Department of Student Housing Mission Statement

Ole Miss pride and success starts with living on campus. Residential communities at the University of Mississippi support the academic mission of the University, providing transformative opportunities and connections designed to set students up for academic and personal success both inside and outside the classroom.  Student Housing cultivates interactions that inspire students to become exemplary leaders and life-long learners enriched with University spirit and a sense of belonging.


Student Housing aspires to create innovative, diverse, and academically supportive campus living communities that transform student lives and empower students to be engaged leaders as they navigate their college experience and transition to life beyond graduation.

Core Values

We honor our commitments, striving to always be honest, trustworthy, respectful, and ethical in our actions.

We know that respect for others fosters a greater opportunity for understanding.  Everyone in our community will be treated with dignity, regardless of thoughts, experiences, backgrounds, or perspectives.

We commit to ensuring that we communicate in ways that are respectful and healthy for everyone. We take responsibility to listen, speak, and clearly communicate pertinent information and concerns among students, administration, faculty, staff, and other stakeholders of the community.

We provide quality service with an expectation that all staff are committed to making residents and guests feel welcome.  We find ways to provide high-quality and timely-service solutions.  Returning phone calls and answering emails within 24 business hours, greeting guests with smiles, and treating everyone with respect shows our pride in serving.

We believe in a learning culture committed to problem solving, innovation, benchmarking, and adopting best practices. We recognize individual and group learning as prime means of delivering our mission and encourage continuous reflection through a process of review and improvement.
