Residence Hall Living

Experience More

Be at the center of all the University of Central Missouri has to offer.

 

The University of Central Missouri requires all first-year and second-year students to live on campus; living in a residence hall makes it easy to maximize your student experience.  You’ll be able to sleep in because you’re just a short walk to your classes—and to dining halls and on-campus restaurants. As a first-year student you’ll live with a roommate on a floor with other first-year students so you’ll be surrounded and supported by others who are adjusting to university life. Whether you choose east campus housing or west campus housing, each hall has its own unique advantages. Choose the hall that fits you best!  

 

The Suite Life

Suite Style Living

Suite-style Living

All of our residence halls are suite-style. UCM is one of the few schools in Missouri to offer the suite style arrangement to nearly every student.  Suites are two rooms joined by a full bath, so you get privacy and convenience.  The suite-style room is also great for developing a community on your hall floor. 

All residence halls are open during fall, winter/semester, and spring break.  Additional fees are applied to stay for these breaks based on student request.  Request forms are generally live mid-fall semester for fall/semester break and late February for spring break.  Forms will be located at ucmo.edu/housingforms.

Live on a SHIP!

Want to live and learn with students who share your passion for your area of study? Then sign up for our Special Housing Interest Programs (SHIP)! By choosing to live with students who are also in your same major or area of interest, you’re more likely to do well academically, have a better student experience, and graduate on time. Learn more about SHIPs by clicking here.

 

Note that we will be shifting to Learning Communities starting in Fall 2023! More information will come as we annouce those programs.
