New students


Living on Campus

Incoming first year and transfer students will complete a profile and housing application online to indicate preferences for room type. Students will also have the option to request a roommate. Both processes can be completed by clicking the “New Student Housing Preference Form” button to the right. Students will also select a meal plan through this system. Step-by-step instructions can be found here.

Students will be able to log in and begin filling out the housing preference and optional roommate request forms starting on May 25. Forms must be submitted no later than June 30. To log in, students should use their Merrimack College e-mail credentials. For example, a student with an e-mail address of would use smithj as their username in Residence. The password is the same as their Merrimack College e-mail password.

First year students live in Deegan HallAsh Centre, and Monican Centre. A full listing of the room and board pricing can be found on the Bursar’s Office website.

The Office of Residence Life assigns students into rooms based on the date on which the College received the students’ deposits. If you have deposited to the college after May 9, it may take up to a week for your account to be ready to log in.

Housing assignments are sent to students via their Merrimack College e-mail accounts during the week of August 3.
