Applying For Campus Housing The First Time

Students who are new to NMU may apply for campus housing in one of two ways, they may apply online or may print an application and mail it to NMU with their $125 advance payment.  Note that students must have applied for and been accepted for admission to the University before applying for campus housing.  Please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions page for more information. 

Residence halls, primarily through the unique interpersonal environment and opportunities for involvement, are positively linked to many of the gains experienced by the students who live in them.  For this reason, NMU does have a housing requirement, and it is important that all students become familiar with the requirement before applying for campus housing.  While you can apply either online or through the mail, we'd prefer that new students apply online to make sure their housing preferences are listed as correctly as possible.

Applying Online

To apply for campus housing online, you will need your NMU Identification Number (the eight digit number that was sent to you in your admissions letter), the first three letters of your last name, and a credit card to pay the $125 advance payment.  You may also pay by electronic check using NMU's security online payment system.

Applying By Mail

To apply for campus housing by mail, you will need to download the residence hall application, complete the form, and return it to NMU with a check for the $125 advance payment.  Once you've completed your application, you will need to mail it, and your advance payment, to the NMU Student Service Center (2201 Hedgcock, Marquette, MI  49855).
