Additional Housing Information

MyHousing is a new program were students will have a fully online Housing selection experience. By navigating a 4-step process students will (1) read and electronically sign their housing contracts, (2) pay their Housing contract guarantee (as needed), (3) request specific rooms, roommates, buildings and living learning environments and (4) choose the desired meal plan to complete their fully customized experience. Students will have full control for selecting specific rooms and roommates or having MyHousing randomly assign based on student provided preferences.

Students will access MyHousing through their MyFSU account and the University Life tab. Ferris State students will be contacted via their MyFSU accounts to let them know when it is time to begin the MyHousing process. Students are encouraged to keep an eye on their Ferris State e-mail, MyFSU account and the Housing & Residence Life webpage www.ferris.edu/housing/myhousing.htm for further details. With this fully online experience students will no longer receive or utilize paper contracts. Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to contact the Office of Housing and Residence Life with questions 231-591-3745.
