Housing Selection Process for Returning Students

[Download the complete housing selection booklet]

The Marquette University Office of Residence Life is pleased to announce our returning student sign-up process for the 2017-18 academic year. This information is intended to introduce the automated selection process to you, as you will be utilizing this process to choose a room, roommate(s), and meal plan for the 2017-18 academic year.

There are several important features you will need to understand in order to successfully select your room assignment for next year. These features are explained in greater detail throughout this website and are highlighted here for your convenience:

Residence hall selection is not meant to be stressful, and following a few simple guidelines should make the process a lot easier:

  1. Pay your $300 housing deposit. All students must pay a $300 non-refundable housing deposit to participate in the room selection process. Payment must be submitted online (Campus Living website) during the week of deposit collection (March 20–24) to ensure computer activation of your assignment time.

  2. Make sure you have downloaded the housing selection booklet. Read through the entire process carefully.

  3. Log into the Campus Living website. [Please note: you must use a PC with Internet Explorer or FireFox to access this site.] Verify your assignment time anytime after Tuesday, March 21 at 8 AM (up to 24 hours after deposit payment) to ensure that your housing deposit has activated your pre-assigned time. Encourage your roommates to do the same.

  4. A Gender Breakdown by floor is available here on our website.

  5. Be patient. You may experience slower system response during peak sign-up periods.

  6. The Office of Residence Life will remain open until 9:30 p.m. on Monday, March 27 to answer any additional questions you may have during the housing sign-up process.
