Housing at SOAR

Exterior of Hutchens House

Students can stay on campus the evening before your SOAR session for $25 per person. Reserve and pay for this additional night during the SOAR registration process.

Unfortunately, no on-campus housing is available for family members attending SOAR. Many Springfield hotels offer discounted rates for families of Missouri State students.

You may check in at the residence hall (specific one to be announced at a later date) front desk any time after 5 p.m. the evening before your SOAR session. Front desk staff will be present 24 hours to assist evening and late-night arrivals with checking in.
