Welcome Home!

Residence LifeIt is my pleasure to have you as a member of our residential community. Our residence halls are a vibrant and exciting part of campus life. We are committed to developing and building communities with you in mind. However, the Department of Housing and Residence Life is more than just residence halls…it’s about developing you as a student and a person.

Residential living is an integral part of the collegiate experience. National studies have found that students who live on campus participate in a greater number of co-curricular activities, interact more frequently with faculty and peers in informal settings, illustrate higher graduation rates, and are more significantly satisfied with their institution and collegiate experience.

Residence Life

Our residence hall program is designed to provide you opportunities for cultural, recreational, social, and academic growth as well as enabling you to develop your leadership skills. Our counseling services are designed to help support your various needs through a variety

of support groups, individual counseling and/or outreach programming.

The staff members who work for MUW’s Department of Housing and Residence Life are committed to helping you resolve any concerns that may arise during your time in housing. Please do not hesitate to contact any of our staff if you need assistance. We hope that your time with us will be enriching and enjoyable and that we can support you in achieving your goals while here at MUW.

Please feel free to contact me at any time if you need assistance in any way!
