Application Process

Applications are now being accepted for summer 2020. Please complete the request form.

Please note that Office of Residence Life & Housing does not provide or coordinate transportation, parking, food services, or reservation of meeting spaces for summer conference guests. These are arranged by contacting individual departments on campus. Find out more about MSU’s additional resources for summer conferences.

Contact Us:

Please contact Maiyaesha Spratley, Manager for Assignments, via email for more information specific to your camp or conference.


The Office of Residence Life & Housing offers a variety of residence hall room types, building sizes and levels of bathroom privacy. However, the majority of available rooms will include the use of traditional community bathrooms, where all of the guests on a wing or a floor share a large centralized bathroom. 

Some residence halls are reserved for enrolled MSU students, or are undergoing renovations, and will not be available for summer 2020.

Camp and conference sponsors are encouraged to explore our Residence Halls page to see photos and gather more information about our residence halls. Here you will find floor plans and amenity information for each hall.

Please note that gender designations in our halls will differ from assignments during the academic year. Hall and room assignments will be based upon the requests we receive; therefore, what may be an all female hall may be mixed gender during the summer. Our goal is to assign genders separated by floor or hall, and to keep camps with minors in separate halls from adult conference attendees. Please let us know if you have special requests so that we can make assignments appropriate to your camp.
