Move in day at Hurst Hall

MVNU2MSU (Movin' You to MSU) are the move-in days event each Fall semester. Students will be assigned a check-in date and time at their residence hall. Students will be checked in and 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!

Students will check in based on their affiliation group to a central location or directly at your residence hall on a specific date and time. We ask you to follow these guidelines given the Coronavirus pandemic challenges. No one will be able to check in early to enforce physical distancing strategies, COVID-19 screenings of students and guests, traffic around campus, and the amount of people in any given area.

Lofting Beds - 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.
