Residence Halls Living in the residence halls contributes to your overall education. Research demonstrates that students who live on campus do better academically and rate their college experience as more satisfying. Southeast’s campus includes 13 residence halls, whether you are interested in community-style or suite-style housing. For more information, visit www.semo.edu/housing. After admission to the University, complete the Contract for University Housing online via the process outlined in your admission materials. A $150 housing deposit is required. Enrollment at Southeast continues to grow. As a result, the residence halls at Southeast may reach their full capacity by July 1. The recommended housing contract completion date is December 1. Due to space limitations, submitting a housing contract by this date does not guarantee that students will be placed in their choice of housing.

Residency ­Requirement

Southeast requires that all full-time students live on campus for two years (four semesters) unless they meet one of the following criteria: ✔ Living with parent(s) or legal guardian(s) and ­commuting from their residence within a reasonable distance (50 miles) of Cape Girardeau ✔ At least 21 years of age by the beginning of the semester for which they are enrolled ✔ Military veteran ✔ Completed 57 credit hours accepted by the University toward earning a degree from Southeast.
