Incoming Freshmen

At Mississippi College, you will find that your time living on campus will be one of your richest college experiences.

Please read the Online Housing Instructions before you begin your application and room selection. These instructions provide a clear step-by-step outline of the application and room selection process.

Incoming Freshmen 2024-2025 Housing Information

As you complete your housing application you may notice a section on Decorating Your Room. At MC we partner with a company called On Campus Marketing to help our students find a simple way to purchase all of their dorm room needs. This service is completely optional, but you will be automatically opted in to communication and mailers based on the information you provide to the university. If you prefer to not receive mailers or other communication from OCM, please let us know. More information will be provided at New Student Orientation this summer.

Phase 1 (Opens November 1, 2023 @ 10am)

Apply for on-campus living and choose your roommate
  • Apply for housing
  • Edit and update your Contact Information
  • Create your housing profile
  • Pay $200 non-refundable housing application fee
  • Request or find a roommate of your choosing

Phase 2 (Opens February 12, 2024 @ 5pm)

Room Selection & Housing Confirmation
  • You will return to the housing portal to begin the room selection process based on the date you completed Phase 1.
  • If you have confirmed a roommate and both of you have accepted your roommate requests and have been accepted to MC, then only one of you will need to sign you up for an available double room. Always log back in and double-check that you were both assigned to the room.
  • Roommates will need to choose a completely empty double room if they want to be together. The room selection should read 2/2 to be able to pull in a roommate. 

Roommate requests are not guaranteed. It is a student’s responsibility to ensure that when selecting a room, if they have a confirmed roommate request, that the roommate is also placed in the room.  Requesting a roommate after you have chosen a room will not pull the person into the room. Always log back in and double-check that you were both assigned to the room.

Any student (current or new) who has applied for housing but misses the opportunity for room selection (which closes July 31, 2024) may have their room assigned by the Office of Residence Life according to room availability.
