You get to pick your room, from those available! The Housing & Residence Life Department is currently in the process of installing a new housing software called “StarRez”. Once the system goes live this summer (be watching your student email for a notification) YOU, the resident, will be able to login and hand-select your room and even who you would like your roommate to be.
Our key and lock system allows each resident to access their building, suite, and bedroom with a single key, to the exclusion of other residents. Enjoy the reduced keychain weight!
Each lobby and first floor common area has wide-angle security camera coverage, digitally recorded and accessible by University staff. This camera coverage was recently expanded to include elevators, and typically covers each entry and exit door as well.
Each building is equipped with a state-of-the-art emergency alarm system, with a smoke detector in each bedroom. A central panel displays highly useful information, such as where an alarm was triggered in the event of an emergency.
All bedrooms and living rooms have high-speed internet access, either through Ethernet connect or Wi-fi.
Phone jacks can be activated by request in each suite in the event a resident wishes to have a land-line phone. Local calls are free of charge.
Heat and air in Choctaw, Chickasaw, and Shearer Halls are fully adjustable by the residents of each suite.
Students living in the residence halls will enjoy the convenience of study lounges, social lounges, vending machines and laundry facilities. A typical room includes heat and air conditioning, desk, chair, bed, mattress, wardrobe and a dresser per student.
Double occupancy is the normal accepted room assignment, although there could be the option to purchase a single occupancy room.
Students will be required to select one of the various meal plans offered through Dining Services.
These two adjacent buildings form one of the most recognizable structures on campus, an 8-story facility with breathtaking views of the campus and surrounding area from the top floors. Most rooms are suite-style living arrangements, where four students share a bathroom and shower, and two students share each bedroom (2 bedrooms per suite). The rooms are fully furnished with two modular style beds that can be lofted or bunked, two desks, and two dressers. There is a closet for each occupant, and some rooms are equipped with shelf space and locking closets.
There is a first floor lobby area where residents can relax, watch television with friends, play video or board games, or use the pool table. Recreational and utility items can be checked out through Residence Life staff stationed in the lobby areas at various posted times throughout the day and evening. These items include pool cues, board games, vacuum cleaners, and brooms. Each floor is primarily accessed by means of a central elevator bank. Each floor has a lobby area that can be used for socializing in a quieter space than the main lobby.
Choctaw Hall is primarily an all freshmen facility, and Chickasaw Hall is primarily reserved for upperclassmen. Each year, the specific community designations may change to reflect our changing interest and occupancy rates.

Shearer Hall is the premiere living facility at Southeastern. Completed in 2006, this building houses more than 300 residents in apartment style suites, with an adjacent outdoor volleyball court and half-sized basketball sport-court. Most suites have four separate bedrooms surrounding a living room space and kitchenette, equipped with a full sized refrigerator and built-in microwave. Bedrooms have individual closets, locking doors, and are fully carpeted. Each bedroom space has its own cable television connection, in addition to the living room space. There is plenty of cabinet space for storage of dry goods, and each suite has its own heat/air thermostat. There are also a limited number of two bedroom suites.
The u-shaped building surrounds a recreation courtyard area and a “great-room” off the lobby with a flat-screen television, baby grand classical piano, full-scale kitchen with an oven and stove-top, and group meeting space.
The lobby space can be used to relax, watch television with friends, play video or board games, or use the pool table. Recreational and utility items can be checked out through Residence Life staff stationed in the lobby areas at various posted times throughout the day and evening. These items include pool cues, board games, vacuum cleaners, and brooms. Each wing of each floor of the building has an individual lock – separating it from the residents of the rest of the facility and providing additional security. There is a central elevator for easier access to each floor, and the building is equipped with a state-of-the-art fire suppression and fire alarm system – with smoke detectors and fire sprinklers throughout the facility.
Residents of Shearer Hall are treated to easier mail access, as their student mail is delivered right to their lobby mailboxes by the campus post-office – it is the only building on campus with this service.
Although primarily a facility reserved for upperclassmen, there is space reserved in Shearer Hall for freshmen students on a first come-first served basis.
