Mizzou provides award-winning living and learning programs designed to support your ambitions and success. Many former students will tell you that living in university housing helped them become the Tigers they are today. Here are just a few of the programs that contribute to the unique and welcoming Residential Life experience.

We care about your success

Students who live in university housing are more likely to stay in school and graduate in four years.

Learning communities

Learning communities group students with similar social or academic interests together in designated floors within a residence hall. Learning communities do not require an academic structure and they are open to all on-campus undergraduate students. 

  • Education. Students in this community explore topics in education such as education law, inclusive classroom management and personal development. 
  • Engineering. Dedicated to all areas of engineering. Students in this community explore future challenges in engineering and the diversity of disciplines in the field.
  • Health Professions. Students in clinical and non-clinical career paths in this community navigate the future of health care and approaches to empathetic health care.
  • Honors. Open to all honors students, regardless of major. Students in this community practice critical thinking skills and participate in unique Honors College opportunities.
  • ROTC Students in this community connect with other in the ROTC (Air Force, Army, Marines and Navy) to explore opportunities within each branch. 

Freshman interest groups

Unlike previous years, incoming freshmen will no longer have to choose between FIG participation and room/hall choice. Beginning in 2024, the MU FIGs program will not be residentially based meaning that FIG students can select their FIG and select their roommate/living arrangements through Residential Life!

National Residence Hall Honorary

The National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH) is a leadership-based honorary comprised of exemplary residential students who value service and recognition. NRHH is supported by the leading international organization advocating for the interests and welfare of residence hall students, while also providing opportunities for their personal growth and development. NRHH provides students with leadership skills and low-commitment, high-impact opportunities for serving and recognizing people in the Mizzou and Columbia communities. Learn more about NRHH.

Residence Halls Association

The Residence Halls Association (RHA) is a governing body that represents students who live in our residence halls. RHA provides educational and social programming to help new students transition to college life. Leaders also represent on-campus students in discussions with university administrators. Learn more about RHA.
