New Student Housing Options
General Housing will be in Sheridan Hall, Pangborn Hall, Bradley Hall and areas of the Terrace Complex. Students who choose this option will be assigned randomly to one of these buildings. These areas are home to mainly freshman students. Transfer students are assigned housing based on their class year.
The Honors Living-Learning Community offers the opportunity for members of the Honors program to continue their collaborative learning experiences in a relaxed residential setting. Students are able to pursue a range of academic and social activities with like-minded colleagues. At the same time, they will develop strong friendships through common goals, classes, conversation and fun. Freshman students residing in Honors Housing will be placed in Sheridan Hall.
Summit Living is primarily a holistic wellness community in which all aspects of one’s mental, physical and spiritual health are managed. Summit Living is a drug and alcohol free community composed of a supportive group of like-minded individuals with a drive to succeed. This living area is meant to be more than just a place where students live, but also a place where educates students can grow in whatever way they choose. Summit residents are mature individuals who are challenged to take an active role in their on-campus life, and in an effort to assist residents along their path to leadership and responsibility. They will be deeply encouraged to invent independent programs that enrich their community, and not to rely on others to shape their social activities. In this way Summit Living is a close-knit community and offers many exciting hall activities, contests and interesting volunteer opportunities. Freshman students residing in Summit Living will be notified of their building placement when they receive their assignment in August. The location for freshmen Summit Living will likely be Sheridan Hall, however this may change based on the number of students interested in this housing option.
WIS Housing is Living-Learning Community that promotes a specialized environment for women enrolled in one of the Mount's science programs. We seek to promote a strong sense of community comprised of like-minded individuals, committed to building a nurturing and supportive environment for young women to realize their academic potential, explore their vocation in science, find faith in themselves, discover and manifest shared values in everyday living and gain leadership skills through new experiences and challenges. Freshmen students residing in WIS Housing will be housed in Sheridan Hall.
