We are delighted to welcome you to campus for the beginning of the 2014-2015 academic year! It promises to be a great, exciting, and fun-filled year here at Missouri State University.

This website is packed with information about the opening of the residence halls and moving to MSU. We hope this information will assure you a smooth move-in and check-in process. Also included are valuable tips, important contacts, and details on special events.

For a glimpse of what Move-In Day is like, watch our Move-In Video!

Once you are here, we hope you will take some time to explore the campus, get to know the housing staff, and let your family share the experience. Going to college is a big step and a big adjustment, not only for students, but for families as well. Please know that the entire Residence Life, Housing and Dining Services staff is here to help you all. Feel free to call upon any of us at any time for assistance!

We look forward to meeting you all and seeing you on campus this year!
