Reapplication for Current S&T Residents

What is Reapplication?

Reapplication is the process by which current residents reapply for housing for the following school year. It's an online process where residents electronically sign their 2024-2025 housing agreement, choose their roommates, room, and meal plan. 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 2024-2025 academic year.  Scholarships will be offered according to the following criteria:

  • Students living with us for their 5th, 6th, 7th, or 8th semester in the residence halls, and are Pell eligible, will receive a $2800 award ($1400 each semester).
  • Students must also complete their FAFSA by February 15, 2024 AND complete housing reapplication and room selection by February 18. 2024 to be eligible.

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and the student moves out of the residence hall prior to the conclusion of the semester, the full scholarship will be rescinded.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 housing for 50% or more of the semester.
  • Students who have lived in the residence halls less than 4 semesters or more than 8 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 automatically 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 how to obtain their pass after reapplication concludes. 

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 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.

Interested in living in a mixed gender group? Complete the housing agreement in the housing portal but skip the roommate pages. Instead, fill out the Mixed Gender Contract and return it to Residential Life at or 1102 N Rolla Street by January 23. We will match your group together on our end. If you have done this contract in previous years you will need to re-submit.  

Timeline for Reapplication

Week of November 6
Watch for an email regarding the full reapplication process and deadlines.

November 6 - January 21
Review deadlines and housing requirements and speak with your RA about any questions you have regarding reapplication.

November 6 - January 21
Take a look at your housing options. Virtual tours of each hall are available on the individual hall pages here

Log into the housing portal to sign your housing contract and create any roommate groups. 

  • You will want to do this BEFORE your date for room selection. The housing contract must be signed by all parties before roommate groups can be formed. Also, any roommate groups (optional) will need to be fully matched (all requests sent AND accepted) before selecting a room as a group. 

Students wishing to remain in their same room will go to the housing portal between noon on January 22nd and 11:59pm on January 24th to choose their same room.

You cannot pull in roommates during this time. Also, if you do same room you cannot later pull in roommates (though someone can feel free to search for your room and assign themselves to it later). If you wish to pull in roommates you should participate in a later process for same complex or open sign-up.


Interested in living in a mixed gender group? Complete the housing contract in the housing portal but skip the roommate pages. Instead, fill out the Mixed Gender Contract and return it to Residential Life at or 1102 N Rolla St. by January 23rd. We will match your group together on our end. If you have done this contract in previous years you will need to re-submit.

Students wishing to remain in their same complex in a different room will go to the housing portal between noon on January 29th and 11:59pm on January 31st to pick their new room in their same complex.

Residents can assign themselves during this time, or one member of a roommate pair/group can assign the whole group. 

During same complex someone currently living in one complex can bring in and assign roommates from another complex. For example, if Joe Miner lives in UC and is matched with Wade Wilson in RC, Joe Miner can assign both to an open UC space during same complex sign-up. 


Open sign-ups are available on the housing portal according to the following schedule based on credits (cumulative + current):

90+ credit hours: anytime after noon on February 5
60+ credit hours: anytime after noon on February 6
30+ credit hours: anytime after noon on February 7
Less than 30 credit hours: anytime after noon on February 8

Residents can assign themselves during this time, or one member of a roommate pair/group can assign the whole group. 

During open sign-up someone with more credits can pull in roommates with fewer credits. For example, if Peter Parker has 91 credits and is matched with Ned Leeds who has 45 credits, Peter can assign both to an open space space during open sign-up for those with 90+ credits.

Open sign-up ends at 11:59pm on February 18th. After February 18th, students who are not required to live on campus for the 2024-25 year will not be guaranteed housing though every effort will be made to house those requesting space.

How to Reapply

Before starting the reapplication process, we highly recommend reviewing your various housing options. Take a look at our housing Rates before making your housing decision. Depending on your age, or the amount of 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 Residential Life Housing Policy.

Log in to the housing portalNavigate to "Applications and Forms" on the home page and click "Reapplication (Current Residents)". There you will follow instructions to proceed through the application/contract and then continue on to roommate selection (next step).

When you click, "Agree & Continue" on your housing contract the next page will be your roommate profile.

  • You can fill this out if you don't have a specific roommate in mind but want to search for people to form a group with or want people to be able to search for you by this profile information.
  • If you don't want to form a roommate group you can un-check the box "display in roommate search results" and continue through.
  • If your intention is to only search for people you already know by name, you can choose whether to complete this step or not. 

When you click, "save & continue" on the profile page it will take you to the roommate search page.

  • You may form a group of up to 8 people (including you). Keep your desired room in mind when determining group size. You would only want a group of 8 if you intend to go into a University Commons 8 person suite. 
  • Follow instructions on this page to create a roommate group. You can search for roommates (known, by their profile info, or have the system suggest roommates), send requests, or accept/decline requests. When done select "save & continue"
  • Please note that you will only be able to search for other people who have also started this process. If the person you are looking for has not yet logged in to begin the process, feel free to continue through and return to this page later. 
  • Or, if you do not want to form a roommate group, you can skip by going right to "save & continue"

Please note: Students planning to participate in the Same Room sign-up may not want to form roommate groups. During same-room, all residents will get the opportunity to choose their same room individually, including your current roommate. During same complex and open sign-up one person from a roommate group or pair will log in and assign the whole group. 


After completing the above 2 steps, log into the housing portal on the time and date of the selection process you qualify for/want to participate in (find date specifics for each process in the time-line above)

During same room sign-up individuals can only assign themselves to the same bed space that they are currently in. 

During same complex or open sign-up, if you are part of a roommate group/pair, only 1 person needs to sign in to assign the whole group. If you are not part of a group, you can still log in and sign up individually during these processes. 

After selecting your room, select the dining plan you would like to have for the 2024-25 academic year. 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.

If you were assigned to a room by your roommate, you can log in and pick a meal plan as well. Once you are assigned to a room, if you log in and click “Reapplication (Current Residents)”>”Continue”> “Start Application” the system will jump you to where you last left off on the application. Because you already have a room assignment, the system will take you directly to the meal plan selection page. Select your meal plan and hit “save & continue”.
