Housing selection at Manhattan College is done via an online housing lottery. To qualify for the online housing lottery, you must complete the following two steps:

  • Pay your deposit

  • Submit a housing application

Room Reservation Security Deposits

You must pay a $400 Room Reservation deposit to signup for Fall 2022 – Spring 2023 Housing. The $400 Room Reservation is non-refundable.

Online Housing Application

You will need to fill out a housing application online through myHousing before you can participate in the housing selection process. The housing application is separate from the online lottery.

myHousing: Submit Housing Application


In order to reserve a space, you must be able to fill that space with other students who have all qualified by paying their $400 room reservation deposits, registering for classes, and filling out their online housing applications.

Can’t find a roommate? We can help. We host roommate mixer and housing information sessions in the spring where you can meet other students who are looking for a roommate. Additionally, If you live on-campus currently, talk to your RA about finding a roommate as they can give you good advice and ideas.

You will receive an email from Residence Life once you are qualified to select roommates and housing. Once you receive this email you will be able to return to myHousing to electronically match with your roommates. Only students who have fulfilled the three qualifying requirements will be searchable.

Lastly, all roommate matches must be mutual. In addition to searching for your desired roommate and sending them a request, you must log on to myHousing to accept a similar request from them.

myHousing: Submit Roommate Request


Homesteading means keeping the same space you currently have. The requirements are:

  1. You need to be able to fill the entire space
  2. At least half of the current occupants must return to that space
  3. Each student must have paid their $400 room reservation deposit
  4. Each student must have completed the 2022-2023 Housing Application
  5. Each must enroll full-time during the course registation period (begins April 1, 2022) by April 13, 20202.

In the case of a 5-person apartment in Overlook, at least three of you would have to be returning in order to meet the 50% requirement and reserve your same space.

*There will only be homesteading on Overlook Manor for the 2022-2023 academic year*

Manhattan College offers a limited amount of paid single rooms. When filling out your online housing application there will be a place to indicate your interest in a paid single room. We will then send you a separate single room application. Paid single rooms are NOT guaranteed. They are based on availability.

Pricing for paid singles will be available in May 2022.

12-Month Housing

We offer 12-month housing in Overlook Manor. It is a great option for upperclassmen with nearby summer jobs, internships, student teaching positions, etc. It allows you to live in your Overlook apartment for 12 months starting in June. There is a one-time additional fee for 12-month housing. This option is for upperclassmen only as Overlook is reserved for juniors and seniors.

12-month housing signup will be available in the spring. You must first participate in the online lottery and secure a space in Overlook Manor. William Atkinson (Assistant Director of Residence Life – Housing Operations) will be available to go over 12-month housing and summer housing options to help you decide what is best for you.

A modified 12-month housing option will also be available for residents who are unable to secure housing in Overlook.

Housing Lottery

The online housing lottery will take place over the month of March and April. You will receive correspondence from Residence Life beforehand to inform you when you are qualified to participate. Remember, to qualify you need to pay your room reservation deposit, and complete your online housing application.

Also, remember that you must be able to fill the entire space you want to reserve. All students filling the space must be qualified to participate in the lottery. Do yourself and your friends a favor and make sure everybody has paid their deposit, registered for courses, and filled out their online housing application.

The online lottery will be based on times rather than lottery numbers. Students who are qualified to participate will receive their lottery time a few days prior to when the lottery opens. The most important thing to remember is to pay your room reservation deposit and fill out your online housing application so that you can get a lottery time!
