WHAT IS Housing SIGN-UP?
Housing Sign-Up allows students to choose their rooms and roommates for the academic year. When Sign-Up begins, you’ll be able to go online and see which rooms are available in each building, floor by floor.
Housing sign-up will begin later in the Spring Semester. You can review the housing sign-up process on our Current Students page. Read through all instructions and review the priority timeline before beginning the housing application process.
We could not be more excited that you have decided to make Mississippi College your new home away from home. We believe you will find your time living on campus to be one of your richest college experiences and we eagerly anticipate you being a part of it.
You can review the housing sign-up process on our New Students page. Read through all instructions and review the housing sign-up timeline before beginning the housing application process.
If you have any questions about Mississippi College’s on-campus living requirements please review the Residence Life Requirement.
