Students may choose to live in a private apartment or contract a room in one of the 19 University-owned residence halls (dormitories). The cost of a double room (a room shared by two people) in an MU residence hall for one semester with 17 meals per week is between $4500 and $5000 per semester, depending on the particular residence hall chosen. The cost for the summer session is approximately $2000. We recommend that single students live in the residence halls because the experience helps students easily interact with American students in daily situations. Living in a residence hall helps the international student practice speaking English and understand American culture. Another popular option for students is to live off campus in a privately owned apartment.
