Room Assignments Available as of July 1
Room assignments for students assigned for Fall 2016 are available as of July 1. Log in to myHousing with your MaineStreet logon (firstname.lastname) and MaineStreet password. If you have been assigned a room, you will see a “My Room Assignment” button. Click on it to see your room and hall assignment/roommate name and contact information.

Due to the size of the incoming first year class, first year students who applied for housing or confirmed admission after May 1 may be assigned to a temporary triple room. We hope to have all students assigned to temporary triples in a double room as soon as possible.  If you are assigned to a temporary triple, you will see two roommate names when you log in to your room assignment. Once the semester begins, all students assigned to a temporary triple will receive a room credit once the triple is reassigned as a double.
