MSU Home :: Housing

    The Office of Student Housing at Morehead State University is dedicated to creating a residential culture which encourages academic success, personal achievement, service, and accountability. We strive to provide support to all of our constituent groups while continuing to meet their evolving needs. In addition, we seek to provide quality, safe and secure facilities, that promote student growth and development, foster civic engagement and academic achievement, while creating a community that encourages and supports diversity, self-exploration, and individuality.

    Serving in excess of 3,000 residents, students are given an opportunity to live and learn in an environment that fosters higher grade point averages, faster graduation rates, and a more connected collegiate experience than their off-campus peers. Additionally, students that reside on campus are more likely to take advantage of campus resources, cultural events, student organizations, and connect with faculty and University personnel in a meaningful and engaging way. Please be advised: Per the Eagle Handbook, Morehead State University’s On-Campus Residency Policy requires all full-time students under the age of 21 who have earned fewer than 60 University recognized college credit hours to live on campus and subscribe to the applicable dining requirement. Students must be 21 by the first day of classes to fulfill residency requirement. (Students enrolled full-time on-line or at an MSU Regional Campus are exempt from this policy.) Students failing to meet this requirement will be assessed the lowest residence hall fee.

    The Housing Office at Morehead State University is a vibrant and thriving community that we welcome you to be a part of!


    Students wishing to explore changing their room assignment for Spring 2016 should visit Leslie Barger in the housing office between November 30 and December 3. If your new assignment is available you will be expected to move before the winter break begins. If your new assignment is not available you will need to move all belongings home and check out of your fall assignment when you leave for winter break. You will move into your new Spring 2016 assignment when residence halls reopen on Thursday, January 14, 2016.


    Please be aware that ALL HALLS other than West Mignon Hall, Fields Hall, and university on-campus apartments close for winter break. Student access to their residence hall space will terminate on Friday, December 11, 2015 at 7PM unless you are an a pre-approved graduation list from the University.

Please be aware that submitting a late stay request does not guarantee an approved late stay and reasons given for stay will be confirmed with appropriate university personnel. An approved late stay will extend access to no later than Saturday December 11, 2015 at 5PM.

    Students do not need to move out completely of their assignment if they are returning to the same location in Spring 2016. They are, however, encouraged to take important items like medication, perishable food, valuables, etc home with them as access to their space over the break will not be granted under any circumstance. Card access for students not in Fields, West Mignon, or university on-campus apartments will resume on Thursday January 14, 2016 at 10am.
