MOVE IN: What you need to know!
Housing is full for Fall 2016. We are currently accepting applications for a waiting list.
Housing and Residential Life will begin welcoming students for Fall 2016 Check-in on Friday, August 19th, beginning at 9:00 AM. Check-in will continue throughout the weekend until 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, August 21st. Please be advised that MT Blvd. is currently under construction and reduced to two lanes. Please expect delays and use caution if accessing campus from this street. For more information, please visit the Parking Services website at http://www.mtsu.edu/parking/index.php. We urge students to label their boxes and tubs [tops and sides] very clearly with their names to ensure that they arrive at the correct location. Also, remember to keep hydrated and wear comfortable clothing and shoes on the day you come to check-in. Take advantage of lines by getting to know your fellow building mates as you wait patiently to get checked into your building. Remember you are making friendships that will last a lifetime. Roommate contact information for students who did not pre-select a roommate will be sent approximately a week and a half before school begins to on-campus residents at their MTSU email addresses. Students should get in the habit of checking their MTSU email regularly as this is the primary way that information is communicated to our students. Housing and Residential Life will host a variety of activities as the semester begins. We encourage students to become involved, make a friend, and start enjoying the benefits of living on-campus. We encourage parents and students to watch Tips for a Successful Move-In to become familiar with what to expect during the check-in process. We look forward to a fun check-in and a great Fall semester!
Classes in the Business Aerospace building, studying at the James E. Walker library, working out at the Recreation Center, attending football games at the stadium - your academic and student life revolves around the campus.
Living on campus places you at the center of the university community, ready for both academic and co-curricular activities. Most students find that MTSU residence halls or apartments are the right choice, and they become part of a vital living-learning community, and make friendships that will last for years. Research indicates that living on campus is one of the strongest influences on successful completion of an undergraduate degree.
More than 3000 students and families make their homes in 16 residence halls and apartments. While each living area is unique, each supports academic excellence. Professional staff and student leaders live and work in each area, coordinating services and programs that produce contented individuals. Computing facilities, student leadership training, recreational activities, referrals to academic support services, and a listening ear are just a few of the benefits of living on campus.
The main office for Housing & Residential Life is located in the Keathley University Center, Room 300. Regular office hours are 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. If you have any questions regarding the on-campus living experience, just drop by or call us at 615-898-2971.
