Missouri Valley College Campus

With its 150 acres of land, MVC operates with a single campus that incorporates buildings and facilities that serve all its structural needs. It is located in the heart of Marshall City and anchored by Chillicothe from the north, Springfield from the south, Kansas City from the west and St. Louis from the east. 

The campus includes 27 On-Campus facilities with a parking lot. Some of the facilities include the Baity Hall at the centre, the Ferguson Centre, the Murrell Library and the Reed Kepner field which borders the south end of the campus. There are also Off-Campus sites which include; Porter-Brwon Rodeo Residence Hall, Blosser Hall and the School of Nursing and Health Science.[iv]

Missouri Valley College Residence

MVC offers both undergraduate and graduate students a buffet of options when it comes to housing and accommodation. These options include residence halls, apartments, suites and rooms across the school's nine residential communities. To ensure the safety and wellbeing of students living On-Campus, MVC provides a Resident Assistant (RA) and Resident Coordinator (RC) for each of the nine communities on campus.

On-Campus Residence: Students living on campus have easy access to the school facilities and can easily feel the aura of the community atmosphere in the residence hall community. On-Campus options for feedings include a Grab-and-Go option, Specialty Bistro, and traditional cafeteria-style dining to match students' style and schedule. The estimated cost of On-Campus residence per semester ranges from 2,500 USD to 3,000 USD.

Off-Campus Residence: The city of Marshal provides a plethora of local lease and rental facilities and information about this can be found at the Marshall Chamber of Commerce. More so, it is obvious that the living Off-Campus can prove to be less or more expensive depending on the amount a student spends on rent, food, and other basic necessities. It is pertinent to note that some financial aids may not cover basic necessities thus off-campus students are expected to check in on such details before making a residential decision. Students living Off-Campus are also expected by the MVC to get insurance cover and make available their phone numbers and house addresses immediately after they report for each semester.

Meal Plans: Food is always being served in the Ferguson Centre Dining and the meal plans available include:

  • 19 Meal Plan + 50 USD flex (for On-Campus students only)
  • Declining Cash Balance Plan
  • 14 Meal Commuter Plan.

These plans are flexible and students both Off-Campus and On-Campus are at luxury to choose from any of them. New international students should visit www.moval.edu/student-life/housing-dining/campus-housing/ to seek out the best housing options for them and then register at www.movalhousing.com.

Application for housing is carried out in March of every year.
