Apply for campus housing today.

  • Students interested in applying can do so by accessing their Housing Portal. To apply for housing, you need: 

......(1) your "Campus Connection" username and password, and

......(2) you need to have been admitted to Mayville State. 

      (if you don't see the 'fall semester' or whichever term application you're interested in, it
      usually means you've not yet been admitted for that term.)

Throughout your college career at Mayville, you will use this site for the semesters you live on campus, and (even longer, maybe) the semesters you buy a meal plan.

Info about Applying for Housing --

Students requesting a housing assignment will be required to pay $130 today. You will pay a nonrefundable $30 application fee and you will pay a "First Housing Payment" of $100. You will pay that amount at the time of application. 

Students who decide to go to a different college, or don't live in the residence halls: you can get the $100 back by canceling your contract. The deadline for the refund is July 31, and you can re-enter the Housing Portal to register your cancellation. (You can also send an email to As a reminder, the request for refund will go through your University account, so if you owe money for something else, that gets paid before a refund occurs. You can also tell us to apply that money to your tuition for the next semester or for bookstore funds, or other charges. 

Students who do attend Mayville and live in the residence halls: that $100 is applied to your housing charges. You'll see that occur in Campus Connection. 


Students who are requesting housing beginning January 2021

Students who will attend Mayville State starting in January 2021 (Spring Semester) - complete the application (link at the bottom). Because we'll be placing you into spaces that might have had a fall student, it's difficult to either do the placement early or to use the self-assign options. We'll let you know just after January 1 your housing assignment. 

We open at 1:00 pm on Sunday, January 10. There is no good way for us to check you in early, so please plan to arrive no earlier than the 10th. 


Students who are requesting housing beginning August 2021

The application for Fall 2021 will be available shortly after Thanksgiving. You can complete the application, and preference for room sign up includes an element of when you complete your housing application. After you complete the application, new incoming students will receive specific instructions about room sign up. The room sign up process will be all online; a student or his/her roommate (or one person of a four-person suite-request) can sign up for the other people in the suite).  

In fact there are two priority concepts for new students: who applied and paid first (by date); and who has properly indicated a full suite, who has properly indicated a full room, and who hasn't (by complete request status). (I promise! this all works out). 

(We call it "application" as a starter, but really your Housing Portal is a site you will come back throughout your time at Mayville State. In the site, you can see who your roommate (will be), see your assignment, change your meal plan, see your charges, submit a work order for your room, and more!)
