Participation in the COVID-19 Early Detection Program (Spartan Spit) is mandatory for all on-campus residents this summer. You will submit a weekly saliva sample to remain compliant and not be subject to the student disciplinary process. If you were registered for spring semester, you will not need to re-register for summer; new residents must register at Please note, the summer housing contract signed by those applying for summer housing includes the following language:

  • I am agreeing to comply with all of Michigan State University’s COVID-19 directives, as they may change from time to time (including, without limitation, the university’s influenza vaccination directive); I am also agreeing to participate in the university’s COVID-19 medical surveillance and testing programs.
  • I am giving my written consent to being tested for COVID-19 via collection of saliva, or nasal or throat swab, including, but not limited to, initial testing upon arrival and periodic testing as required and directed by Michigan State University.    


Air conditioners will be available to rent by request for the summer sessions for a one-time fee of $150. Students will not need a medical approval. Requests will be taken beginning May 4, through July 16. ACs will be installed within two business days of request, beginning May 6. Students approved for summer housing will receive request instructions via email with their summer housing assignment.
