Neighborhoods

Find the right fit.

Michigan State University operates one of the largest and most imitated residence hall systems in the country. MSU's 27 undergraduate residence halls are grouped into five neighborhoods to offer students an abundance of living and dining options.

When you move into a neighborhood, you begin to experience MSU on a more personal level. Places to eat, academic support, health services and friends are built-in. All that's needed is you.
