Mugla Sıtkı Kocman University offers undergraduate student accommodation for male and female students on campus. Applications for the University student dormitories must be placed through the National Student Accommodation Organization (Yurt-Kur). The capacity of the state dormitories located on campus is nearly 4,000 students. Since mainly subsidised by the state, monthly fees for the student dormitories are reasonably low. Advice and information concerning accommodation in the student dormitories can be obtained from Registrar's Office.

The student dormitories on campus are within walking distance of the academic buildings and provide a good environment for social needs. All rooms are furnished and general cleaning service is provided in each hall. Facilities within the dormitories include central heating, study areas, laundry rooms, showers, hobby rooms, hair salon, game room, table tennis, chess, and pool salons. All student halls are equipped with canteens and cafeterias to cater for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Guidance is also provided at accommodation desks set during registration weeks about other available accommodation run by foundations, private enterprises or individuals. In the city centre and in Kötekli village where the campus is located, there are several pensions, houses, apartments, and halls especially planned and furnished for temporary student residence. The current capacity of these residences reaches 5,000. Average room prices vary according to the facilities and the number of sharing persons. Deposit may be required in some rentals.

Another option commonly practiced by the students is renting an apartment flat. Prices may vary depending on the district, quality and size. Many students share accommodation to keep costs down and usually find places to meet their needs and preferences.
