Did you know that students who live on campus during their undergraduate career experience higher academic success and are more likely to graduate? At MACU, we encourage ALL undergraduate students to join our thriving residential community. Living on campus is an important way to make lifelong friendships, develop better study habits, grow in your faith, and get involved in campus life.
We have a team of committed student Resident Assistants (RAs) who assist in managing the Residence Halls and invest in the lives of the students in our community. There are two Resident Assistants who live on each floor of the Residence Halls to serve the needs of students.

Southwest Hall is for female students, McCutcheon Hall is for our male students, and Harrington Hall is co-ed by room assignment.
Yes, only on-campus students have key-card access to the buildings. Each floor also is access controlled.
Yes, you will need to indicate that preference on your Housing Form. In order for your request to be honored, your anticipated roommate will need to make the request as well. You may also indicate your preference in suitemates (who you will share a bathroom with).
Absolutely! While we do believe new students will have a more enjoyable experience rooming with other new students, we realize that there are often times outside circumstances that make it much more appealing to live with an upperclassmen student. In order to be placed with an incoming student, just indicate so on the Housing Form. To be considered, the current student will need to make the same request.
All new students will need to fill out the New Student Housing Form. Housing requests are honored in the order in which they are received (and the student is enrolled).
New students are housed based on the date of submission of their Housing Form as well as payment of the housing deposit (and must be enrolled in classes). In other words, early bird gets the worm! When two students are paired together as roommates, we will use the earliest submission date of the two.
Students may use tacks, push pins, command strips, and command hooks to hang decorations on their walls.
Don’t worry! We’ve got it all under control. We will use the questions on your Housing Form to give you the best match possible! For this reason, it’s very important to be honest on the form.

There are two options for McCutcheon and Southwest. Premium Suites are two double-occupancy rooms connected by a bathroom. Our Grand Suites have a similar layout but also include a common living area which connects both rooms. Harrrington Hall includes 4-bedroom units where each student is assigned a private bedroom and the unit shares the bathroom.
We’ll wait until July to begin this process in order to let as many Housing Forms to pool as possible. We do this so that there are an optimum number of students and we can find a great match for. You will be notified by email of your housing assignment.
