McCormick Student Village (MSV)

McCormick Student Village will be experiencing lower occupancy in the 2022–23 term to undergo ongoing maintenance to improve the residential experience.

McCormick Student Village (MSV) is a complex of student residence halls on Mies Campus. There is one hall that houses about 100 students in what is referred to as “communal-style living,” with each floor sharing their restrooms. Each hall has its own social center and study hall so you can socialize, study, or head to the center lounge to relax, unwind, or find a quiet place to concentrate on tomorrow’s assignment. Residents on each floor typically set their own study hours and quiet times, and agree on other guidelines for conduct. Leaders from each hall belong to the Residence Hall Association, which helps organize intramural sports, concert outings, coffee houses, film screenings, and other social activities.
