Housing

Summer College students will live on campus during the program. Students will stay in Residential College South, a contemporary residence hall on the east side of the Ole Miss campus.

Students will live in a double room with another Summer College student. Roommate selections are based on our SCHS Learning Style Questionnaire (available in the SCHS Supplemental Application packet). Each double room has its own bathroom with shower and a mini-fridge. Example of a double room is available below.

Meal Plan

Summer College students will be enrolled in a comprehensive meal plan with a flexible spending account (Ole Miss Express). Students will have the following meal plan loaded on their Ole Miss ID card:

  • 42 Rebel Market meals (2 meals a day, Monday-Friday)
  • $130 Ole Miss Express cash (flexible spending)

Rebel Market. Students will use their meal plan at the Rebel Market. The Rebel Market is an all-you-can-eat cafeteria with a variety of food stations, including Asian fusion, grill, home cooking, pasta and pizza, and a salad bar. Gluten free and vegan options are also available.

Ole Miss Express. Express cash is a flexible spending account with a declining balance that students can use for a variety of purchases. Express cash is recommended as a supplement to the meal plan for small meal purchases, such as breakfast. Express cash can also be used for books, laundry, vending machines, and restaurants on campus and select locations in Oxford.

Weekend Meals. Meals on the weekend are not calculated in the above meal plan. Students will need extra food money to eat off-campus with their community groups and weekend trips.

Nashville Trip

This is an additional and non-mandatory weekend trip to Nashville, the capital of country music.

Students will spend Friday and Saturday nights at the famous Opryland Hotel and Resort.  Activities for the weekend will include a ground pass at Opryland, a tour of the Country Music Hall of Fame, shopping at Opry Mills Mall, and a fun tour through the city. This trip will be supervised by program staff members and counselors.

This trip has an additional cost of US $300 dollars and requires a minimum of 23 students.

Health and Safety

The welfare and safety of all of our students is the Office of Pre-College Programs and the University of Mississippi's top priority. We take safety very seriously and have policies and protocols in place that aid in the prevention and in the occurrence of emergent situations.

Health Care

For non-emergency health care, Summer College students have access to the V.B. Harrison Student Health Center located on campus. The Student Health Center is open Monday-Thursday 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM and Fridays 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

"Urgent Care" clinics are located throughout Oxford and are a good option when the Student Health Center is closed (e.g. weekends and after hours).

For emergency health care, students will be transported to the North Mississippi Baptist Memorial Hospital Emergency Room. Please review details in the Guidelines and Rules PDF. Non-emergency and emergency contact numbers will be provided at orientation.
