On Campus Housing


How to Apply for Housing

Only students, who are currently admitted to the University, are eligible to apply for housing.  Students interested in living on campus should complete an online application for a Housing and Food Service Contract, inclusive of the non-refundable $200 application fee.The application fee is a processing fee that a small portion of which is applied to the support services and resources offered to students who choose to live on campus. Our office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. Because space is limited, students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.  Applications will be accepted until all assignments are made, at which point a waitlist will be created and students will be assigned based on space availability.

Special Housing Needs

The Office of Residence Life & Housing is committed to meeting the needs of students who request special accommodations to the best of its ability. Special considerations include: (1) disabilities such as mobility impairments, vision or hearing impairments (where physical accommodation or building adaptation may be required) or mental health concerns; and (2) religious reasons that require special accommodation.

If you are a student requesting a reasonable accommodation related to housing because of a diagnosed disability, please contact the Office of Student Disability Support Services (SDSS) to register with their office. You must complete the intake form found on the SDSS website and submit current supporting documentation regarding your request. Your request will be shared with the Office of Residence Life & Housing, but all information regarding your diagnosis will be kept confidential. More information can be found at www.morgan.edu/SDSS.

Your request will be reviewed by SDSS in consultation with Health Services, the Counseling Center, and other appropriate college offices. The goal of this review is to provide an on-campus housing accommodation that best meets your need. SDSS will then make a recommendation to the Morgan State University Office of Residence Life & Housing regarding your request for special accommodation.

You are not guaranteed housing once registered with SDSS and must complete all necessary requirements of the Office of Residence Life & Housing. For priority consideration for the fall semester, applications must be completed by June 1st. Spring semester assignments are based on space availability.
