On-Campus HousingWe are excited to announce we are now able to guarantee on-campus housing. Students will be placed in a contemporary residence hall. These are double occupancy rooms (shared bedrooms). Residents in our contemporary halls enjoy in-room bathrooms, study rooms on each floor, conference rooms, community kitchens, and lounges with TVs on each floor. Each room includes a microwave/fridge. More information and current rates can be found at http://studenthousing.olemiss.edu and pictures of the facility can be seen here.
An on-campus meal plan is NOT required, but recommended, please see more information below.
All students living in on-campus facilities will have to follow policy and procedures as stated by the University and Department of Student Housing. For information about these policies and procedures for things like housing contract, room changes, alcohol use, visitors, etc. please visit http://studenthousing.olemiss.edu/resources-policies/.
Applications will be typically become available in June for the fall and October for the spring. We will notify all admitted students when they can apply for on-campus housing.
Off-Campus Housing for Independent BookingThere are many other off-campus housing options available to students. The best place to start looking is offcampus.housing.olemiss.edu/.
If you choose any of these housing options you must arrange accommodations on your own. Please remember that some apartments are not within walking distance of campus or on the city bus routes.

- specific occupancy dates/length of lease,
- subletting allowance,
- deposit requirements,
- monthly rent amount and due date,
- how utilities are handled,
- and responsibility of maintenance and repairs.
