Take a moment to see what’s happening this month in Residence Life, Housing and Dining.
If your student will be taking classes during the summer, we offer Summer School and Intersession housing. The application will open in early April. Students can sign up to live on campus during the summer term by going to My.MissouriState.edu and selecting the summer housing application to get signed up. Your student’s $100 housing deposit carries over for summer if they lived with us this Spring.
Make sure your student completes their housing application. They need to pay the housing deposit, have a parent’s co-signature on file (if your student is under 18), and have met the meningitis requirement to complete the contract. Your student can check if they have completed these tasks by going to My.MissouriState.edu > Campus Life tab > Housing section > Application Summary. Meningitis vaccination records can be faxed to 417-836-4133 or emailed to MagersMedicalRecords@missouristate.edu.
We will be sending out our first round of housing assignments at the end of May. Be sure your student is checking their Missouri State email account, as that is where we will send their assignment information. We open the room change process the first of each month, if your student would like to change their assignment. At that time, students can log in to see all the open spaces and choose another housing assignment if they wish. This will give our students the comfort of knowing they have a space assigned to them based on their housing priority date and the flexibility to change their mind.
Student Employment in Residence Life
Residence Life employs over 200 students a year. We will be posting student employment opportunities for fall Desk Workers at the end of March. Students can find the job posting, which will be open for a minimum of two weeks, at jobs.MissouriState.edu. It doesn’t get more convenient than walking downstairs to your building’s front desk to go to work! Consider applying!
