Welcome to the Housing Portal


We are very excited you are joining us to live on campus next year. This StarRez Portal is your personal ticket to applying for housing, securing a meal plan and keeping up with communication from our department. You are able to log into your personal housing portal at any time and check messages in the upper right hand corner as well as update emergency and missing personal information. To log into your personal portal you will use the third party Id you received from the college provided in an email by the Housing Office, as well as a randomly generated pin that is also provided to you as your password. If you are trying to apply for housing and you have not received this information please feel free to contact the Housing Office via email at housing@msubillings.edu and provide your first and last name. If you have lost the original email and need to know your pin number you may call the Housing Office from 8am-5pm, Monday-Friday at 406-657-2333 or send us an email with your request to above noted email.
