We hope you are looking forward to the residence hall becoming your home away from home. You will find living on campus at Mid-Plains Community College to be one of the most exciting and rewarding aspects of your collegiate experience.
Take a look at our site to see what Residence Life looks like for our students.
MPCC Housing Opportunities and YOU!
- Educational programs - right in your residence hall.
- Intentional learning programs - to learn more about yourself and others.
- Social and cultural activities - to make friends and expand your horizons.
- Free Wi-Fi
- Convenient access to the resources on campus - just a short walk to the library, Student Union, gym & fitness workout rooms, and your classroom buildings.
- A sense of community - with your hall mates and friends across campus.
A residence hall is more than just a place to sleep. In fact, the essence of living in a residence hall really has nothing to do with the building, and everything to do with relationships. A residence hall is meeting new friends and broadening horizons. It is experiencing living with people from different countries and backgrounds. It is learning how to live in a community with others. Ultimately, it is learning how to really care about those with whom you live.
How to Apply for Housing
On-campus housing costs are set by the MPCC Board of Governors each spring. Housing is limited and will be assigned to students based on the following priorities:
- The date MPCC receives the housing application and deposit
- Must be a currently enrolled student
- The Student must be enrolled for 9 semester hours
Following acceptance to MPCC, you will receive information to allow you to log-in to Campus Web and the On-line Housing Application. Those interested in living on-campus at Mid-Plains Community College on either the McCook or North Platte campuses must submit an Online Housing Application and $200 housing deposit. The online contract will be available after March 1st. If you have questions please contact the Director of Residence Life at your campus (information found below).
