The residence hall community at MSU is based on the Neighborhood concept; a program that brings resources directly to students where they live in the residence halls. These resources include tutoring, advising, Nurse Practitioners, free fitness classes, and staff from across campus encouraging intercultural development and communication. The MSU Neighborhood model is a state-of-the-art housing concept created to help students learn, develop, and persist to graduation.

Quiet Halls or Floors
For students desiring an atmosphere where studying is primary, designated quiet halls or floors have quiet hours, generally between 8 p.m. and 10 a.m.
Flexible housing is an option that primarily aims to benefit students who wish to live with family members; students who have disabilities that may require them to live with a caretaker; or students who simply feel more comfortable living in a mixed gender environment.
MSU offers flexible housing options within most residential living facilities on campus. Students can request a Flexible Housing arrangement on a limited, opt-in basis only. Students who choose to live in Flexible Housing in a single room will be charged the single room rate.
For students wishing to live in a Flexible Housing arrangement with a roommate, students may choose to be randomly housed with another Flexible Housing student or may identify another student who has agreed to live in the Flexible Housing arrangement.
Students interested in signing up for flexible housing must contact the Housing Assignments Office at email@example.com or 1-877-9 LIVE ON (5483 66).
