Live and Learn at Mizzou

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

Students who live in our residence halls 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. They are open to freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors.

Freshman Interest Groups

Freshman Interest Groups (FIGs) comprise 15-20 first-year students who live near each other and enroll in a few general education classes together. By joining a FIG, you are not only living and learning with students who share your interest and your major, but you are also gaining a built-in study group. Learn more about FIGs.

Early Alert Program

Our early alert program notifies residence hall staff of students who may be struggling socially or academically. This enables us to reach out and offer assistance as soon as possible.

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.

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. We are 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. We provide 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.
