own space. Students will indicate their housing preferences, which include bathroom style and chosen roommate if applicable, in the spring and be assigned a room in summer 2022.  
  • This will alleviate the stress of having to be online to select a space at a certain time, and to have to research every residence hall option to make a selection. 
  • There are limited housing exceptions for first-year students, which students can request through the Student Life website
