Campus living is an important part of the Marian University experience

Residential and Commuter 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 the Marian University policies and procedures in our housing contract. 

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

Marian University Housing Policy

  • All single undergraduate students who do not return to their parent's or legal guardian's home each evening are required to live on-campus. Parent's or legal guardian's homes must be within the following Indiana counties to commute: Boone, Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks, Johnson, Madison, Marion, Morgan, and Shelby.
  • Students who will have turned 21 on or before August 31 may apply to live off campus through the Office of Housing and Residence Life.
  • You must be registered for classes (at least 12 credit hours) in order to move in and live in campus housing.

Housing Policy Waiver

  • If you want to be considered to live off-campus without a parent before you are 21 years of age, please email to apply for Housing Policy Waiver for the 2020-21 academic year. 
  • Waivers will be granted on a rolling basis based on demonstrated academic success, campus involvement, age, and conduct history.
