It’s hard to believe that we are nearing the end of the semester. This academic year has flown by so quickly. Here are some update from Residence Life, Housing and Dining about residence halls closing for the semester, summer school housing and information for our students starting Missouri State in August 2018.
Halls Close – Our Halls close on May 19 at 8:00 am. Students will need to have all their belongings packed up and their rooms cleaned. Each student will formally check-out with their Resident Assistant; they will go over their Room Condition Report that they signed when they moved in back in August and turn in their keys. To assist in a smooth check out, we have vacuums and cleaning supplies at the front desk for students to use. Also remind your student to ensure their forwarding address is correct with the Registrar’s office, so they continue to get any mail over the summer. One tip you can share with your student, is to start planning! It always takes longer to pack up and make a move than you think it does. They might start saving boxes now and thinking about what will fit in a carload home (and what might not). We offer donation stations in all our residence hall lobbies, where students can donate anything to a local thrift store and shelter.
Summer School Housing – Residence Life offers Summer School Housing in Hammons House for students who will be enrolled in classes. The Housing Application is already open and students can find this under their my.missouristate.edu, in the housing channel. This is a convenient option for students who will be focused on their classes this summer.
Future Bears – Assignment notices & Room Changes (for Fall 2018 students) – Assignment notices go out by the last day of each month. Students will receive an email to their @live.missouristate.edu email account with details about their housing assignment. Once posted, students can also see this information listed on their application and roommate summary in their housing channel within the my.missouristate.edu portal. If your student would like to change their assignment, they can go online to see any open bed spaces within our system. At that time, they will be able to self-select into an open space of their choosing. Once the room change process is open students can check back to see any vacancies as we have cancellations throughout the summer. The only time the room change process turns off is for a short period of time each month, so we can make new assignments.
