Housing Next Steps


We look forward to welcoming you to the MCPHS Residential Community this Spring! Move-In Day is Wednesday, August 28. Students will receive more information about Move-In Day in July!

Housing Profile and Contract

After you have paid your $300 housing deposit*, your next step is to complete your Housing Profile and Contract. To help us assign you to housing, we have prepared a form for you to complete on our Residence Life Portal by May 15, 2024. This form has two very important components- the Housing Contract and the Profile.

Housing Contract: The Housing Contract outlines the rules and regulations for living on campus. It is for the full academic year—both the Fall and Spring semesters—with the option to include Summer 2024 if you are enrolled in courses. It is important to read through this contract before signing it.

Housing Profile: On to the fun part! The profile is where we ask you to describe your living preferences so we can match you with other students who are similar to you. Within this section, you’ll be able to let us know how you like to keep your living space, if you’re a morning or evening person, what your hobbies are, etc. Be honest in your answers! You will also be asked to rank your preference of building type.

Please complete the Housing Profile and Contract by May 15, 2024. Housing assignments will be sent to you in mid-July.

*If you haven't done so already, please pay your $300 housing deposit in addition to your enrollment deposit.

Choosing a Roommate: Have you already met someone you’d like to live with? Once you and your roommate(s) have filled out the Housing Contract and Profile, you will be able to request each other as roommates. Once you submit a request, your roommate will be notified and asked to accept it. All roommate requests must be mutual [accepted by all roommates] to be placed together. Even if you've found a friend to live with, make sure to discuss your living habits!

You can make changes to your preferences within the Portal by completing the questionnaire and roommate requests until May 26, 2024. After that, we will begin our placement process.

Office of Access and Accommodations

The Office of Student Access and Accommodations (OSAA) is a part of the Division of Student Affairs. It provides accommodations to students across all MCPHS campuses (Manchester, Boston, and Worcester) and online. Students who are eligible for accommodations must present documentation to demonstrate evidence of a current condition that interferes with one or more major life functions as defined by the ADAA 2008 and/or Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. We ask that students seeking an accommodation for housing work with OSAA before May 15, 2024.
