Step 1 – Submit Application and Deposit

Every student meeting our housing requirements must complete a housing application and submit a damage deposit with the application. If you have been admitted to the institution simply click on myCampus and access the housing application located on the left hand side of the page.  (No deposit is required for the summer semester.) The contract portion of the application must be signed and dated by the student and a parent or guardian if the student is under 18 years of age. You can agree to the contract in the online application by clicking on "I Agree" if you are over the age of 18. The contract is for one academic year, which includes both the fall and spring semesters. The damage deposit is $200 for the year. Students who are returning to campus do not have to pay a second damage deposit.

Step 2 – Receive Room Assignment

Building, room, and roommate assignments are made based on the date your application and damage deposit are submitted to the Residence Life Office. Assignments are based upon student preferences, gender and roommate requests. It is imperative that you have made a mutual request with your preferred roommate on your application. (This portion of the application is only available after completion of lease and damage deposit.) Also, to ensure that you and your preferred roommate are placed together, it is recommended that you both submit your completed applications at the same time.

Once your completed Residence Life lease agreement and damage deposit are received, you will receive confirmation that we have received all required information.

To check to see if your room assignment has been made:

  • log into myFairmontState
  • click on the housing icon
  • check the application status page.

Information regarding the residence halls is available on this website.

If you have not applied to the institution you will need to wait until you are admitted to complete your housing application. You can apply online today!
