Residential Life

Living On Campus...

Welcome home, Griffons!

Residential Life offers you more than just a place where you study and sleep. Your residence hall is a living and learning community designed to help you grow in all aspects of your life. Our goal is to be an extension of the Missouri Western State University classrooms by being the place where you continue conversations from class, work on group projects, or spend time studying by yourself.
