Step 1: Apply to Mizzou

You must apply for admission to Mizzou before you can complete the housing preference form. If you transfer from a community college and your GPA is 3.0 or higher, you can earn the Residential Experience Award and reduce your housing expenses by $3,000 your first year on campus.

Step 3: Complete a preference form

Your housing preference form tells us what you need to thrive at Mizzou, including which neighborhood you want to live in and whether you want a roommate. Submit your form and a $25 processing fee as soon as possible so we can reserve your room. We’ll hold your room until you’re admitted or until Aug. 1, whichever comes first.

Step 4: Submit your housing and dining contract

You can submit a housing contract as soon as you’re been admitted to Mizzou — be sure to do so by Aug. 1. You will be asked to make a $325 pre-payment, which will be applied to your university room and board charges. You can make the pre-payment using your financial aid award, if you have one.
