Summer Housing

Residence Life is pleased to offer summer housing for Truman State University students. We provide great places to stay while you further your Truman education. Summers in Kirksville are filled with fun experiences for our students, and we’re happy to be a part of that.

For preferred eligibility for summer housing on campus this year, you must either:

  • Be enrolled in a summer course, and in good financial standing with the University AND/OR
  • Be enrolled in a fall course as a continuing student, and in good financial standing with the University.

Students who are staying on campus this summer but do not have a Fall 2021 housing assignment will need to move out August 1, 2021. This will give housekeeping staff time to clean rooms for fall move-in. Charges will be adjusted to accommodate this checkout.

You do not have to be enrolled in coursework each session to stay for each session. Taking one course during one of the sessions is enough to be eligible to stay for any and all the other sessions.

Sessions and Pricing

We offer flexible reservations to meet your summer housing needs. Reservations are $41.25/night, which includes meals when the dining hall is open. Reservations are $25/night when the dining hall is closed (May 8 – May 30).

Students must reserve a minimum of 21 nights. Stays must also be consecutive nights (no gaps in the reservation are permitted). Only students enrolled in only a May or August interim course may reserve a shorter stay. You will need to list your interim course information in your housing registration so it can be verified.

You also have the option of reserving a Microfridge unit for your bedroom. The daily rate is $2.50.

Summer students will be housed on-campus in West Campus Suites. Each student will receive their own SINGLE room in a two-person suite.

If you are currently living on campus, you may be housed temporarily in your current assignment until your May Interim placement is ready. Likewise, students staying in the August interim may be moved to their fall placement or other housing as first-year student move-in day approaches.


To secure housing, you will need to sign up online no later than Monday, May 3rd.
