For summer housing, complete the Summer Application and License Agreement and return it with the required $175 prepayment fee to MTSU Housing and Residential Life, Middle Tennessee State University, Post Office Box 6, Murfreesboro, TN 37132.

While there is no final application date for new applications, housing assignment priorities are based on the date of application and prepayment of applicable fees. Due to the demand for on-campus housing and limited amount of space available, the University is unable to guarantee housing for all students. Early applications are strongly encouraged. A completed application, signed by the student, indicates acceptance of the terms and conditions outlined in the Housing License Agreement. Please be aware that the agreement is for the full academic year, including both fall and spring semesters and that assignment to a specific building and type of room cannot be guaranteed. Student agrees to accept accommodations assigned, including overflow housing for single students or to cancel and accept prepayment forfeiture as outlined in the license agreement.

Meningococcal Vaccination Required

Effective July 1, 2013, the Tennessee General Assembly required ALL NEW students, at any public institution of higher learning in the State of Tennessee, who live in "ON-CAMPUS" student housing, to provide proof of adequate immunization against Meningococcal disease after their 16th birthday and within the last 5 years, before moving into any on-campus housing. Some exemptions exist for students who provide the appropriate medical or religious exemption form to Student Health Services. This requirement does not currently apply to students already living in on-campus housing or who have previously lived in MTSU's student housing. This requirement does not replace the Hepatitis B/Meningitis Waiver Form required by Health Services of all MTSU students living on or off campus. New incoming students living in on-campus housing will not have the option of refusing this immunization without providing Student Health Services with appropriately executed medical or religious exemptions. To ensure compliance, students are eligible for housing assignment contingent on proof of adequate immunization against Meningococcal disease. This means your application will be accepted but cannot be assigned until vaccination against the Meningococcal disease is confirmed by MTSU Student Health Services. All forfeitures apply as outlined in the Housing License Agreement.
