Our housing application can be completed with our easy-to-use housing portal. Log
into your myFairmontState account using your Unified Computer Account (UCA) and password. Once you have logged
in, click "Housing" under the "Student Links" section of your portal. Click “Housing
Application” at the top of the page, then select the term for which you want to apply,
and complete the housing application.
Housing Terms and Conditions and Resident Liability Disclosure
Both of our lease agreements (Academic and Extended Terms & Conditions) and the renters
insurance information are available online in their entirety, and can be electronically
signed by any student over the age of 18. We strongly recommend that you read these
documents carefully while doing your application and you are welcome to print out
copies for your personal records.
Be aware that students under the age of 18 must have their legal guardian accept the
terms and conditions via the proxy agreement. The website utilizes a email proxy
in which the legal guardian electronically signs his/her student. If you have issues
or questions about the proxy, please feel free to contact our office for help.
Housing Application Fee
There is a $50.00 housing application fee. Please note that if you are reapplying for housing and you are currently living on
campus, your $50 non-refundable application fee must be paid each year that you apply
for housing. Please be aware that an additional $3.00 service fee applies. Students
are required to live on campus for 4 consecutive semesters (2 years).
Housing Preferences and Building Selection
We recommend that students choose their residence hall carefully. We offer both detailed
online information and on-campus touring services to help this. Once you have made
a decision, you can select building preferences under Housing Preferences.
When applying for housing you will select at least 3 preferences from highest to lowest.
Some buildings fill up very quickly, and having preferences can help guarantee a more
preferable room is available to you. Realize that you may be placed into a vacancy
that is not your highest preference, but we will always try to prioritize first preferences.
The sooner you complete your application, the more likely you are to receive one of
your highest preferences.
Meal Plan Selection
Except for our University Terrace apartment residents, all on-campus students must
select a meal plan. Our meal plans vary in size and price to better suit the needs
of our students. For a more complete explanation of the meal plan options and services,
we recommend reviewing the Housing and Meal Plan Rates.
Roommate Groups (optional)
Roommates may be requested through roommate search.
Search by Details
- Roommate screen name is the name of the person you want to live with.
Search by Profile
- You have the option to answer the profile questions again and choose a roommate based
on similar answers.
Search by Matching
- You are also able to select a roommate(s) based on your percentage of corresponding answer
You are able to request multiple individuals but must request them individually. Once
you've requested your roommates they must accept your request in order to room together.
After a roommate has been selected, you can check back to this page to see if you
have been successfully paired with your roommate. Once we have completed our placement
process, the name and contact information of your roommate will appear. If the information
is different from the roommate you requested, this is most likely because they chose
to be paired with another individual.
If you do not select a roommate, you will be placed with an available individual who
most highly matches your personality and housing preferences. We strongly recommend
that you choose your roommate or roommate preferences carefully to be matched with
someone who will make your stay in residence life an enjoyable one.
