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.
Why Live on Campus?
What is it like to live on campus? You’ll have no problem getting comfortable thanks to our residence halls, which include six newly-renovated halls and Andrews Hall, our newest building featuring suite-style rooms and numerous features that meet the modern needs and of current and future students.
Living on campus is a fantastic way to immerse yourself in the MSU experience and make the most of all of the opportunities we have to offer. We look forward to welcoming you to campus.
MSU is your home away from home and the Housing Office is here to help you make the most of your time at MSU.
If you've applied and been accepted to Morehead State University and are ready to be a part of a vibrant and thriving community in the residence halls, then we are delighted to welcome you home.

Thinking about Living Off Campus?
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 compare. The apartments and residence halls at MSU are the most cost-effective way to meet your needs as a student and keep you connected to the campus.
