Where You’ll Live
Students always tell us they chose Mizzou because “it just felt right” the moment they stepped on campus. It’ll feel just like home once you move in and make friends. Every MU resident is part of a Learning Community — students living and learning in the same hall together. This way you get to know students with similar interests, build amazing friendships, discover awesome study groups and become an active part of the community you live in.
Every Mizzou residence hall has common study areas, laundry facilities, kitchens, comfy living quarters and supportive staff members. But each hall is a little bit different. For example, Gateway Hall features a rooftop garden, and the art-and-music-focused McDavid Hall has a gallery for showcasing student artwork and a piano for impromptu performances.
At Mizzou, we offer you the flexibility to choose a res hall that works for you from a comfort, lifestyle and financial perspective. Rates are determined in part by the type of room in which you live. You can choose to kick it old-school (with modern amenities of course) in our traditional-style res halls or live the suite life in one of our suite-style halls. If you know you won’t be heading home over breaks, be sure to choose a dorm that stays open when school isn’t in session.
Nom Nom Nom 🍕 🍔 🍰
Treat your taste buds to an international culinary tour at Do Mundo’s Churrascaria (barbecue of the world), Baja Grill (Caribbean-Mexican), Pomodoro Pizza & Pasta (Italian) or Sunshine Sushi (Japanese). MU also has four all-you-care-to-eat residential dining facilities on campus and six take-out locations that work with your dining plan. We have restaurants, coffee shops and convenience stores, too.
These are Your People
Learning Communities (LCs) and Freshman Interest Groups (FIGs) group together students with similar interests or academic paths to enhance your learning experience, so it’s important to choose the right one for you. You have best friends you haven’t met yet waiting for you.
CoMo: Where the ❤️ Is
Columbia, or CoMo as we sometimes call it, is a lively college town with tons of fun and exciting things to do. Enjoy an outdoor concert downtown, meander through our many hip boutiques, or grab a bite on a sunny restaurant patio. There are tons of film, art and music festivals throughout the year, and, of course, the town is a black-and-gold spectacle on Mizzou game days.
