Families and fans can rent rooms at an University of Missouri-Columbia residence hall for football games and other events. 

This will begin this fall. 

According to Mizzou's website, guests can stay in a furnished two-bedroom suite with four single beds for $120 a night. Parking is available for an additional $30.

To request a reservation, visit Mizzou's residential life website.

Free high-speed internet is included, along with economy bed lines and towels. 

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, "Mizzou leaders have taken seven residence halls offline and decided to explore avenues such as rentals to make up money lost on that space" after years of "declining freshman enrollment, with large projected dip this coming fall."

This is a developing story. Please check back for updates.
