Residential colleges at Murray State are a unique benefit only offered at a handful of colleges in the nation. If you live on campus, you'll join one of eight unique residence halls with individual mascots, colors, student councils and more. Exclusive networking opportunities and academic support make these special communities in Murray State's larger community something to be proud of, and even non-residential students are welcome to get involved.
