Here are some housing updates for you and your student.
Some Residence Halls Close for Winter Break
Blair-Shannon, Freddy, Wells, and Woods House will close on December 14 at 8 am and will reopen January 11 at 8 am for Winter Break. All mail during this time is stopped, and students will need to send packages elsewhere during this time. Students who need housing can contact the Residence Life, Housing and Dining Services Office 417-836-5536 if they need assistance finding break housing. We offer very limited spaces on campus for students at a minimal cost and we also work with a nearby hotel for a discounted rate. Have your student contact us so we can talk about options if they need housing during that time. All other residence halls and apartments (Hammons, Hutchens, Kentwood, Scholars, Monroe, and Sunvilla) will remain open.
Housing Applications for 2020-2021
Current on campus students can fill out the housing application. Go to My.MissouriState.Edu, Campus Life tab, then Housing to fill out the housing application to live on campus. The $100 Housing deposit also carries over from year to year for students who remain on campus. Future Fall 2020 students should fill out the housing application now as there is no penalty for cancelling before May 1, 2019. Make sure to complete the meningitis requirement and pay the housing deposit to have a completed housing application. Housing Contracts completed are made in priority date order and assignments are made at the end of each month starting in May.
Is your student interested in developing their leadership skills while assisting other students with their transition to the campus community? Could your student benefit from gaining meaningful experience that will be marketable to future employers?
