Step Four

Step 4   Read the Preferences Selection Tutorial‌

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

               or Watch the Video tutorial   Residence and Dining License and Housing Preferences                


                     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 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.
