Murray State University maintains eight coed Residential Colleges and one female-only Residential College . For proper and safe building maintenance, access to each Residential College is restricted to residents and their properly signed-in/supervised guests. Electronic card locks limit door access to each Residential College . Housing staff and closed-circuit cameras monitor these entrances.

A Residential Advisor is on duty each night in each building. Housing Security Guards are assigned to each desk during late-evening and night hours. During the evening, rounds are conducted to monitor activities in each building as well as to ensure that the exterior doors are secured.

Each Residential College is staffed with a Residential Director and numerous Residential Advisors (at least one per floor), each of whom lives in their respective College. As part of their responsibility for security, all Residential College staff are empowered and trained in enforcing Residential College security policies.

During break periods such as Spring Break and Summer Break, every attempt is made to secure unoccupied Residential Colleges. During these break periods, students remaining on campus are relocated to a central Residential College that can be monitored by Housing Security Guards.

The College Courts Apartments provide one-bedroom and two-bedroom units for married, single parent and non-traditional students.
