Living at Mizzou

Portrait of three Mizzou students

Resident Advisor (RA)
Student staff members who live on the residence hall floors. Residential Life places a high emphasis on the educational role of the RA in building a sense of community on their floor. The position works to directly enhance residents’ knowledge of community service and civic engagement within their community (hall, campus, local, and national levels). Some RAs also serve as the primary educator and resource for Freshman Interest Groups (FIGs).

Freshman Interest Groups (FIGs)
FIGs include 15–20 first-year students who live near each other and enroll in a few general education classes together. Students in FIGs not only live and learn with students who share their interests and major, but also gain a built-in study group.

Hall Coordinator (HC)
A full-time, degree-holding professional who both lives and works within the residential area they supervise. The HC provides support to students and student hall staff to ensure that everything runs smoothly and to enhance the students’ living and learning experience.

Tiger Line is a shuttle service the University provides for MU community members at no additional charge. It provides routine transportation throughout the entirety of campus.

Students are expected to abide by all University of Missouri System Collected Rules and Regulations and to uphold the Standard of Conduct for the University of Missouri.  The Standard of Conduct (CRR 200.010) outlines behaviors and actions for which students can be issued sanctions, if found responsible. These sanctions range from a warning to suspension or expulsion. The purpose of the Standard of Conduct is to maintain a safe campus community, one where students can learn and be successful.  The conduct process is outlined in the Rules of Procedure in Student or Student Organization Conduct Matters (CRR 200.020).
