Returning Student Room Selection

It’s time to renew your Residence Hall Contract for 2019-2020! If you plan on returning to MWSU in the fall and wish to live in the halls you may renew your housing contract starting March 18, 2019 by participating in the online session.

Contract Renewal Sessions somewhat “mimic” class level pre-registration for fall classes. Class level is determined by credit hours earned. As in years past, there are several rooms that are off-line and will not be available for re-assignment. Beshears and Juda Hall residents are required to have a minimum of 30 credit hours for super single assignment. Preference for Griffon Hall is given to students at the sophomore, junior, and senior level. In the event Griffon Hall does not fill with sophomores, juniors and seniors, we will then open the hall up for freshmen assignment. As always, we encourage you to remain a member of our residential community by participating in the online sessions for contract renewal!

  • All contract Renewal sessions will be on-line and can be found in your Goldlink account under Student Life Tab.
  • Class level is determined by total earned credit hours at the end of Spring 2019.
  • Only one contract per student.

Sign-Up Steps

2019 Spring Break Sign-Up

Housing and Residential Life will observe MWSU’s Spring Break March 9-17th, 2019. During this time staff and desk hours will be reduced in all residence halls. For students needing to stay on campus during Spring Break, we ask that you fill out the Spring Break Sign-Up. There is no cost to remain on campus during spring break this year! We do ask you sign-up so we are able to appropriately staff the buildings.
