May Intersession: Residence Hall 1

Summer First Term: Burns Hall

Summer Second Term: Burns Hall & Pittman Hall

August Intersession: Students who have rooms reserved on campus for 2018-19 will be assigned to those rooms for August Intersession if possible. Assignments in other locations will be given to students whose 2018-19 rooms are not available during August Intersession due to custodial and facilities work. Students who are interested in housing during August Intersession but who do not have rooms reserved for the 2018-19 academic year should email for additional information. Student housing for August Intersession is available only to students who remain enrolled for the duration of August Intersession. Any student who withdraws prior to or during August Intersession will be required to vacate the residence hall, no exceptions.




Application Info

Each session requires a separate application process. Payment of a non-refundable $15 application fee is required for completion of each application. If you are living on campus for more than one summer term, we encourage you to complete all applications at once.

Applications open: 9:00am on April 2, 2018

Due to limited housing options available during summer, we do not provide an opportunity for you to request a roommate prior to selecting a room. If you have a preferred roommate in mind, the two of you should select your room at the same time to ensure that there are spaces available for both of you.

The $15 application fee is non-refundable, even if you cancel your contract prior to the deadline listed below. Please be aware that failure to pay off the application fee that was posted to your bursar account may affect your ability to register for Fall 2018 or result in a hold placed on your Fall 2018 schedule.

You will be able to select your room for each term (May Intersession, Summer First Term, and Summer Second Term). If you are attending multiple terms, you should select the same room for all; otherwise, you will be required to move between terms. If you are attending Summer Full Term, you should complete both the Summer First Term and Summer Second Term applications and select the same room within each application.

Once you’ve selected a room, you may use the optional Room Change function in the application to view other spaces available to you and select one of those spaces if you’d like. Room Change closes for the term three business days prior to move in. Room changes will next be available after move in. Contact the Summer Community Coordinator if interested.


  1. Log into the student housing portal.
  2. Select Summer, and then select the term during which you’d like to live on campus.
  3. Complete all sections, including signing the electronic contract, paying the application fee, and selecting a room (May Intersession, Summer First Term, and Summer Second Term only).

Early Move-In Requests

Summer session early move-in requests will be approved on a case-by-case basis depending on space and staff availability. All early move-in requests must be submitted via email to Students will be notified of request approval or denial via Ole Miss Gmail. All residents who move in early will be charged a per day rate that will be provided within the early move-in approval notice. Early move-in fees will be charged through the bursar. Students who attend orientation on the day prior to the scheduled move in for a summer term and wish to move into student housing early must complete this request process.


Private Rooms

A limited number of private double rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Rates are higher for these rooms. If you are unable to select one initially, you may use Room Change to continue to search for available rooms. Private double rooms are not available for August Intersession except in cases where students who have private double rooms reserved for the 2018-19 academic year are assigned to those rooms for August Intersession.


Room Consolidation

While student housing allows you to select your room for summer, we reserve the right to consolidate and modify your selection if and when necessary.


Storage of Belongings

The Department of Student Housing cannot accommodate the storage of belongings between sessions, even for students who remain from spring semester through the full summer term and will live on campus in the fall. Students will be required to move completely out at the end of the scheduled session. The Campus Package Center offers summer and shipping and storage services to our residents.

Exceptions are made for students who are living on campus for August Intersession and for the 2018-19 academic year. More details will be provided directly to students who qualify for that option.
