MU to rent out some residence halls on weekends
COLUMBIA - The University of Missouri has announced a housing program that would allow guests to rent out rooms in several residence halls for weekends in the fall of 2017.
Rooms are available for all weekends, giving visitors a place to stay for football game and Family Weekend. Housing is also available for people coming to Columbia for the total solar eclipse, which happens Aug. 21.
The rooms are two-bedroom furnished suites with four single beds for $120 plus tax. Bed linens and towels are provided as well as wifi. Parking is available at an extra cost.
Reservations must be canceled up to 48 hours in advance.
The University announced the program amid a budget shortfall and a decrease in freshman enrollment which caused numerous residence halls to shut down.
Reservations can be made on the University's website.
