Move in day at Hurst Hall

MVNU2MSU (Movin' You to MSU) is the move-in day event each Fall semester. Students will be assigned a check-in time based on whether they have been assigned an odd or even floor number and a check-in location based on their residence hall's campus zone. Once the students have checked in, they are greeted at their residence hall by move-in volunteers, including faculty, staff, spirit group members, athletic team members, members of various student organizations, Starkville residents, and even MSU leadership to assist in their move. It is a fun day to make new friends and get settled into your new home away from home! The date for MVNU2MSU 2018 is August 18th, 2018!

Students moving in to residence halls in the North Zone (Critz, Dogwood, Deavenport, Griffis, Herbert, Hurst, McKee, Nunnelee, Ruby, and Sessums) should check in at the Humphrey Coliseum. Students moving in to residence halls in the South Zone (Cresswell, Hathorn, Hull, Magnolia, Moseley, Oak, and Rice) should check in at the Newell-Grissom Building. You must report to the assigned check-in location before proceeding to your building. 

If you are assigned to an odd floor, you can check in from 8:30 A.M. until 11:30 A.M. If you are assigned to an even floor, you can check in from 12:30 P.M. until 4:30 P.M. Students living in McKee or Sessums whose room number begins with "0" will be checking in with the even floors.

Students playing cards


Many students are interested in lofting their beds. The construction of bunk beds and lofts must be inspected by Maintenance and Facilities, (662) 325-2190, as soon as you have checked in at your residence hall. MSU officials will inspect and approve or reject the completed project. Cinder blocks or any other non-approved device used to elevate or bunk beds are prohibited. Lofts are permitted in residence halls as long as they comply with the following: no furniture provided may be removed from the room, nothing can be bolted to the walls, and there MUST be at least 18 inches from the ceiling to the bed.
