The University of Central Missouri requires all first-year and second-year students to live on campus; living in a residence hall makes it easy to maximize your student experience. You’ll be able to sleep in because you’re just a short walk to your classes—and to dining halls and on-campus restaurants. As a first-year student you’ll live with a roommate on a floor with other first-year students so you’ll be surrounded and supported by others who are adjusting to university life. Whether you choose east campus housing or west campus housing, each hall has its own unique advantages. Choose the hall that fits you best!
All of our residence halls are suite-style. UCM is one of the few schools in Missouri to offer the suite style arrangement to nearly every student. Suites are two rooms joined by a full bath, so you get privacy and convenience. The suite-style room is also great for developing a community on your hall floor.
All residence halls are open during fall, winter/semester, and spring break. Additional fees are applied to stay for these breaks based on student request. Request forms are generally live mid-fall semester for fall/semester break and late February for spring break. Forms will be located at ucmo.edu/housingforms.
Want to live and learn with students who share your passion for your area of study? Then sign up for our Special Housing Interest Programs (SHIP)! By choosing to live with students who are also in your same major or area of interest, you’re more likely to do well academically, have a better student experience, and graduate on time.

We have all the information you’ll need to move in to your new home, including packing lists, important dates, and services. Be sure to visit at the end of the year to see check-out information!

Beginning fall 2021-2022, UCM will revert back to double occupancy rooms. Also, for fall 2021/spring 2022, Nattinger-Bradshaw, South Ellis, and South Todd will be offline. This decision was made as we anticipate a significant shift in the pandemic that enables us to provide a safe environment for our students that also contributes to building a true sense of community in our residence hall system.
South Ellis will be offline for 2021-2022
