2021-2022 Housing Signup

Residence Halls and Northwest Apartments:

At this time, CMU will require first and second-year students to live on campus for the 2021-2022 academic year.  If CMU waives the residency requirement in the future to allow students to live at home and take classes online, students will be able to cancel their Housing Contract without penalty. 

More information about CMU's residency requirement can be found here.

Housing signup for residence halls and Northwest Apartments for the 2021-2022 academic year will begin on January 19, 2021. The sooner you sign up, the more likely you are to receive housing of your choice. Priority placement over incoming freshmen and transfers ends June 1, 2021.
