Residence Life Application Information

Application Information

  • Before you can apply to live on-campus, you first need to apply and gain admission to SMC. After you receive your acceptance letter you can apply to live in the on-campus residence halls. Detailed application instructions may be found here. A non-refundable $75 application fee is due before you submit the application.
  • All students will be prompted to sign the Residence Life agreement before they fill out the application. The Residence Life agreement may be found in the student handbook.
  • You do not have to complete the application in one sitting. You may leave the application at any point and complete it later. Your work will be saved.
  • Applications are due May 31. The first round of roommate pairing will occur on June 1. You may apply after that date, but your chances of getting a room are smaller.
  • You have until June 1 to select a room or roommate. After that, rooms and roommates will be assigned automatically. The auto-assignment process will occur once per week.
  • Campus housing is assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis and is not guaranteed.
  • After you complete the application, you may use the same ResLife portal to select roommates.
