Residence Halls

Panola College has five residence halls capable of housing a total of 249 students. Student housing is available during regular, and mini semesters. Meal plans are provided to students living in residence halls only during the fall and spring semesters. Meals are served in the Charles C. Matthews Foundation Student Center dining hall. No meals are provided when the residence halls are closed. For details on each type of housing click here.

Room reservations are made on a first-come, first-serve basis. Before a reservation is considered complete, the Residence Hall Application, proof of medical insurance/medical coverage waiver and proof of the bacterial meningitis vaccination must be received by the Residence Life Coordinator. The application can be accessed here.

In case of an unavoidable delay, a student should contact the Residence Life Coordinator prior to move-in for permission for a late arrival. Payment for room and meals will be made in full at the time of registration. The amounts are subject to change. Contact the Business Office to make payment arrangements for room and meals.

Only the College may grant residence hall space. All residents must enroll in and maintain a student-hour load of at least twelve (12) semester hours.

All residents will be responsible for the information outlined in the Panola College General Catalog, The Pathfinder (the student handbook) and the Residence Life Handbook.

All residence hall students are required to have the bacterial meningitis immunization at least 10 days prior to moving into the residence halls. No exceptions will be granted.

All students are encouraged to have the following immunizations or screening tests completed prior to admission: measles, mumps, rubella, tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, polio, varicella (chicken pox), hepatitis B, and tuberculosis skin test. Applicants who are accepted into the Nursing and Occupational Therapy Assistant programs are required to complete a medical form and will be required to have updated immunizations as specified by the particular department.
