Room Selection for the Fall 2024 – Spring 2025 academic year will be starting in the new few weeks. In preparation for this, students living on-campus will need to do the following to be able to participate.
Pre-Room Selection Process
As returning students, you will be able to select your own room for next year. To be able to participate, you must pay the $200.00 housing deposit and complete the Returning Student Housing Application: “RETURNING STUDENTS_HousingApplication_2024-2025.”
To complete the housing application, you will log into your MyHousing Account. In your MyHousing account, you will click the Applications tab and complete the “RETURNING STUDENTS_HousingApplication_2024-2025.” You will need to complete the application to be eligible to participate in the room selection process.
You will pay the housing deposit in the housing application. Once you have completed the housing application, you will receive an email confirming the application was completed.
You can also go ahead and select roommates by logging into your MyHousing Account. Once logged in, select the Roommate Selection tab and Select Roommates. For the term, choose Fall 2024 and you can then search for a roommate by first and last name. When you find your roommate, you will select them by clicking the Request Roommate option under the name.
Please make sure you only select the number of roommates you want for the room type your looking for:
- For a single suite, you can only select (1) roommate as single suites are for two (2) students.
- For a double suite, you can only select (3) roommates as double suites are for four (4) students.

OFF-CAMPUS WAIVER FAQS
Below are frequently asked questions and their answers related to the off-campus waiver process to help you plan accordingly for the 2024-25 academic year.
Should I apply for on-campus housing for 2024-25 academic year?
If you are returning to Millersville University for the 2024-25 academic year and not eligible for a 60+ credit waiver, you should apply to secure campus housing.
I will not have 60 earned credits until I finish the spring 2024 semester. Can I still apply for a waiver?
Yes. University Housing & Conference Services (UHSC) takes into consideration the anticipated number of credits that you will earn for the spring 2024 semester. Keep in mind that you can become ineligible if you decide to withdraw from or fail courses that will put you under the 60-credit mark by the end of the spring 2023 semester.
What if my friends I want to live with have 60+ credits and are approved, but I only have 30-59 earned credits?
Decisions regarding the availability for off-campus waivers for students with between 30 -59 credits will be determined in the summer of 2024. Additionally, those with 30-59 earned credits who are granted a waiver may only reside in Student Lodging, Inc. (SLI) communities and not elsewhere off-campus.
Some of my intended roommates and I have received a 60+ credit waiver, but one (or more) have only have 30 – 59 earned credits. What should we do?
Students with only 30 – 59 earned credits are not guaranteed a waiver. You should proceed accordingly assuming that your friend may not be granted a waiver. It is recommended that you make off-campus roommate arrangements with students who do have a 60+ earned credit waiver.
If I do not have the required credit hours to move off campus, can I take summer classes to get the needed credits?
You may do so if this will place you at a level of 60 or more earned credits prior to the start of the fall semester.
What if I already signed a lease somewhere other than Student Lodging, Inc. (SLI)?
You may only sign a lease somewhere other than Student Lodging, Inc. (SLI) if you have acquired a 60+ earned credit waiver.
I received a waiver last year but never used it, can I use it this year?
No. You must apply for a waiver each year.
Can I transfer my waiver to someone else?
No. Waivers are not transferrable to other students.
If 30 – 59 credit waivers for SLI are granted, how are they chosen?
Waivers will be granted in sequential order by the date and time of the of “Fall 2024 off-campus request application” until the number of waivers available are exhausted. Waivers granted for those 30 – 59 earned credits will not be based upon any intended apartment roommate arrangements that you may have.
If I do not know if I will be granted a 30 – 59 credit waiver, do I have to live on campus for the summer?
Students are not required to live on campus during the summer months but may do so.
Is there an appeal process for those students with 30 – 59 credits who were denied a waiver?
No. All decisions are final.
