The Office of Residence Life at Southeast Missouri State University is pleased to offer housing to guests of the University.  

Residence Hall and Room Assignments  

During summer session all assignments will be in the summer school residence hall. In most cases, assignments will be made to vacant rooms and suites within our residence halls. Every effort will be made to keep individuals from the same program on the same floor of the assigned residence hall. 


All building exterior doors are locked for security. Check-in arrangements should be made in advance to avoid problems accessing the building. In most cases, check-in will be done from the Customer Service Desk of the residence hall you will be staying in. When checking out of your room, keys should be returned to the Customer Service Desk or to the Office of Residence Life.
