MSU Home :: Housing

    The Office of 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. 

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

    Preparing the residence halls for fall opening requires the coordination and hard work of numerous departments on campus.  This planning and preparation happens in a limited stretch of time due to camps, conferences and summer housing occupying spaces during the summer as well as facility upgrades and improvements happening during summer months.  As a result, housing only permits students who are participating in an authorized university activity to reside in the halls prior to scheduled arrival dates.  Accordingly, upper-class residents may not arrive before Wednesday, August 13th unless they are sponsored and participating in an authorized activity.  Freshman students cannot move in until Thursday, August 14th unless they are sponsored and participating in an authorized activity.

    *Students are not permitted to drop off items in their room prior to scheduled arrival dates.

    *Residential rooms and apartments are locked until a resident checks in and access to your room will only be granted after you check in and receive your room key.

    *You will not be allowed to access or move in to your building until your designated move-in time.  


    • Fall Opening: Returning students can return beginning on Wednesday, August 13th.  New student move in day is Thursday, August 14th.
    • Housing Deposit Refund Request - only request your deposit if you are not returning to Housing for the upcoming 2014 - 2015 academic year.
    • Housing is only guaranteed for applications that have been received as of July 1st.  All others received after that date will be placed as spaces become vacated.
    • Any housing cancellations after July 1st will result in a late cancellation fee of $250
