Mission Statement

Living in a residence hall is a new experience to many students. It can be valuable as well as enjoyable. Learning to live in a group situation requires cooperation, consideration and compromise. The mission of Residential Education is to enhance students’ academic experience through the provision of a broad spectrum of services from a holistic approach. We encourage investment and involvement in a campus community that embraces diversity, promotes academic success and fosters personal growth all the while having fun.

About the Office of Residential Education and Commuter Life

The Office of Residential Education and Commuter Life strives to support the needs of both residential and commuter students on campus. The Office oversees UMM’s two residence hall on campus, Sennett and Dorward Hall, where students who select to live on campus, live for the duration of the academic year. Please explore the amenities and services the residence halls offer!

Residential Education Staff

The Residential Education staff includes a Director, Assistant Director and a team of Community Advisors (CAs). The Director and Assistant Director are full-time professional staff members who live in the residence halls and have the primary responsibility of overseeing the community within the halls and their day-to-day operations. The CAs are paraprofessional staff members who are assigned a specific floor and have the responsibility of being a resource for their residents and ensuring a vibrant and safe community within the residence halls.

Residence Hall Application & Contract

All students who will be living on campus with us, need to fill out a Residence Hall Application & Contract.  The information you provide us about yourself is what we use to help us figure out who will be roommates – so please be honest in your answers.  A common question we get asked is if we truly read each application; and the answer is yes we do as it typically gives us better results than if a computer assigned roommates.
