Summer Move-In

Move-In Schedule

Welcome to summer housing! Southeast Missouri State University is very pleased to have you as part of our campus community. Move-in begins Tuesday, May 18th at 10:00 am - 4:00 pm for summer residents choosing to stay on campus after their Spring semester move out dates. All check-ins take place at the Towers Customer Service Desk (1000 Towers Circle).  Students arriving later in the summer will also check-in at the Towers Customer Service desk on their date of arrival.  Summer 2021 housing will be hosted in Towers South, with students having the opportunity to choose a single- or double-occupancy room (not all single room requests may be honored due to limited space during the summer).
