Welcome to Murray State Housing

The best college memories are made on campus at Murray State. The University offers nine distinct residence halls with the amenities, friendly atmosphere and safe environment you’re looking for. 

Make friends for life in your residential college, enjoy free laundry, cable and wifi, catch up on coursework in your floor’s study lounge or cook up a gourmet meal in the community kitchenette — we pride on making Murray State your home away from home. Located just a short walk from academic buildings, dining areas and athletic complexes, living on campus immerses you right in the heart of Racer Nation.

The residence halls are the hub of Murray State’s collective living and learning experience. Each residential college is led by a College Head (faculty member) plus a Residence Director (a graduate student) and Resident Advisors (undergraduate students) helping to foster an inclusive learning environment all across campus. Residence halls are protected by Racer Patrol, support from the Murray State Police Department, student rovers and a 24/7 front desk operation.

Racers of all majors, backgrounds and interests are invited to join the campus community and find their home at Murray State. Enjoy weekly programs and activity nights in your building’s common area, channel your inner athlete in intramural sports, get involved through your residential college’s leadership team and earn a paycheck through student employment. Living on campus is a great way to make your mark at Murray State.

For nontraditional, graduate, married and upperclassmen students, families and more, Murray State offers apartment-style living at College Courts, complete with a kitchenette, furniture and more.
