  • Room Selection 2023 

    The room selection process will begin on May 1st, 2023. Access times were sent to students who paid their application fee before April 6th at 4PM. Students who paid after April 6th at 4PM will have access to room selection at 9AM on May 15th. 

    Room Selection Access Times are determined by the following:

    • Students who pay the application fee any time between September 1st and September 30th will have room selection access times randomly generated for round one of room selection.
    • Students who pay the application fee between October 1st and April 6th at 4 pm CT will have room selection access times assigned in the order their application fee was received for round two of room selection.

    The University of Mississippi has a freshman residency requirement. All incoming freshmen must complete the student housing application or have an approved application for exemption from the freshman residency requirement. For any additional information, please visit the Incoming Freshman Application page. At the time that all spaces are reserved, Student Housing will move to a waitlist process. Please reference the Waitlist FAQs for more information.

    The Department of Student Housing is excited to announce that we have contracted with The Quarters to offer apartment-style living for our first-year freshman students for 2023-2024. These three and four bedroom apartments come fully furnished, with a private bathroom, full sized kitchen, and access to all the amenities that The Quarters offers. It is located adjacent to campus on the OUT Bus Route, which provides safe and easy transportation to the main part of campus. 

    Student Housing is dedicated to creating an impactful first year experience for all of our students. A full-time Community Director and staff of Resident  Assistants will be living and working at The Quarters to provide programming and support to the students living in these Student Housing managed spaces, just like those living in our residence hall and residential college communities. 

    You can review the university’s online campus map to see the location of The Quarters immediately west of the campus.

    The Quarters will be available for first-year freshman students to choose during the room selection process starting in May.

    Triple Rooms Available for 2023-2024

    In order to accommodate the University’s growing enrollment and meet the housing needs for all incoming freshman students, the large double rooms offered in Martin Hall, Stockard Hall, Residence Hall 2, and Residence Hall 3 will be reverted back to triple rooms, housing three students. These rooms will not be offered as large doubles in Martin Hall, Stockard Hall, Residence Hall 2 (males only), or Residence Hall 3 for the 2023-2024 academic year. Student Housing is excited to offer triple rooms as a way to fulfill requests by providing the opportunity for three students to live together in campus housing.
