A STEP by STEP Guide for Registration.

1)    To request your preferred room and board plan, please visit MyRoom. This should take you directly to the Summer VCM registration.  If you have stayed with us before, you are able to use your old log in information.  You can reset your username/password if you’ve forgotten it.  If you are new to the program, please set up your account so we have your address and contact information on file. 

2)    Upon entering the MyRoom portal, you will be able to select whether you are signing up for multiple weeks for MECA or the Six-Week program. 

3)    Once you submit your application through MyRoom, you will receive a confirmation email with a payment link.  See below for additional details about payment forms:

  • The payment link is for the $100.00 security deposit to reserve your room which is due one (1) week from the day you register for housing as well as to pay online in full your balance with a credit/debit card.
