Housing Sign-Up for First-Year and Transfer Students
2023-2024 academic year housing selection
After being admitted and paying your $175 enrollment reservation deposit, you'll be sent an email to your CMICH account containing our Residential Community Living Guide that contains important housing information.
You're three easy steps away from your new home at CMU! Please read the following steps carefully to understand the online housing sign-up process.
Step 1: Start your housing application.
The housing application will open at 9 a.m. Monday, Jan. 9. Check your CMICH email for our Residential Community Living Guide with important housing information.
Log into housing.cmich.edu with your CMU global ID and password. If you do not remember your global ID or password, contact the CMU Help Desk at 989-774-3662.
In the housing application, you'll select your meal plan, fill out a lifestyle profile and create roommate groups. All steps can be revisited in the application.
Step 2: Submit your first housing payment of $350 by May 1, 2023.
To defer/postpone, please email email@example.com with your name and student ID number.
To pay by electronic check or credit card, log into centrallink.cmich.edu using your global ID and password and select View/Pay my Bill.
Please allow 48 hours from the date of application for the first housing charge to appear on your account.
Step 3: Select your housing assignment.
