Summer Camp & Conference Housing
The University of Mississippi offers summer camp and conference housing for groups with educational and recreational objectives for resident camps, meetings, and seminars. This includes groups which are sponsored by University of Mississippi academic or administrative departments as well as non-university sponsored groups. Our camps and conferences bring students from all over the country and world to our campus in the summer. Camp and conference housing is available from late May through the end of July. Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate requests for spaces in August as our staff are preparing the halls for the academic year. Please contact us for specific availability.
- Financial arrangements for summer camp and conference housing are cost-efficient and easy to administer. Room rates are based on a single or double occupancy per person per night. Invoices are sent to the organization contact at the end of the stay. University departments are responsible for submitting the necessary paperwork for interdepartmental transfers to the accounting office.
