How to Apply


1.) Review your residency requirements and options

Depending on your age or the amount credit hours you've accumulated, your housing and dining options may differ from other students. Make sure you meet the requirements to avoid any issues with the room selection process. View our policies to learn more. In addition to housing and dining options, there are also community options for you to consider. Check out the Learning Communities tab to find out more.


2.) Login to myHousing

The first step to the room application process is to login to MyHousing using your Missouri S&T username and password.

3.) Agree to the terms and conditions

If this is the first time you've logged in to myHousing for this term, 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 2018" when updating your preferences.

4.) Make any roommate requests

You may request up to 3 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. 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 as multiple people logging in at the same time who have requested one another as roommates may cause a problem with the MyHousing system.

5.) Select your 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 2018" 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.

6.) Choose your dining options

Select the Dining plan you would like to have for the 2018-19 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.



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!

Learning Communities

Living Learning Communities

Living Learning Communities (LLCs) are residential settings that promote learning outside of the classroom. Within learning communities, you'll experience an environment where you can learn from other residents, as well as from program opportunities. They provide you the opportunity to further develop skills related to your own success while contributing to the learning of others. In the 2018-2019 school year, you'll have the opportunity to join the Residential Commons' Global Awareness community or University Commons' Entrepreneurship and Innovation community, or you can start your own living community with our connections community application.


What are Connection Communities?

The connections program offers a unique community development approach by affording students the opportunity to shape the identity of unique, self-directed environments surrounding a common theme, issue, or interest. With the assistance of a Resident Assistant, students develop activities and community standards through a peer leadership approach with accountability measures established by Residential Life staff. Residents participating in the Connections Community program will be housed in Farrar, Buehler, or University Commons.

Selecting a Room

What if I can't see the room I want for next year?

How do I know that my room selection went through? Will I receive a confirmation?

You will receive an e-mail to your S&T e-mail account, and you will see the room selection on your MyHousing home screen.



I want my same room, and I want to pick my roommate. Can I do that?

No, picking your same room is an individual decision. Once same room sign up has completed and open room sign up has started, your preferred roommate can select your room if it is still available.


How do I select a roommate or suitemate?

After logging into MyHousing, select Room Selection then Roommates/Suitemates. For best results, enter your preferred roommate's name or email address and select Begin Search.

I want to know who my roommate is before I make a room selection. Is there a way to get this information?

The only way to know who is going to be your roommate before you select a room, is to agree to be a roommate with someone. Otherwise, you won't know who your roommate is going to be until after you select your room.

That's fine, but a roommate will be placed with you. Your roommate will be either a fellow returning resident, or an incoming freshman or transfer student.

We will not consolidate you with anyone who is not on your chosen floor.
