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. A copy of the Residence Life agreement may be found here.
  • 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 14 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. Click here for instructions on how to select roommates for the Summer 2018 or click here for Fall 2018 instructions.
