Housing and Residence Life

Live at Marian University!

At Marian University, we believe living on campus ensures you get the most from your college experience.

College is a time for self-exploration and preparation for the future. Attending athletic events, plays, lectures, concerts, and other campus activities is an important part of your college experience. It is also a time for you to meet new people, develop lifelong friendships, and begin building a professional network. The convenience of living on campus, freedom from most domestic responsibilities, and opportunities to live, learn, and connect with others makes living on campus a great option.

Our approach to housing allows you to begin your university experience in traditional student housing with resident advisors (or RAs). As you progress through your undergraduate or graduate degree program, you will have opportunities to move into more independent living spaces each year. If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Housing and Residence Life.

We're here to assist you and answer any questions you might have. Let us know how we can help!
