Welcome to Housing Services
FALL 2013 ROOM ASSIGNMENTS
Beginning May 16, 2013, all students assigned for fall may view room assignments by logging in to myHousing (at right) with a MaineStreet logon and password and clicking on the “check my assignment” button. If the button is not visible when logging in, it means a room has not yet been assigned. As the assignment process is ongoing, students who have not yet been assigned are advised to check again every few days.
Roommate and room change requests are not accepted at this time due to space limitations.
HOUSING APPLICATIONS FOR FALL
For incoming first-year and transfer students: Please note that housing is not guaranteed after May 5, 2013. We will continue to assign from housing applications on file as long as space is available and as cancellations are received.
For returning students: Limited space is still available for eligible students (Junior status for Fall 2013 or above) in upperclass suite-style housing. For information on upperclass suite-style housing, please click on Residence Halls (at right) and then click “On-Campus Apartments”. We will continue to assign returning students who are not eligible for suite-style housing as space becomes available through cancellations. Please note that on-campus housing is not guaranteed.
ROOM/BOARD CANCELLATION FEES
Due to a shortage of on-campus housing, cancellation fees are suspended until July 1, 2013. On July 1, the cancellation fee will be $150.00. After July 1, please follow the Room Cancellation Fee Schedule for Fall 2012 – Spring 2013 and note that the $500.00 cancellation fee will begin on September 4. An updated schedule will be posted as soon as possible.
