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!

The newest residential option on MSU's campus will be opening in Fall 2016 and has been recently named. Andrews Hall will house returning students and first-year student Living-Learning Communities. Click here for information about the building, the room plans, and who is eligible to select this option.
Summer housing applications are now open! Residents needing summer accommodation in either Fields, West Mignon, or their Fall 2016 apartment assignment can find out summer housing information and apply for summer housing here. There are housing options for Intersession, Summer 1, Summer 2, and full summer. You don't need to be enrolled in class for the summer, but you must have a fall schedule if you do not take summer classes.
Staying on campus for the 2016-2017 academic year? Room rates have been approved by the Board of Regents and are viewable here for all halls.
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!
