SVSU Housing Portal
What are the policies regarding housing payments?
Tuition, fees, housing, and meal costs are applied to a student’s account. Any unpaid balance could result in loss of services including classes and/or housing. All payments must be made by the published due dates. We encourage students to check mySVSU (Self Service) for account status information on a regular basis. All communications are made via the SVSU email account. Printed bills are not generated.
How to make a roommate request?
All residents will be able to find their mutual roommate(s) in the housing portal through the Roommate Selection process.
Students in special programs may not have preferences honored due to community limitations by the advisor. It is not possible to honor all requests, although every attempt will be made to do so. The final determination of room assignments rests with the university.
SVSU does not discriminate based on race, religion, color, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, age, physical impairment, disability or veteran status in the provision of education, employment, and other services.
Policies regarding meal plans and dining options at SVSU for on-campus residents
Incoming freshmen (First Time in College – FTIC) and freshman transfer residents are required to be on a meal plan regardless of their room placement. Meal plans consist of a combination of weekly swipes and declining balance dollars (DB). Weekly swipes are used in the all-you-care-to-eat facility called Marketplace at Doan and each swipe counts as one meal. Declining balance (DBs) are treated like flex accounts/debit cards and used in retail locations such as Panda Express, Subway, C-Store, Provisions on Demand (P.O.D.), etc. A second installment of DBs is loaded for the start of the winter semester. Declining balance dollars roll over from the fall to winter semester, however, unexpected declining balance dollars are forfeited at the end of the winter semester.
Upperclass and new transfer residents do not have a mandatory meal plan but may elect to purchase one for convenience. Block plans are available and include meals per semester that roll over from fall to winter. Students also have the option of creating their own meal plan using a combination of block meals and DBs or buying a traditional plan for a full semester experience.
Combination plans include a weekly meal swipe component and DBs. Meals per week must be used in the period designated and meal swipes re-set on Sunday, each week. As noted, all meal plan balances are forfeited at the end of the winter semester.
Meal changes are allowed through the first five days of each semester. Upgrades or reloading may occur at any time.
