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


    Moving in to your residence hall for a first-year student is one of the most exciting times of your college career. Times for first year student move in and returning student move in are:

    Friday August 12, 2016: All buildings for returning students not approved for early check in (9:00am)

    For all your #MSUMoveIn2016 info needs, please visit our move in hub here. You'll find a downloadable move in packet that will make your check in a breeze, a video of what to expect, and other great information points to ensure you are ready to rock for #MSUMoveIn2016!


    Returning students wishing to arrive early for Fall 2016 can request an early arrival for Sunday August 7th between the hours of 10am-2pm. This early arrival carries with it a $100 early arrival fee and can be applied for here. Students volunteering for first year student move in as part of a university sanctioned Student Organization should contact Erica Williams in the SAIL office to make arrangements for approval with no fee. Student athletes and marching band participants will be coordinated through coaches and band staff for a no fee approval as well. Academic needs for early arrivals should be coordinated through your academic program and the Office of Student Housing. Students should not arrive on August 7th without receiving a confirmation of their approved early arrival and check in location.


    The Office of Student Housing, located in the ground floor of Fields Hall will be open extended hours during #MSUMoveIn2016. You can visit the Office of Student Housing on the ground floor of Fields Hall, open until 8pm on Wednesday August 10th, Thursday August 11th, and Friday August 12th. There will also be weekend availability on both Saturday August 13th and Sunday August 14th from 10am-3pm.


    Unfortunately, Andrews Hall will not be ready to wow you on move in day, but our campus partners are working diligently to ensure that it is ready for students as soon as possible. As communicated via the room selection process and through communications sent to your MSU email, Andrews Hall residents will be staying temporarily in other campus locations until the project is complete. The Office of Student Housing will be communicating transition dates and times as soon as details are known, so watch your MSU email for news.


    Students looking to improve their living experience with an in-room microwave or mini-fridge can now order these items from the MSU Bookstore and use your financial aid to pay! Order here by August 5 and they will be delivered to your residence hall room!


    Students that are no longer required to live on campus (21 years of age, 60 credits, etc.) often times look for local housing or apartments for their living arrangements. It's a common misconception that living out of our residence halls is a cost savings, but please check our Housing Comparison Guide to see how that is not true at all! The apartments and residence halls at MSU are still the most cost-effective way to meet your needs as a student and keep you connected to the campus!


    • The Office of Housing has now moved to Fields Hall, located in the basement/bottom floor.
    • All residents should sign up for Eagle Alerts at . This is the best and fastest way to be alerted to weather-related issues, campus safety issues, and school closing information.
