Residence Life

Office of Residence Life

The Office of Residence Life houses students in a variety of living arrangements, from on traditional residence halls, to suites, to on and off campus apartments. The office is dedicated to providing a living/learning environment that promotes personal growth and encourages students to meet their full potential. The prevailing philosophy is that students who are actively engaged, respectful members of a college community,will become more engaged and productive as citizens upon graduating from Merrimack.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide a student-centered learning environment in which students are actively engaged in their educational experience.  We endeavor to assist students in creating a home away from home while supporting them in gathering a deeper understanding of different ways of thinking, leadership, mutual respect, friendships, personal responsibility, and accountability for one’s actions.  This is accomplished within a framework that supports the institution’s Statement of Community Standards and Augustinian tradition and promotes personal growth for every student.
