Welcome to MSSU Residence Life

Choosing the right university is a tough decision. At Southern, we make this decision easier by providing several different housing styles from which to choose. We offer a variety of activities and entertainment in addition to providing a great environment to live and learn. Your surroundings will be comfortable, pleasant, and have convenient access to everything on campus. When you arrive, you will meet other students from all across the United States and other parts of the world.

A place to stay is not all the Residence Life Department has to offer. Recreation and relaxation should be a part of your time spent on campus. We offer students the means to have a good time in addition to an excellent educational experience.
