Campus living is an important part of the Marian University experience

Residence life policies

Community living is an important part of your overall student experience in college. In order for community living to be successful, students agree to abide by Marian University policies and details in our housing contract. 

Completing an on-campus housing contract implies that you understand and consent to our policies.
