Consecutive Session Stays

Students who will be staying on-campus for consecutive summer sessions and who wish to stay in the same bedspaces will need to complete all necessary application at once to ensure correct booking. A student who decides after receiving a housing assignment for one session to extend residency for an additional session must email to ensure placement in the same room for the following session (if available). Due to the varied selection of facilities available for summer terms, students who are staying from the start of May Intersession or Summer Session I through August Intersession will be required to move to another hall after May Intersession and possibly after August Intersession.


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.


Private Rooms

Due to high occupancy during summer sessions, requests are not guaranteed and will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis as space allows. Private rooms may be requested by emailing The email must include the student’s name, student ID number, summer session and private room request. Students whose requests are accommodated will be charged the rate for a private room. Students will receive request status 3 days prior to move in.


Roommate Requests

Students may utilize the Roommate Management tab within the application for a particular session to request and confirm desired roommates. In order for a student to be requested as a roommate, he/she must have an application prepayment on file for that specific session. It is recommended that the second student to apply in a roommate pair initiate the roommate request by submitting the other student’s ID number within the request section and the first student follow up and confirm the request by logging back into his/her application. Each session will have a roommate request deadline 10 days prior to the scheduled move-in date. Any requests received after this date (the same date that housing assignments are issued) will be accommodated at the discretion of student housing staff.


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 Fall 2018/Spring 2019. Those students will be allowed to move from their summer bedspaces to their  bedspaces for 2018-19. More details will be provided directly to students who qualify for that option.
