Moving In

Welcome to UMSL!

We're here to make this process easier for you.  We know that moving into a residential hall is an exciting, scary, and defining moment in your college career.  We've collected some handy information that you may find useful in guiding you through this process.

  1. Make sure you've completed all Required Forms
  2. Know what you should bring on move-in day

Housing Assignments

Housing assignments for Oak, Villa, and Villa North will be available through Housing Self Service.  Once housing assignments are made in our system, student accounts are automatically billed for the full room and board charge. Financial Aid then makes a disbursement up to 10 days prior to the start of class.
