How to Register for Housing

New to MVCC Students:

  • Apply to MVCC
  • Soon after being accepted, a Housing Information Packet will be sent to you by the Residence Life Office.
  • Complete the Housing Information & Preference Form and return it, along with the required $100 deposit to the Residence Life Office in the postage paid envelope.  Deposits can be paid on-line at
  • A confirmation e-mail will be sent to your MVCC Student E-Mail.  

Soon after you submit your deposit, we will schedule you to participate in a STAR (Student Testing, Advisement and Registration) program to be held in the mid summer.  During this program, you will be able to spend the night in the Residence Halls, take your Placement Test, if required, meet with an adviser and schedule your classes - ALL IN ONE TRIP! There are also great programs for your parents, guardians or other supporters.  Be sure to watch your mail for your invitation to the great program.
