Step Four

Step 4   Read the Freshman Preferences Tutorial‌

                     ‌The Freshmen Preferences Tutorial explains how you will select your housing preferences
                     in the Residential Management System (RMS).       



If you are planning to request a specific roommate(s), ALL OF YOU must list the other(s) on your preferences by entering the roommate(s)'s 8 character MSU ID (NOT their SSN!).

It is important that all students planning on requesting specific roommates follow the above ID activation steps and know the other(s)'s 8 character MSU ID prior to completing their housing applications.

Please note that for Fall housing we will try our best to accommodate roommate requests. However, they are not guaranteed. A roommate request must be mutual for the request to be considered.
