Room Renewal

Room renewal is for students currently living in university housing and/or current MSUM students. During room renewal, students will select their roommate(s), meal plan, and either claim their same room or select a different room for the following academic year. To participate in any phase of the room renewal period, residents must have a complete 2022-2023 Housing & Dining contract.

In order to apply for housing online, you will need your StarID username and password.

Room Renewal Timeline

The 2023-2023 Room Renewal period opens February 1, 2022. No Lottery Application needed as students come/call in on a date based on their earned credits and select a room (see below). This can be a single, suite, apartment, etc. Students hoping to live in the John Neumaier apartments or Nelson Upperclass Singles must have earned 24 credits by June 1 (not while dual-enrolled during high school). Students selecting a John Neumaier apartment must have all four residents selected or plans to buy out the apartment as a triple or double-as-a-single. Last year we rolled out a Returning Special Incentive and it was so popular we are doing it again! That means we are waiving the $50 prepayment and letting current students lock in next year at the 2021-2022 Room Rate! Learn more and to apply for our Returner Special. Take advantage of your time to select a room as they fill fast and are filled in a first-come, first-served format.
