Housing mission statement:
University Housing provides residential experiences that empower students to succeed, engage with others, embrace diversity, and develop life skills.
Be successful: Students will learn and develop skills to achieve success with their academics, job, finances, and their professional goals. Students will learn skills and abilities to contribute to their learning and be active participants in their personal growth and development.
Be engaged and connected with others and the community: Students will feel a sense of belonging and connection to the UCM and local community. Students will gain skills to make meaningful connections to others and gain an acceptance and understanding of others.
Embrace our diverse world and the importance of inclusion of all people: Students will learn and develop skills to enhance their lives through a broader understanding of relationships with others, society, and the world. Students will learn skills to demonstrate their role in an inclusive and caring community.
Develop life skills and become self-aware: Students will learn and develop skills to achieve personal responsibility for living in a community, solving one’s problems, accepting personal role in challenges, failures and successes, living a healthy lifestyle, and other life skills.
Living on campus is a great choice and an integral part of the complete college experience. With a broad spectrum of opportunities designed to complement your academic endeavors, you'll be part of a community where you can grow and experience life independently, yet have support to help you excel on campus.
In support of UCM's Learning to a Greater Degree, UCM requires first-year and sophomore students under the age of 21 to reside on campus as part of a two-year residency requirement. Freshmen and sophomores are also required to have specified meal plans. Brand new transfer students with <48 UCM accepted credit hours are also required to reside on campus.
