There are no on campus housing facilities for our medical students. Most students find convenient and affordable housing in the local community. The Office of Student Affairs provides a service for accepted students to UMMS to assist in finding roommates. There is no obligation to participate. Information regarding housing accommodations and roommates is also posted on the housing board outside of the student lounge.
In late April the Office of Student Affairs will send incoming medical students a link to the roommate/housing questionnaire form. All completed 'Roommate Questionnaire Forms' will be available to UMMS students (both incoming and enrolled) who are looking for roommates. For incoming medical student copies of all received 'Roommate Questionnaires' will be available at the Summer Orientation in early June or in the Office of Student Affairs. Although we provide some resources and information on housing, students are expected to arrange their own housing.
