To be eligible for summer housing, all previous housing charges must be paid in full and your account must be free of any holds. Any MSUM student must be enrolled in at least one summer class or registered for Fall classes to live in summer housing.
Summer housing check-in will begin on Monday, May 20 at the Snarr Desk.
You will receive your keys for summer housing at the Snarr desk, so you can move your belongings and be ready for housing staff to check you out of your current room. Check out of your current room must be completed on Wednesday, May 22, 5pm.
If you are not contracted for Fall 2019, you must check out of your room by Monday, August 5, 5pm.
If you are enrolled for fall semester AND you have a housing contract for fall, you may stay through the interim housing dates at the summer housing rate. At the beginning of August, you will be notified by Housing when you will move into your fall room assignment.
Summer housing check-in begins Saturday, June 1 at 5pm. If you need summer housing accommodations until you are able to check in to your apartment, you will need to apply to live in South Snarr Hall for the interim. Please refer to the Summer Housing Rates for South Snarr.
John Neumaier summer housing ends on July 31st. If you are not staying with us in the fall, you need to be checked out of your apartment by noon on this day.
Interim housing is available only for those students who have a fall room assignment. All other students must be checked out by August 5, 5pm.
If you are living in Dahl, Grantham, Holmquist or Snarr Complex, your room is furnished with a bed with lofting capabilities built into it. You do not need to rent a separate loft kit.
If you live in Nelson Hall, you are equipped with a full size bed (non-loftable).
Homemade or purchased lofts are not permitted.
If you live in Ballard Hall, you are able to rent a bed loft through College Loft Services. To rent a loft, please visit College Loft Services or call 218.354.2107 for more information. Homemade or purchased lofts are not permitted.
A limited number of MicroFridge (combination refrigerator, freezer, and microwave) will be available for rental on a first come first serve basis. They are $75 per semester. Reserve a microfridge online. If you reserve prior to the official Move-In Day, your MicroFridge will be in your room when you move in.
If you have special circumstances and need to move in early, submit the request by filling out the Early Arrival Form. Please be advised that submitting this form does not guarantee permission to arrive early into the residence halls and apartments.
You will only be granted early arrival for employment, Athletics, group organizations or extensive travel circumstances. Your request may need approval from your supervisor, advisor, coach or representative. We will contact them for approval.
Housing & Residential Life will notify you if your request is approved or denied through your campus email address. Information that is not supplied or is incorrect can delay your request.
As the academic year comes to an end the residence halls are preparing to close. Below outlines dates, times, and procedures to help you complete your responsibilities for your move-out process for all MSUM locations. If you have questions, please ask a staff member in your hall or stop by the Housing Office in Ballard 120.
