If I cancel my contract, will my deposit get refunded?
No.  The housing deposit is non-refundable.

Can I sign a one semester housing contract?
Housing contracts are signed for a full academic year (Fall and Winter semesters). Mid-year (Winter semester) contracts will be available if space permits.

If the resident will no longer be an enrolled student, the resident must apply for a contract release with the Residence Life office. Releases are granted for only the following reasons:  Withdrawal from MU, transfer to another school, graduation/program completion.

The contract will not be terminated for an enrolled resident to move off campus or commute from home during the period of the contract. If a resident chooses to move out of the residence hall without obtaining a contract release from the Residence Life office, the resident continues to be financially responsible for all room and board charges for the remainder of the academic year.

Roommate Questions

How will you match me with a roommate?
You will be asked a series of questions on your Housing Application. Examples include your preferences for noise, visitors, sleeping habits, and study habits. The information you provided is then used to match you with a roommate. 

Can I choose my roommate?
Yes. In the application you receive from the Office of Residence Life, it will contain information on how to request a roommate. You will need to request the student by listing their first and last name. In order for roommates to be matched together, both parties must request one another.

What happens if I do not get along with my roommate?
First, talk with your roommate about what is bothering you. Most of the time, problems can be worked out simply by communicating directly with them. If that doesn't work, speak with your RA or Professional staff. They are there to help you  and your roommate resolve the issue. It is important to be direct and honest with your roommate.
