Apply for on-campus housing any time throughout the year! SOU offers housing for freshmen, transfer students, upperclassmen, and students with families.
For students entering in the Fall, the housing application typically opens up in late spring. Check the University Housing website for more information!
For students entering during Winter, Spring, or Summer terms, once you have submitted your enrollment deposit you may complete the online housing application.
All newly admitted first-year students who have graduated from high school within the last year are required to live on campus. Exceptions to the live-on requirement are made on a case-by-case basis, typically for students living with parent/guardians within Jackson County, or students that are married/have dependents. Students must submit an online request through their MySOU account to be considered for an exemption from the live-on requirement.
