Housing and Dining

What you need to know

For students living on campus, MSU’s Residential and Hospitality Services is putting plans in place to provide as safe an experience as possible.

  • masked students in dining hallBefore move-in, each residence hall will undergo an extensive deep cleaning. Move-in dates will be staggered, and students will be limited in how many people can enter the hall with them.
  • The dining halls will offer enhanced grab-and-go options to accommodate mandated seating restrictions. Seating in dining halls will be reduced by half, and occupancy limits will be strictly enforced.
  • MSU is developing health protocols for residential buildings, as well as for symptomatic students.
  • Students will have the option to study from home for the fall 2020 semester if their class schedule is completely online and they are living at their permanent home address with a parent/guardian. This is not required; students can live on campus while taking online courses. 
  • Residence halls are currently open and available to students taking summer classes, unable to go home or for whom MSU is their home. More information can be found by reaching out to the Housing Assignments Office at 517-884-LIVE or liveon@msu.edu.
