New Students: Live On-Campus

Housing application for new students

Please review our campus housing policy to learn more about the requirements for living on or off campus. To apply for campus housing, follow these steps.

  • Download the Housing Instructions and click here for more information on residence halls at Marian University for new students.
  • If you have questions or concerns, email Residential and Commuter Life at or call (317) 955-6318.

Step One: Complete your application

  1. Click here for our housing application. You will be directed to eRezLife, which operates best in Firefox, Google Chrome, or Safari web browsers.
  2. Once signed in, you will first need to fill out the required profile information.
  3. After inputting the profile information, use the menu to navigate to the 2021-22 on-campus application
  4. Complete and submit your new student application. If you do not complete the application in one sitting, you can save and return later using previously entered information.
  5. You will receive an email instructing you how to pay your $125 housing deposit. Your application cannot be processed until your deposit is made. This deposit remains in your account as a refundable housing damage fee each year.

Step Two (optional): Create a roommate group

  1. After you complete your application, on the left side of the screen, click Roommate Groups.
  2. Click the link to create a new roommate group. Give the group a name, and add roommates using their Marian email addresses. You must have the exact email address that is listed in their eRezLife application, they must have completed an application for 2020-2021, and they must be the same gender.
  3. Click save.
  4. Once the roommate group is created, all group members must select the specific group as “my choice” to pull one another into a room or suite during room selection

Triple rooms, single rooms, and room assignments

If you would like to be considered for a triple room at a reduced cost, please note that on your application. Students may be placed in a triple room regardless of preference. 

A limited number of single rooms are available for students who need medical accommodations. Please indicate a request for a medical single room on your application and send via fax to (317) 955-6346 or mail medical documentation to:
