Shuttle Service

Shuttles can take you wherever you need to go on campus and deliver you safely back to your dorm any time between 7 a.m. and Midnight. Wondering how long your shuttle wait will be? Our shuttle routes have a tracking system so you can estimate your quickest route.

Internet Access

High-speed internet? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Residents can access SEMO’s high-speed internet through Wi-Fi or wired connections in their dorm room.

My experiences living on campus were nearly only great experiences. My first year I lived in a learning community and my floor formed a very close-knit group of friends. I have never had a roommate that didn’t become a good friend of mine.

Mail Service

As a resident, you’ll have mail and packages delivered to campus by various parcel services. For letters and envelope mail, you will have access to a mailbox assigned to your room within your residence hall/complex. Packages, delivered via mail services, will be delivered either to your residence hall’s customer service desk or to the mail lockers central location (Towers or Merick) depending on your residence hall. You will receive an email when a package has arrived and is ready for pickup. Residents are responsible for checking their own mailboxes and for getting packages from the lockers/desks to their room. Food deliveries are not considered mail and will not be held at customer service desks for residents.
