Housing Applications

Please check your SRU email regularly regarding your student housing. The MyHousing Portal is used to confirm your room, select meal plans, and find contact information regarding your roommate(s).


Incoming freshmen who have submitted the $90 enrollment deposit to admissions will receive information regarding on-campus housing for Fall 2024. Every Monday, emails will be sent to those students who submitted their enrollment fee that prior week. Please get in the habit of checking your SRU email. We will send a copy to your personal email initially. Once you receive that email with specific housing information, you will be directed to log into the MyHousing Portal. Under the application tab, select "New Students" under the Application/Agreement tab. New students admitted starting Fall 2024 are generally required to reside on campus for two years. Refer to the Residence Requirement tab.


For Fall 2024-Spring 2025, transfer students are not required to reside on-campus. Transfers are welcome to commute or secure off-campus options. (Refer to Residence Requirement). If an incoming Fall 2024 transfer needs to reside on campus, an on-camus agreement will be active when the student is officially enrolled. Do not sign an on-campus agreement if you plan to commute or reside off campus. On-campus students should expect to have suitemates/roommates, and can select an enrolled suitemates/roommate as part of the agreement process. Room styles available will primarily be double rooms in traditional halls (North/Rhoads), and triple rooms in traditional halls and residential suites.
