If you have secured a space in a DTAV/Patch suite or in Honors Housing, you do NOT need to do anything for Room Signup Week.

Hancock Hall will not be available as a choice for room selection.

For students signing up for Hart or Oak Halls for next year, please note that Wells Dining may continue to be closed. This will depend on the number of students we have on campus and is not something we can determine prior to Room Signup. We apologize for any inconvenience, and hope to have Wells Dining open in the fall.

Room sign up instructions: March 1–5

Log in to myHousing (link above) to see the earliest date and time you may log in to select a room for next year. IMPORTANT: If you have a roommate in mind, the person with the earlier timeframe should pull in the person with the later time frame to get the most choices of rooms.

However, the person with the later timeframe must log in as soon after Room Selection begins BEFORE the person with the earlier timeframe to accept the room and board (meal plan) license, select a meal plan, and create a PIN code to give to the person pulling them into a room. This PIN code tells the system that you have completed the license and selected a meal plan enabling your roommate to pull you in.

Starting March 1:

Log in to myHousing using your MaineStreet ID and password.

Click on “Room Selection.”

There will be two choices here:

  • Choice one: Actually selecting a room. This is the choice the person chooses who is selecting a space on their own or pulling in a roommate.
  • Choice two: The process for the person being pulled into a room by their roommate. (This is the person with the later timeframe.)

The person being pulled in gives the PIN code they created to their roommate. When that person’s timeframe begins, they may log in, accept the room and board license, select a meal plan, select a room, and pull their roommate in using that PIN code.

When selecting a room: First choose the building you want, the floor you want, and then you’ll see a floor plan with rooms and beds in them. A red bed means the bed is taken. Green means the bed is available.

  • Two green beds means it’s a double room and both bed spaces are available.
  • One green bed and one red bed means it’s a double room, but someone has already selected one of the spaces in the room. This could be someone without a specific roommate and just going for a random roommate.
  • One bed in a room means it’s a single.
  • When you click on the bed, it locks the room from anyone else selecting it while you finish the process. The process is not complete until the FINISH button is clicked at the end of the process.

Any questions, concerns, or problems with the system, please email um.housing@maine.edu.

Thank you for living with us again next year. Let’s hope we get back to a more “normal” academic year in the fall. Stay safe.

NOTE: If you secure a space through Room Signup, the DTAV/Patch process, or Honors Housing and cancel your housing, cancellation fees apply. A $250 cancellation fee is assessed until June 1. A $500 cancellation fee applies June 2 through the start of the semester. An email to um.housing@maine.edu is required to officially cancel. If you are unsure about living on campus next year, you may always complete a housing application later, and our department will assign you to an available space.

New for 2021–22

Housing Services and Residence Life have worked together on an exciting new themed community for students.

Mosaic Community, third floor Kennebec

The Mosaic community is an opportunity for first-year and upper-class students who identify as Black, Indigenous, students of color, or allied peoples (BIPOC). This community will focus on supporting BIPOC students during their enrollment at UMaine through partnerships with the Office for Diversity and Inclusion and other campus resources to tackle structural and interpersonal racism at the University. The community will facilitate mentoring opportunities, racial and ethnic identity development, and leadership skills for students through active anti-racism community initiatives. Staff selected for this residential community are committed to equity, social justice, and inclusion work in order to support students’ identities and programmatic needs.
