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!
As a reminder, after checking in, residents should complete the paperwork sent to their MSU email account to complete their check in process. This paperwork includes verification of your room condition report, emergency contact information, and fire suppression forms. Questions about this process should be directed to hall staff.
Looking to explore a different rooming option on campus? The Office of Student Housing will be conducting Great Change Day where students can explore new living options under a no questions asked policy. Students can pursue this in person on a first come first served basis at the Office of Student Housing on Wednesday September 7, 2016 beginning at 9AM on the ground floor of Fields Hall.
Residence Hall Association is the voice of the students who live on campus. This body can make recommendations to administration in regard to operational policies, procedures, and governance. All residents are encouraged to attend the general assembly meetings and let their voice be heard. The first meeting of the fall semester will occur on Tuesday August 30 at 5PM in Rader Hall 112.
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!
