Room Selection for New Students

It takes just 3 steps to figure out where you’re living at Bethel. If you have any questions along the way, contact us.

  1. Apply for housing.

    Apply online and pay your deposit through Blink (Student Services tab > Housing channel > Apply for Housing).

    This step puts your name in our housing system and lets us know you’re living on campus.

  2. Choose your roommate (optional).

    Check out a few specifics if you’re a freshmantransfer student or PSEO student.

    Choose your roommate by visiting your MyHousing page through Blink (Student Services tab > Housing channel > MyHousing and Meal Plans). 

    See the roommate selection instructions for what to do once you're logged in to MyHousing 

    All roommate requests must be mutual—both you and your roommate have to complete this step. Don’t have a roommate? That’s normal. Most new students don’t. You’ll be paired with another new student when you choose your room.

  3. Pick out your room during room draw.

    1. Research room options.

    Review floor plans before your draw time so you know where you’d like to live. Floor plans are available on all residence hall pages.

    2. Get your room draw time.

    There are two ways to find your room draw time:

    • We’ll send you an email with your time.
    • Or you can find your time on your MyHousing page through Blink (Student Services tab > Housing channel > MyHousing and Meal Plans).

    3. Choose your room.

    When your draw time arrives, log in to your MyHousing page available through Blink (Student Services tab > Housing channel > MyHousing and Meal Plans).

    See the room selection instructions for what to do once you’re logged into MyHousing.

    After you're done, your MyHousing Overview page will include your roommate's name and Bethel email. If you would like home information, you can look them up on the Bethel Directory found in Blink.  

    What are meal plan requirements for each hall? 

    A meal plan is required for all students with housing in Bodien, Edgren, Getsch, Nelson, Lissner, Arden Village, and Heritage.  Students are pre-assigned the 15-Meal Plan in June with the option to change to another plan. 

    A meal plan is optional for students with housing in North Waters and North Woods apartments.  These apartments are equipped with full kitchens.
