Any Truman student planning to live on campus for the 2024-25 school year can now apply for housing online through the housing portal in TruView.

Living on campus provides students with a built-in community of peers, in addition to offering a variety of amenities. All campus residence halls feature furnished rooms, access to laundry facilities and a meal plan. On-campus residents also have all of their utility costs included in the price of their room. More information about applying to live on campus for the 2024-25 academic year can be found online here.

“Students who live on campus perform better academically because of the close connections to fellow students that develop,” said Jamie Van Boxel, director of Residence Life. “It is also more convenient to focus on your academics when you are close to your classroom, study, lab and performance spaces. Having an on-campus meal plan makes it easy to eat a well-balanced meal without taking the time to shop for groceries, prepare meals and do the dishes. We also have some new choices for the coming year, so when you compare housing options side by side, the convenience of living on campus is very plain to see.”

Along with the current existing room options, Residence Life will be offering more deluxe double rooms in some residence halls. Triple occupancy rooms in Blanton-Nason-Brewer Hall, which were rarely in demand, will be converted to deluxe double rooms. Students will now have the option to secure a deluxe double room for the same price as a standard double. For upper-class students, Campbell Apartments will offer single-occupancy options for the first time in recent history.

“Returning students living on campus have more options than a first-year student because returning students self-select their room earlier,” Van Boxel said. “Returning students can group up with their friends to take over a section of a residence hall or a group of apartments in Campbell. Returning students also have the opportunity to live in larger rooms or in an on-campus apartment with more space with a roommate of their choosing.”

The housing portal is open now and can be accessed through TruView. Room selection will take place in the spring semester. Questions about the housing process can be directed to Residence Life at 660.785.4227 or reslife@truman.edu.
