Housing and Dining at Mizzou

Segment #6 from University of Missouri


We all know there’s more to college than just what you’ll study. There’s also where you’ll sleep and eat. Olivia is a senior and she’s about to give us a behind the scenes look at windows of Mizzou’s more than 20 residents halls, plus a taste of Mizzou’s world-class dining options. We can’t wait to hear about your experience. Olivia.

Thanks Alex. What’s up, everyone? Welcome to Mizzou. This place is electric. You can literally feel the buzz of new opportunities, fun activities, and student engagement all over campus. During my time here, I served as a student business ambassador, worked as a co-director for our annual leadership conference, and had three different internships. And it all started right here during my freshman year living on campus. Living in a Mizzou residence hall is so much fun with built-in activities in your campus neighborhood. Right from the time you move in during Welcome Week, there are literally hundreds of events and opportunities to meet new people and learn all about Mizzou traditions. My first home here was in a learning community, which meant that I lived on the same floor as many of the students I attended classes with, and living on campus isn’t just a great way to find a community. You also get 24/7 support from live-in professional staff and amenities like wifi, lounges, and study spaces. It’s so nice to wake up close to your classes every day. Another amazing part of living on campus is the food. Did you know that there are nearly 30 different places to eat at Mizzou? You’ll have a blast trying them all out, from the pasta, build your own salads, and made to order omelets across the dining halls to the burgers, Mexican, and sushi in the Student Center, there’s something for everyone. And you’ll never run out of options. The Mizzou community is so welcoming, and once you step on campus, you can feel how much students love being here. Mizzou has such a special place in my heart and I can’t wait for you guys to experience it. That’s it for me. Back to you, Alex.

Wow, Olivia. A supportive living and learning environment, plus places to get great food. Sounds like the perfect college atmosphere. I’d wanna live on this campus too. Thanks for showing us around.
