Directions about the Housing Process
If you will be a new student at Messiah College here is a brief explanation about how the housing process works.
a. You cannot request a specific hall to live in on the form.
b. We use your preferences to match you with a roommate and we will try to get you into the room type you request, but we cannot guarantee that we'll grant every request..
c. Supplemental triple rooms are double rooms that have furniture for three people in them. They have three of everything except for bookshelves and closets. You can choose to be in a supplemental triple room or you may be placed into a supplemental triple room based on your deposit date. The last two years those who paid their deposit after April 1 were placed into a supplemental triple room. For more information about supplemental triples please check out the supplemental triple webpage.
Please contact the Office of Residence Life & Housing at 717-796-5239 for further assistance.
