MSU Home :: The Housing Process

For new to housing students, getting a room assignment can sometimes be a cumbersome and difficult process to navigate. At Morehead State, we strive to make the housing process as simple as possible and as easy to manage as it can be. This is how the process looks for new to housing students:

  1. Apply to Morehead State University and be accepted.
  2. Once you have received your new MSU email address and your University ID number you can apply online for a university housing assignment (Living on campus is required unless you are eligible for a housing wavier. Please click here for more information)
  3. A room assignment will not be made for you until we also receive a paid housing deposit. Your $100 deposit can be paid at SOAR, paid online, a check or money order mailed in to the housing office, your credit card information can be given over the phone by calling the housing office, or you can stop by in person in the Office of Housing in the lower level of Grote-Thompson Hall.
  4. Once an application and housing deposit have both been submitted, then an assignment will be made. Please note that assignments are given on a first come first served basis contingent on the date of the housing deposit. The sooner the deposit is paid, the better the chance you have of being assigned to your preferred buildings and with preferred roommates.
  5. Once an assignment is made, an email will be sent to your Morehead State email address with your building, room, roommate, and roommate contact information. If there is something incorrect on that notification or if you have questions, it is imperative that you contact our office as soon as possible to correct it. Email is the fastest mode of communication, and please include your ID number, contact info, and a description of your specific issue or concern.
  6. Check the website for move in information, dates, and details.
