Living on campus
In order to apply to live on campus at Mount Mary University you must complete the follow steps below. Only once both the Housing Application and Housing Security Deposit are both submitted will your application be considered complete. Additionally, Residence Life has a May 1st priority deadline for applicants. You may apply after the May 1st date but room preference and space availability will be given to applicants who apply prior to May 1st.
Choose your preferred room style:
Whether you value the quiet of a single room or family-like feel of a suite, you can indicate a preference for the room-style you prefer when you submit your housing application. Your room-style preference is taken into account by Residence Life when assigning you. Residence Life will use your highest preference available. Please note that each room type has a different rate per semester.
- Triple room with community bathroom
- Double room with community bathroom
- Single room with community bathroom
- Triple room with private bathroom
- Double room with private bathroom
- Single suite (two single rooms joined by a shared bathroom)
- Single room with private bathroom
Residence Life releases assignments throughout the summer as we prepare for move in day in August. The first round is the largest round of assignments and is typically released in early June. In your assignment letter you will get your room number, type, and roommate information (if applicable). Additionally, there will be information about move-in day as well.
As a result, you may not hear anything until early June about the status of your application. If you are concerned about whether your application/deposit was received please contact your Admissions Counselor or Residence Life (contact information below)
Finding the Right Space and Roommate for You
Residence Life uses your highest room preference when assigning the student to a space. Due to space limitations, some room types may not be available when your application is processed for assignment. As a result, you may not get your first, second, or even third choice but know that this room was the best available.
Additionally, Residence Life will place students together who indicate their roommate preference on their application. If a student does not indicate a roommate preference, then Residence Life pairs the student to the next closest application based on the other questions in the application. The best way to ensure a great fit is to answer all the Housing Application questions as honestly and accurate as possible.
