At Mizzou, we take the stress out of finding a room. We ask you to complete a housing preference form, which helps us understand what kind of environment you need in order to thrive at Mizzou.
Then, you get to relax while we find a room that meets as many preferences as possible, with priority given to your roommate and learning community or FIG of choice.
Don't worry if you don't know exactly what you want — there's no need to rush. You can change your preferences any time before March 1 and be included in the first round of room assignments.
Preference Form Sections
1) Academic Success
If you want to join a Freshman Interest Group or Learning Community, we need to know your major or general area of interest. This helps us place you in a community of students with similar interests.
Most students are paired together and placed in a residence hall by our staff. However, if you already know who you want to live with, we can accommodate that. You'll need to provide your desired roommate's name and myZou user name, and they also must request you on their preference form. Your roommate does not have to be in your FIG, but you cannot be in two different FIGs or learning communities.
3) Room and Hall Type
Some of our halls close over university breaks. Others are open year-round, so let us know if you have a preference. We also want to know if you want a single or double room. Finally, we'll ask if you prefer to live in community-style or suite-style living. We also offer a women's hall and gender-neutral housing options. If you don't have a preference, that's fine, too.
Check out our neighborhoods, and let us know if you prefer one over the others. Students who are accepted to the Honors College and want to live in our honors learning community will be assigned to Mark Twain Hall.
5) Housing Accommodations
We are committed to providing accessible and inclusive spaces for all students. Students with disabilities should register with the Disability Center, as well.
