Living on Campus

Mission Statement

Living in a residence hall is a new experience for many students. Learning to live in a group situation requires cooperation, consideration and compromise. Most students find that the experience is ultimately valuable, enjoyable and formative. The mission of Residential Education is to enhance students’ academic experience by providing a broad spectrum of services. We encourage investment and involvement in a campus community that embraces diversity, promotes academic success and fosters personal growth — all while having fun.

Residence Hall Staff

The residence hall staff includes the Residence Life Coordinator and a team of Resident Assistants (RAs) who work to support the needs of the residential students. The Coordinator is a full-time professional staff member who lives in the residence hall and is responsible for overseeing the community within the hall and its day-to-day operations. The RAs are paraprofessional (student) staff members who are each assigned to a specific floor. They are a resource for their residents and maintain a vibrant and safe community within the residence hall.

Visit the Resident Assistant Program page for more information, and to access an application for the 2020–2021 academic year.

Residence Hall Application & Contract

All students who plan to live with us on campus must fill out a Residence Hall Application & Contract.  The information you provide will help us determine roommate assignments, so please answer honestly. We are often asked if we truly read each application, and the answer is yes! We believe that taking the time to personally assign roommates on this basis gives us the best results.

Community Living & Student Conduct

We have designed the residential program at UMM to provide a safe and comfortable environment where students may live, study, socialize, learn and grow within a community of peers. Each resident is responsible for his/her own conduct and may live as he/she pleases as long as it does not interfere with the rights of others. The Residential Education staff is here to ensure that the rights of residents and the property of the university are not abused. The guidelines, expectations, and policies set forth in the Guide to Community Living have been established to ensure a safe and cooperative environment for all residents.
