Reapplication for S&T Students

Choosing your room is easier than ever with myHousing. Just sign your agreement, pick your roommates, and choose your room.

What is Reapplication?

Reapplication is the process by which residents reapply for housing for the following school year. It's an online process where residents choose their new roommates, rooms, and meal plans, as well as electronically sign their 2020-2021 housing agreement. Students reapplying have a variety of benefits including our scholarship program, ability to apply for their large group to be assigned early into University Commons, and ability to pick their room before other students. You can find information about all of these options and more below.

Residential Life will be offering select undergraduate students incentive scholarships for remaining in the residence halls during the 2020-2021 academic year.  Scholarships will be offered according to the following criteria:

  •  Students who have previously completed 4, 5, 6, or 7 semesters in the residence halls and have an estimated family contribution (EFC) of $0 will receive a $4000 award ($2000 each semester).
  •  Students who have previously completed 4, 5, 6, or 7 semesters in the residence halls, are Pell eligible, and have an estimated family contribution (EFC) greater than $0 will receive a $3000 award ($1500 each semester).
 

 Please note the following rules and conditions regarding these scholarships:

  • Should the housing agreement be cancelled and the student moves out of the residence hall prior to the conclusion of the semester, the full scholarship will be rescinded.
  • Students who receive discounted or no-cost housing (e.g. RAs), will not be eligible for these scholarships.
  • Scholarship dollars will be disbursed ten days prior to the first day of classes for the given semester if the student has an active housing agreement and room assignment for the semester and meets the criteria for a scholarship.
  • Summer terms do not count as a “semester” of residence.
  • A past semester will only count towards eligibility if the student lived in hosing for 50% or more of the semester.
  • Students who have lived in the residence halls less than 4 semesters or more than 7 semesters are not eligible for a scholarship.
  • The scholarship is available only to undergraduate students.
  • Students must be enrolled to receive this scholarship.
  • Students who qualify for a housing scholarship will see it autmatically applied to their account with no forms necessary.

During the 2020-2021 school year, students living in the residence halls who have completed 4 semesters living in the halls will receive reimbursement for a parking pass near their hall. Students who qualify will receive an email with further instructions on April 1st on how to get their pass. 

The Honors Community is designed for students who are selected for Missouri S&T's Honors Academy. As part of the Honors learning community, you will live and develop connections with other students enrolled in the Honors program on campus. Students will live together on the fourth floor of University Commons and participate in shared programs, field trips, and social activities including:

  • Themed dinners or coffee/refreshment events hosted by faculty
  • Semester outings (e.g. Laser tag, mini-golf, etc) with the Dr. Cawlfield, Vice Provost for Academic Support
  • Regular community events
  • Honors themed incentive program aimed to promote personal development, social engagement, & academic focus
  • Priority selection for Residential Life study abroad experience

 

Please note that the timelines for reapplying to live in the Honors community is different from regular room sign-up. Students wishing to stay in the Honors Community but change rooms must email reslife@mst.edu no later than March 2nd. Students wishing to stay in their same room will complete the Same Room process between March 3rd and March 6th.

We want to give students who are interested in living in an 8-person UC apartment (4 double rooms) with eight people the opportunity to fill those whole units early in the room selection process while there are still whole units available. Otherwise, apartments start to become partially filled with one or two people at a time, and it's hard to find a unit for a group of eight.

Groups of eight who fill out and submit the Large Group Application and UC Large Group Roster prior to March 2nd at noon will have the chance to be assigned together as a group to a fully open UC apartment. Residential Life will assign these students between the end of same room sign up, but before same complex sign up begins.

How to Reapply

Before starting the reapplication process, we highly recommend reviewing your various housing options. Depending on your age, or the amount credit hours you've accumulated, your Living Options and Dining Options may differ from other students. Make sure you meet the requirements to avoid any issues with the room selection process by reviewing the new Residential Life Housing Policy.

Login to MyHousing using your Missouri S&T username and password and agree to the Terms and Conditions of the Residence Hall Contract under the Applications tab on the top menu. Select the term "2020 Housing Reapplication" when updating your preferences.

You may request up to 4 possible roommates/suitemates. If you plan to go through the same room process, you will not be able to request a different roommate because your current roommate has the opportunity to choose the same room. Decide ahead of time which roommate will log in to select the room as multiple people logging in at the same time who have requested one another as roommates may cause a problem with the MyHousing system.

Please note: Students participating in the Same Room sign-up will not be allowed to pick roommates to allow all students the opportunity to select their same room. 

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 2020" 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.

After selecting your room, select the dining plan you would like to have for the 2020-21 academic year. You may continue to come back to this site to update your dining plan until August 1. You won't be able to select your dining plan prior to selecting a room because your eligibility for certain plans is connected to the building you will live in.
