First Year Students

The Residence Agreement is for the entire 2019-2020 Academic Year.
If you will not be a registered student on campus for the entire 2019-2020 year, do not sign and enter into this agreement.

Step 1: Fill out your Fall 2019/Spring 2020 Housing Agreement and pay your deposit, this is not optional for first-year students.

  • Login to MyHousing portal with your SRU username and password.

  • Before beginning to complete your housing materials, you will need:

    1. Credit card or banking information for an electronic check for the $175 housing deposit.

    2. Date of Meningitis Vaccination

  • Under the Applications menu, click the Fall 2019 Application. This will take you to the housing agreement.

  • Read the Agreement carefully.

  • Check the two check boxes below I Agree, then click "Continue..".

  • This will serve as your signature for housing for the 2019-2020 academic year. This is a legally binding contract for the entire (2 semesters) academic year.

  • After you sign your housing agreement, you will pay the housing deposit. The next step is not optional and without the deposit your application will not be processed.

  • After you have completed both the agreement and deposit you will be directed to sign your meal contract. You will be given a default Plan 11 meal plan for 15 meals per week with $255 flex.  Changes to your dining plan can be made after July 1st via the MyHousing portal.

  • You will also receive an email confirming that you have completed step 1 to your SRU email account.

  • You are almost finished. Please complete the next four (4) steps to complete the process. Read each option before responding.

Step 2: Complete the Housing Data Sheet

  • Click on the Button labeled Housing Data Sheet

  • Please complete this information to the best of your ability. This will assist in the roommate matching process. If you have any special needs or accommodations, please enter the information in the comments section. Be very specific. Students requesting specific housing due to medical concerns must also register with the Office of Students with Disabilities. The Office of Housing and Residence Life cannot accommodate requests due to medical concerns unless you are registered with the Office of Students with Disabilities.

  • Please also fill out the meningitis information. Students residing in the residence halls are required to have received the meningococcal vaccination. Please provide the date that vaccination was received.

  • Fill the form out in its entirety.

Step 3: Living-Learning Communities (Optional)

  • This is an optional step. If you have looked over the Living-Learning Community information, and feel that one of those communities looks right for you, please continue with this step.

  • If you or your roommate request is applying for an LLC, you must be aware that BOTH roommates must apply and be accepted to the same LLC or the LLC request will not be honored.

  • Click on the button labeled LLC Application.

  • Fill out the application in its entirety.

Step 4: Roommate/Suitemate Request (Optional)

  • Roommate requests must be mutual.

  • Roommate/suitemate requests will take preference over all other personal preferences. Your requested roommate/suitemate must also list you on their request.

  • Click on the button labeled Roommate/Suitemate Request.

  • Enter LastName and FirstName of your intended roommate request.

    • If the name of the student that you want to room with is not available, it is because they have not paid their deposit and signed their agreement.

    • You may return to MyHousing to update your requests at a later date if needed.

    • Once a student pays their deposit and signs their agreement, their name will appear in the list.

Step 5: You will receive your housing assignment at the orientation

  • We cannot wait to meet you. We will be working hard to make our placements over the next several months. We will not give assignments out over the phone. Do not hesitate to contact us with further questions at 724.738.2082.
