About Housing Terms and Fees

Housing comparison

In all cases, the stated housing fee covers the academic term dates found in the academic calendar.

Sometimes student residents need to arrive before term starts or leave after the term ends. This is an off-contract stay. In these cases, a reduced daily rate is charged in addition to the academic term housing fee. Click here to see 2019-2020 daily fees charged when not "on contract."

Meal Plan

Meal plan

Each term (fall and spring), all residents of M State housing are required to purchase a $900 declining balance meal plan to be used in the campus cafeteria.

Fall term unused balance rolls over from fall to spring. Spring term unused balance is forfeited to the food service contractor.

The cafeteria is not open on weekends, when campus is closed, or when there are no scheduled classes. Students will need to supplement their cafeteria meals program with meals they prepare in their apartments.

Room Inventory & Condition Report

Complete the Room Inventory and Condition Report form as you walk around during your move-in. You must submit the Condition Report within three days of moving in to remain compliant with your housing contract. Take your time, and be thorough.

Previous resident and staff forms will be compared to the one you complete upon move in. If there is damage to College property beyond what is considered normal wear and tear, and that damage was not documented in your move in report nor is it found on any other report, then appropriate repair or replacement fees may be billed to your student account upon check out.

This policy establishes procedures for M State's response to reports of missing residents, as required by the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008. For the purposes of this policy, a resident may be considered a missing person if the resident's absence is suspiciously different from their usual pattern of behavior or unusual circumstances may have caused the absence.
