Housing Options & Meal Plans

HOUSING

**You are free to choose the housing accommodation that best fits your needs. We have both on-campus and off-campus options. Please carefully explore the options and let us know if you have any questions. 


On-Campus Housing

The majority of students who choose the on-campus housing option will be placed in a contemporary residence hall - Residence Hall 3 (RH3). 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.

Students living in RH3 will most likely have an international student. They will be a part of our international student living community. Roommate requests are possible. In order to request a roommate both students must email exchange@olemiss.edu and confirm who they wish to room with. If both students submit the request prior to room assignment and complete the Housing application on time they will be placed together. 

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 https://studenthousing.olemiss.edu/policies/.

Applications will be typically become available in May for the following fall semester and October for the following spring semester. We will notify all admitted students when they can apply for on-campus housing.

***Students applying through special programs may be placed in a dorm other than RH3 depending upon program requirements. Specifically, students required to have an American roommate will likely not be placed in RH3 as that is our international student living community and students placed there have an international roommate.***

Off-Campus Housing - Requires Independent Booking

There 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  and are not on a city bus route. 
 
No matter where you choose to live off campus, be sure to request a written lease from your landlord including:
  • a description of property and total number of people allowed to live in the property,
  • specific occupancy dates/length of lease,
  • subletting allowance,
  • deposit requirements,
  • monthly rent amount and due date,
  • how utilities (electricity, cable, water, etc.) are handled,
  • and responsibility of maintenance and repairs. 
We understand that choosing a place to live can be difficult. One of our former exchange students (Fall 2017) took the time to gather a list of pros and cons for the most popular housing choices. We are updating this pros and cons list during the Spring 2020 semester.
