  • Priority Deadlines

    Housing assignments are made on first-come basis when the contract and deposit are both received. We will accept contracts up through the beginning of the term, provided space is still available. However, if students want to have a choice of residence hall and roommate preference, getting their contracts in prior to when room assignments are made for the following term is very important to increase that their preferences might be available. After room assignments are made, changes may not be possible. Below are the Priority Registration Deadlines for each term to have applications in prior to room assignments being set.

    • MAY 1 is the priority deadline for the upcoming FALL term
    • NOVEMBER 1 is the priority deadline for the upcoming SPRING term
    • APRIL 1 is the priority deadline for the upcoming SUMMER term – NOTE: summer term housing may be limited by the College to specific residence halls as all halls will not be open for the summer


    Common area lounges for residents with couches, big-screen televisions, computer labs, pool & ping pong tables, microwaves and vending machines are available in the Beatrice and Milford Campus residence halls.

    Laundry Facilities

    Homestead, Meadow and Prairie Halls offer laundry facilities that integrate with an app to pay-as-you-go. The app also provides notifications when your laundry cycle is complete. Coins can be used for those who do not want to use the app. Coin-operated washers and dryers are available in the other residence halls for student use.

    Activities & Leadership

    Residence Life staff provide residents with activities and events throughout the school year, focusing on educational, recreational and social opportunities. Examples include game nights, movie nights, speakers, educational programs, pool tournaments, basketball tournaments, and late-night breakfasts during finals. Residents can find leadership opportunities and make new friends by becoming a Resident Assistant. Resident Assistants are typically second-year/second term students hired to work in the residence halls, providing leadership, team-building, community development, programming, and administration to the students living on campus. Each RA lives on campus, and they are hired according to each campus' needs. Contact the Residence Life Office for more information.

    Meal Plan

    A 14-meal-per-week dining plan is included in the cost of all residence halls. Dining facilities include multiple options such as pizza, sandwiches, a daily special and a full soup and salad bar to appeal to any appetite for the all-you-can-eat buffet-style meal plan. Facilities are available Monday through Friday in Milford and all week long in Beatrice, including brunch on weekends. Beatrice residents have an option to upgrade to a 17-meal plan for a small additional fee.

    The meal plan is mandatory. Residence Life students cannot opt out per our contract with Great Western. If students have food allergies or sensitivities, Great Western is trained to accommodate those needs. The first step in requesting those accommodations is to reach out to the Great Western Food Service Manager for your location. This is required as a first step prior to working with the SCC Accommodations Resource Office. Great Western contact information is below:
