Room Information

TWIN XL BEDS

Please note that the mattresses measure 80”, are considered to be extra-long, and that XL twin sheets will fit best. 

Need help finding extra-long bedding to fit the mattresses in our halls? We can help! Mississippi College has partnered with Residence Hall Linens for several years to provide our students and families with a convenient, affordable way to ensure you have sheets that will fit all of the beds on campus. Proceeds from this program are used for programming in the residence halls. There’s free shipping for all Value Pak orders, more than 40 color combinations available, and linens are delivered to your home during the summer for extra convenience.  Please visit the RHL website www.rhl.org/mcm.

Appliances

Residents of New Men's Residence Hall may no longer have personal microwaves in their room. The purpose of this policy change is to maintain consistency throughout the residence halls.

To compensate for this change, Mississippi College is now making MicroFridges available for rental or purchase to the following residence halls: New Men's, New Women's East, New Women's West, Mary Nelson, Ratliff, Chrestman, and Whittington. Follow this link to find out more! http://collegefridge.com/mc. Since MC has contracted with collegefridge.com, only those MicroFridges will be allowed in the residence halls.

The only appliances allowed in rooms are one small refrigerator per room (no taller than 3 feet), coffee pots, and irons. Coffee pots and irons must have a functioning automatic shut-off switch. All other appliances (i.e. microwaves, toasters, ovens, hot plates, sandwich makers, etc.) are prohibited. In residence halls for women, as well as New Men's residence hall, kitchens are provided for student use. In all other residence halls, areas are provided which contain a microwave for student use.

(College Plaza, Latimer-Webb, and Hederman & Gunter are not allowed to use Microfridges due to infrastructure limitations.) 

Upkeep

All residents are expected to keep their rooms clean and safe. The residents must maintain the private bathrooms and suites in Cockroft-Caldwell, Hitt-McCullough, Quick and East & West Towers. Occasionally the Residence Life Staff will check the students' rooms.
