You can be a resident on a great campus! Living on campus is the ideal place to study, relax, and make friendships that last a lifetime. If you have an interest in Housing, please complete the application. You are required to submit a $100 Housing deposit. The Housing deposit is automatically credited toward the cost of room and board. If you decide not to live in Housing, this fee is nonrefundable. Your application is not valid until your housing deposit is received. Upon receipt of your application and housing deposit, we will contact you through your UM-Flint email address regarding your next steps in the process.

There are three different services available in SIS:

Housing Application = allows you to apply for housing
Housing Deposit = allows you to pay your deposit on-line.  A housing deposit waiver form is available for students who meet the waiver criteria.  To access the form, click Housing Deposit Waiver Form.
Housing Contract = allows you to sign your contract


Admitted students may complete the housing application, pay a housing deposit to secure your space, and sign your housing contract on-line. The first thing you need to do is sign into the Student Information System ( SIS ). Once you have you signed in, click on the tab labeled Student Services at the top of the page.  If it is the first time that you are signing into SIS, you will need to answer the Student Authorizations questions and hit the submit button.  You will then click on Housing & Residential Life on the left hand side. If you have not been admitted, click on this link for Admissions .


The housing deposit is a nonrefundable payment of $100.00 that is credited to your student account.  This deposit secures your space in Housing.
