New Student Housing Registration

We are so excited to have you living on campus!  Evidence has proven time and again that students who live on campus perform better academically and are more connected socially.

This information is only for new freshman students, exchange students, and new transfer students.

The steps to sign up for on-campus housing are below.

1. Be accepted to Truman
Congratulations on that accomplishment!

2. Sign into TruView
All of our housing sign-ups are conducted online through Truman State University’s online student portal — TruView.  After being admitted to Truman, you will receive instructions by mail on how to set up your TruView account — the information will include your username and Truman ID number.

3. Accepted Student Tab
Housing information is provided in the Accepted Student Tab in the top menu on the TruView portal.

4 . Housing Information
The Housing Information box in the upper-left section contains information about various housing options, roommate selections, and room placement processes.

5. Complete the Housing Application.
Click on the Housing Application link to create your housing application and provide your housing preferences.

6. Submit your Housing Application Fee/Deposit.
Your housing application fee/deposit is $150 and must be paid to receive a housing placement. You will need a major credit card or electronic check to submit your housing application fee/deposit online.  Assuming you treat your room well, you will get the other $125 back later. (Additionally, if you cancel your admission to Truman in writing before May 1, you will be refunded $125 of the fee/deposit.)

The earlier you complete all of these steps the more likely you are to get the housing of your choice.  Many students complete their housing materials as early as November.
