You should have received information in your admissions packet from International Student and Scholar Services about housing options on campus. Different types of rooms and apartments are available on campus. As residence halls are very popular, you may not be able to move into the hall of your choice immediately.
If you sign a contract to live on campus, your deposit of $100 cannot be refunded after a specific date. First year students who are under 21 years of age are required to live on campus. If you were to move out of your campus housing early, you would have to pay a substantial penalty fee because the university housing contract period will be through the end of the semester or academic year, depending on your contract. For many students, the residence hall provides the most convenient living and is the best way to get to know students from the U.S. as well as other countries. Family and upper-class student housing is available as well. For more information on housing options, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Housing website at http://www.ucmo.edu/housing.
If you stay in temporary housing during orientation, there will be no charge if you sign a contract with university housing. However, if you choose to live off-campus, you will be charged for each night you stayed in temporary housing.
If you plan to live off-campus, we suggest that you come as early as possible to look for an apartment or a roommate. It can be difficult to find apartments or houses to rent in Warrensburg if you are limited on time. Remember that the temporary housing provided during orientation will be limited. Be careful that you have somewhere to go when the temporary housing becomes unavailable. See our off-campus living guide for more information.
