Quick Reference

Room Selection Quick Reference Guide

Do you want to sign-up for a room for the 2016-17 academic year?
Follow these easy steps!

  1. If you are applying for a Connections Community (5-20 people together) in Farrar, Buehler, or Sally you will complete and return your application by February 12, 2016. Applications can be found on the room selection website (

  2. If you have a roommate choice, log into MyHousing and indicate your roommate selection between February 1, 2016 and your room selection date and time.

    • If you haven't logged in prior to this time, you will be prompted to agree to the Terms and Conditions of the Residence Hall Contract.
    • All requests must be mutual for you to select a room together.
    • You may request up to 3 other roommates/suitemates.
    • If you plan to go through the same room process, you will not be able to pull in another roommate. Your current roommate has the opportunity to choose that room therefore "pulling in" roommates is not allowed in this process.
    • Connections Community applications do not need to select a roommate through MyHousing.
    • Decide ahead of time which roommate will log in to select the room. Only one roommate will need to do this. Multiple people logging in at the same time who have requested one another as roommates may cause a problem with the MyHousing system.
  3. Log into MyHousing and update your personal preferences. This will allow us to better match you with roommate/suitemates should a vacancy exist in your room between now and the start of the Fall 2016 semester.

    • If you haven't logged in prior to this time, you will need to agree to the Terms and Conditions of the Residence Hall Contract under the Applications tab on the top menu.
    • Select the term "Fall 2016" when updating your preferences.
  4. Log into MyHousing on the time and date of the selection process for the building you wish to live in and the time for which you qualify.

    • Review your roommate selections. If you have selected a roommate that has not selected you (not mutual) you will need to de-select them prior to picking a room.
    • Select "Fall 2016" before trying to select a room (it should default to this term).
    • You will see "select room" or "select suite". If you choose "select suite" you will be able to choose any available bedroom in that suite or apartment.
    • If you have roommate requests click on "select suite".
    • Assign yourself and your roommates to your preferred beds.
  5. After selecting your room, click on Dining.

    • Select the Dining plan you would like to have for the 2016-17 academic year. You may continue to come back to this site to update your Dining plan until August 1.
    • Note: You cannot select your dining plan prior to selecting a room because your eligibility for certain plans is connected to the building you will live in.
  6. You are finished. You will receive a room confirmation e-mail to your Missouri S&T email account with a confirmation of your chosen room and dining plan. We look forward to having you back on campus next year!
