Living on Campus

New first year students typically live in Deegan HallAsh Centre, and Monican Centre.

New transfer students are typically placed in upperclassmen areas on a space-available basis. A full listing of the room and board pricing can be found on the Bursar’s Office website.

Housing Questionnaire

In addition to submission of a housing deposit, new students complete a housing questionnaire. The housing questionnaire is required, and will be available in “MackTasks,” a tab for new students within myMack, the Merrimack student portal, starting May 1, 2017. The housing questionnaire is due for new first year students by June 22, 2017 at 4:30 PM.

For transfer students, the housing questionnaire will remain open throughout the summer.

To complete the housing questionnaire, students will first activate their Merrimack College e-mail address and portal accounts in order to log into myMack. Follow the MackApps instructions for first time users to enroll in the password management system, change your Merrimack College password, and activate your Merrimack email. Contact the Office of Undergraduate Admission at 978-837-5100 or with questions.

Only residential students who submit their housing deposits on time will be able to access the housing questionnaire. To change your status from resident to commuter or commuter to resident, please make a request in writing to the Office of Undergraduate Admission at
