Housing & Dining Information

On-campus housing

All visiting International Exchange Students are automatically registered for campus housing in double occupancy unless otherwise noted on the housing form. The rent for one semester ranges between  $2,600.00 (for double occupancy per semester) and $5,000.00 (for a private room per semester). This will automatically be charged to your student account. In addition, a $75.00 application fee will be charged to your student account before arrival. Please contact Hannah Jones with any questions.

For further information regarding campus housing visit the Southern Miss Residence Life website.

Off-campus housing

Students wishing to live off-campus will be responsible for arriving early to find adequate housing within walking distance of campus, unless they plan to also have access to a vehicle. Our office has a list of recommended complexes that we would be happy to share with those who request it.


Eagle Dining (Meal Plan) Information

Students living on campus are required to purchase a meal plan through Southern Miss Dining Services. The cost of the meal plan is $1,810.00 and will be automatically charged to your student account.

Resident students are automatically signed up for the “Golden Eagle Pass”. Within the first two weeks of school, students can change their membership to a different Resident Dining Membership that better fits their schedule and dining needs.
