McCormick Student Village

McCormick Student Village (MSV) is a complex of student resident halls on Mies Campus. There are six halls that house about 700 students in what is referred to as "communal-style living"—each floor shares 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. Take a virtual tour on Google. To reserve your room in MSV, visit MyRoom.
