The Spring 2021 Housing Application launches September 1!

Due to the pandemic, we will be delaying the launch of the Fall 2021-Spring 2022 Housing Application to January 2021. Spaces for upperclassmen students may be limited in the event that the university continues on a reduced occupancy plan. Please stay tuned to email, social media, and for updates!

For your convenience, you can sign your license agreement and pay your prepayment online through the MT Housing Portal.
