Winter Break Housing

The following residence halls will be closed from 8:00 a.m. Saturday, December 15th until 8:00 a.m. Saturday, January 12th:  Blair-Shannon House, Freudenberger House, Kentwood Hall, Wells House, and Woods House.  If you need accommodations during this time, Winter Break housing will be available at the University Plaza Hotel at the special rate of $45/night plus tax.  The rate includes breakfast daily and is offered to Missouri State residence hall students only.  Please contact the University Plaza at 417-864-7333 to reserve your space.  Spaces are limited and will be available first-come, first-served.

In order to take advantage of the special rate, be sure to say that you are a Missouri State student in need of Winter Break housing.  All charges must be paid directly to the University Plaza and cannot be billed to your student account.

If you would like to share a room with another student and split the rate, you need to make arrangements ahead of time.  Roommates must be determined before check-in at the University Plaza.  If you are having trouble finding someone to share a room with, you may contact Abby Brown in Hammons House 104 at 417-836-4384.  We will try to work with you to find a potential Winter Break roommate, but there are no guarantees.


No Mail Service During Winter Break

Please be aware that mail service to all closed residence halls will be suspended and that mail service will not be available until the residence halls reopen in January.  Your mail will not be forwarded during the Winter Break.  There will be no access to mail during this time, as the reception desks are not staffed.  If you are expecting an important piece of mail, please make sure it is mailed to you before your residence hall closes—no later than December 14, 2012—or make other arrangements for delivery.


Computer Registration

During the Winter Break, Residence Life, Housing and Dining Services will reset all computer registrations.  Upon returning to the residence halls, all students will need to re-register personal computers.



Your BoomerMeals balance will start over for Spring.  Any BoomerMeals left over from the Fall semester will carry forward to Spring.

If you are not returning to the residence halls for Spring, you will lose any unused BoomerMeals from Fall but will not be charged for Spring BoomerMeals.


Housing Contract Cancellation Forms:

Educational Cancellation Form – For students participating in Internships, Student Teaching, or Study Away programs during the spring semester.  Please submit your form to Hammons House 104 along with appropriate verification documentation from the Study Away Office, your Internship Company, or your Academic Advisor.  All approved Educational Cancellations will receive a refund of the $100 housing deposit minus any damages.

Not Returning Form – For students who are withdrawing from the university, graduating, transferring schools, or not returning as a Missouri State student.  Return this form to the front desk of your Residence Hall.  Students who are withdrawing from MSU or transferring schools will lose the $100 deposit.  Students who are graduating will be refunded the $100 deposit minus any damages.

Breakage Information – For students who wish to request a breakage of their on-campus housing contract but remain a Missouri State student, please contact Abby Brown in Hammons House 104.  Very few breakages are granted and even those approved will be subject to breakage fees and loss of deposit.


Updating Address and Deposit Refunds

If you are not returning to Missouri State after the Fall semester and are eligible for a refund of your deposit, be sure you have updated your permanent address and/or Direct Deposit information in My Missouri State.  If you are signed up for Direct Deposit, your housing deposit (minus any damages) will be refunded to your bank account.  If you are not signed up for Direct Deposit, the housing deposit (minus any damages) will be mailed to your permanent address.  Checks that are mailed to incorrect addresses will be returned to Accounts Receivable and held there for the student to retrieve.



Are you “IN”?  Reapplication for on-campus housing will be starting in January.  We hope you and your friends have already been thinking about where you would like to live for Fall 2013!  Remember that all students who have not successfully completed 30 credit hours are required to live on campus.  Be sure to keep an eye out for more information on the website so you don’t miss your opportunity to select your favorite Residence Hall and secure your roommates for next year!

The interface is colorful, has much more flair, and some cool attributes like ‘Mixview’ that let you speedily see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on 1 of those will center on that item, and one more set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by comparable artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also excellent enjoyable, letting you discover other people with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist produced based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will probably be relieved to know you’ll be able to stop the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so pick.
