Fall Housing Selection

Fall Housing Selection (FHS) is the opportunity for current MMC students to reserve a space in housing for Fall 2017. Sign up to secure your space for next year!

May 4, 2017 UPDATE:  We currently have a waitlist for RETURNING MMC students only.  If you are interested in being on the waitlist, please contact our office at 212.774.0740. 

Note: If you are a new, incoming student or a transfer student, please view your housing application process here. The below information is for current MMC students only.

Continuing students will live at Cooper Square.Cooper Square Residence Hall


Current MMC students can sign up for Fall 2017 housing in 3 easy steps:

1. Pay a non-refundable housing deposit of $500. 

Deposits can be paid by check, cash, or credit card at the Center for Student Services or online through accessing Student Accounts Suite via MMC Connect.  

* Please make sure you do not have a balance on your student account, otherwise your $500 deposit will be considered payment on your account, not your housing deposit. 

2. Complete the Continuing Student Housing Application.

After you submit your non-refundable $500 deposit and housing application, you will be entered into the Lottery* for a time slot to select your room and bed. See below for Lottery info.

3. Sign up on your scheduled day to select your room and choose your bed!

Individual Sign-Up: Arrive during your time slot on the assigned day, or have a proxy attend in your place (with a Proxy form). You can choose your room or let us match you with roommates. It is possible you may have a roommate you don’t know. 

Group Sign-Ups: If students want to go as a group they can pick the roommate with the earliest time slot. Everyone in the group MUST be present at the time of selection or designate a proxy to represent you. The proxy must have a Proxy Form for everyone in the suite not in attendance. 

For current students living at CSQ:

Tuesday, March 28: 3-9 pm at Cooper Square; 

For current students living at 55th Street:

Wednesday, March 29: 9 am - 5 pm at 55th Street Lobby

All other students:

Thursday, March 30: 9 am - 5 pm at Carson 807


  • March 22 at noon: Returning students who submit the application and deposit by this time will be entered into the Lottery and will receive their time slot for room selection by Friday, March 24.  

  • March 22 at noon- March 29: If your deposit and application are received during this time, you will be entered into a second Lottery for a time slot on March 30 to select your room and bed.

  • After March 30: If your application and deposit are received after March 30, the Office of Residence Life will assign you to your room and bed.  

Important Information 

  • There are limited spaces, so it’s first come, first served. 
  • Be sure you want to live in housing before you sign up. Once you complete the deposit and application, you’ll be liable for paying for housing for the entire academic year. 
  • Furniture at Cooper Square is in its permanent position and cannot be adjusted, which means lofted beds must remain lofted. While we will try to meet your preferences, placement will be made in the spaces available. Not getting your preference of bed types is not a valid reason for release from the housing contract.  
  • You are strongly urged to obtain renters insurance, or verify coverage with your family’s homeowners policy for theft, damage, loss, etc. of your personal belongings.  


Housing Contract Information

To complete the housing application process, you will need to read and review the Housing Contract online. Please read the Contract in its entirety prior to signing your housing application.

By signing the Contract you are agreeing to:

  • Reside in the residence halls for the entire academic year, and be responsible for all housing fees for the duration of the academic year, whether or not you drop to part-time.

  • Abide by all policies in The Resident’s Guide to Community Living.

Frequently Asked Questions


I missed the March 30 Fall Housing Selection date! Can I still participate in Fall Housing Selection?

Yes! While our official Fall Housing Selection process and room lottery has concluded, any current student interested in housing for the 2017-18 academic year may sign up for housing. Housing placements will be made by Residence Life staff in the summer.

What do I need to do to sign up for housing?

As soon as you can, pay the $500 non-refundable housing deposit and complete the Continuing Student housing application online. Housing placements are made on a first come, first served basis.

I know Cooper Square is for continuing students, but what if I want to live at 55th next year?

Because 55th is primarily for first-year students, there are a limited number of continuing student spaces located in rooms with Resident Advisors (RAs). When applying for housing, you can request to be placed on the waitlist for 55th Street. If a space becomes available at 55th Street, you will be notified, and it is unlikely you will be placed with any requested roommates. If selected, you must agree to the expectations of returning residents living at 55th Street, such as serving as a tour room.

What if I want to room with someone specific next year?

You and your intended roommates can request one another on your housing application. We cannot guarantee roommate matches, but will do our best to honor your request. Roommate requests must be mutual in order to be considered.

Is gender neutral housing available at Cooper Square?

Yes. Note your interest on your application.

I already submitted my application, but I found someone I want to live with. How can I request them?

Email your request to using your MMM email account. Include your full name and ID number and your requested roommate(s) name(s). Your requested roommate must also request you on the housing application or through the same process in order to be considered. We can accept requests until July 15. 

Can I see Cooper Square in person before signing up?

Yes! Tours of Cooper Square are at 8:30 pm on March 16, 19, 20, 21, and 26. If you can’t make one of these tour nights, virtual tours of Cooper Square and floor plans of each room are available.

What happens if I cannot pay the deposit now? 

When you are ready to pay the deposit, please call the Office of Residence Life to check housing availability.  

What if I have a balance on my account when I pay my housing deposit ? 

Please make sure you do not have a balance on your student account, otherwise your $500 deposit will be considered a payment on your account, not your housing deposit.

What happens if I sign up for a room and later decide to live off campus?

If you are unsure about housing, DO NOT sign up for a space in housing right now. By submitting your $500 non-refundable deposit and application during FHS,  you are contractually bound to the housing contract and are responsible for the housing charges for the entire academic year.
