You'll love living at Mizzou, where the entire campus is your home. You're only steps away from everything you need: activities and events, healthy food, public transportation, sports and recreation, study spaces, health care, and employment opportunities.

Follow these steps to make Mizzou your home

1. Complete the housing process

University policy requires first-time college students to live in university housing. The preference form tells us what you need to thrive at Mizzou. Contracts are available now and require a $325 pre-payment.

Complete Your Preference Form and Submit Housing & Dining Contract

2. Get your assignment

We will find a room that matches as many of your preferences as possible. Submit your housing preference form and contract by Dec. 14 for priority assignment. In early January, you will see your room assignment in the Housing Portal.

3. Pack up and go

Your room is partly furnished. You just need to bring whatever you need to make it feel like home. Please also coordinate with your roommate about who's bringing what. We've put together a list of suggestions for what to bring and tips for decorating
