Spring Sign-Up Reminders

You've Reserved Your Room or Apartment!
Now What?


New Students (You've Never Lived On-Campus)

If you're new to Northern Michigan University and you've applied for housing, your assignment letter will be mailed to you during the later part of July or the early part of August.

Returning Students (You Lived On-Campus in 2014-2015)

Residents who lived on-campus during the 2014-2015 academic year and who have reserved a room or apartment for the 2015-2016 school year need to keep in mind a few important points!

Advance Payment Due June 1

In order to finalize the reservation for your room or apartment, you will have to pay a $125 advance payment to hold the room or apartment for the fall.  To pay the $125 through the NMU eBill system (the best way):

  1. Log into the eBill system and view your account.
  2. Click on the Deposit tab at the top of the screen.
  3. Chose the 2015 fall semester.
  4. Choose either "Residence Hall" or "Apartments".

You must make this $125 advance payment by June 1, or you risk losing the room or apartment that you reserved during Spring Sign-Up.

If You Still Need to Reserve A Room or Apartment

If you lived on-campus during the 2014-2015 academic year and you still need to reserve a room or apartment, it's not too late.  To make your reservation, please stop by the Housing and Residence Life Office (3502 Hedgcock) between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday and one of our staff can assist you.

Change Your Mind?

If you've signed up for a room or an apartment for next year, and if your plans have changed, you need to let us know.  You may do so by coming to the Housing and Residence Life Office (3502 Hedgcock) or you may email housing@nmu.edu.

If you have already paid the $125 advance payment, you will receive a refund of $75 if you cancel before August 1, 2014.  No refund will be issued if you cancel your reservation after August 1, 2014.


Canceling One of Two Reservations

Some individual sign up for their residence hall room while they wait to hear if they have been offered an on-campus apartment.  If you've done this, and you've been offered an apartment (and you have accepted the apartment), you need to let the Housing and Residence Life Office know that you'll no longer need the residence hall room.  Please let us know by stopping in the office or by emailing housing@nmu.edu.

Moving In

The first day of the 2015 Fall Semester residence hall or single student apartment contract is Thursday, August 20, 2015.  That is the first day that you'll be permitted to move into your room or apartment.  Housing and Residence Life staff are making repairs, finishing renovations, and generally preparing the residence halls and apartments for the school year right up until that date.  More information on move-in will be provided in the welcome letter you will receive late in July or early in August.


Please contact the Housing and Residence Life Office at (906) 227-2620 or send an email to housing@nmu.edu if you have any questions.
