Non-Student, Faculty, or Staff Housing Request for 2024-2025

Non-student housing for faculty and staff is available on a limited basis and on a schedule that mirrors when housing is available to students.  The goal of non-student housing is to encourage academic partnerships and to bring visiting scholars to our campus to create unique opportunities for students.  The following parameters have been established for non-student housing:

  1. The need must be short-term (one academic year or less).  Examples of short-term housing needs include:
    • A guest lecturer or visiting scholar offering a course for a semester or academic year.
    • A temporary faculty member.
    • A traveling Admissions staff member needing housing when in Kirksville.
    • A newly hired Truman employee in need of temporary housing until they are able to find a permanent home in the area.
  2. The need is temporary rather than an on-going long-term housing solution.

Please direct questions to the Director of Residence Life; Dr. Jamie Van Boxel.
