4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I've only stayed in Residential College South and Luckyday, which are two contemporary dorms. My experience living in these dorms have been great so far. The rooms have their own bathroom, a refrigerator, and a microwave. The desks provided are a sufficient size. There are study rooms, lounges, and kitchens on every floor. Contemporary dorms are significantly more expensive than traditional dorms though. Traditional dorms have communal showers and fewer amenities than contemporary dorms.

2 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: The freshman are required to stay on campus while the upper class is not allowed to stay on campus at all. They don't have enough dorms to fit the student population and yet they keep expanding student population.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It is so convenient. Yeah, some of the more traditional dorms aren't the greatest, but they are in great locations. I am living on campus again next year and the only thing I think I'll be missing out on is having a kitchen and my own bathroom. Living on campus makes life so much easier (especially when it comes to parking), plus I think it is a great way to continue to make friends.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It is so gross and not tended to correctly. It needs to be knocked down and redone.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Its a dorm, there is only so much you can do to make it good. However, my classes were only 5 min away from my dorm, which made it super easy not to miss any class.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

At Ole Miss, freshmen are required to live on campus. The only exceptions are those who live in Oxford or who have a relative in town that they can stay with. Yes, some of you were looking forward to getting out of the house, living in your own apartment, and making your own rules, but living in the dorms isn’t all bad. Since you have no choice in the matter, you just have to deal with it. A bad attitude about living on campus is only going to ruin the experience for you. For those of you who are from out-of-state and don’t know anybody at Ole Miss, living in the dorms is a great experience that will allow you to meet lots of new people.

Before you get to your dorm, there are some rules you should know about that are going to be hard to live with. There’s a midnight visitor curfew Sunday through Thursday, and a 2 a.m. curfew on Fridays and Saturdays. No hot plates, candles, or incense are allowed. No alcohol is permitted in the dorms at all, and no smoking is allowed in any of the residence halls. Dorms are a great place to meet people, but they aren’t a great place to go barefoot. Make sure to bring a pair of flip-flops to wear in the showers. Bathrooms are communal and not likely to be as clean as the one you’re used to at home. They’re usually cleaned about once a week by the custodial staff, but what that really means is they hook up a hose to the water faucets and spray the bathroom down. It’s pretty gross, but you get used to it, and it makes you even more appreciative of clean bathrooms when you move out.
