Housing will be offered to qualified undergraduate and graduate students for 2021-2022. Students will be housed by their Living Learning Communities, athletic groups will be housed and grouped together, and all remaining students will be assigned by class year within the residence areas.
Students who completed the “Intent to Enroll” form and marked their interest to live on campus have been assigned housing. Upper class housing placements and roommate assignments were prioritized based on a student’s original request made in the spring semester. First year student housing placements and roommate assignments were prioritized based on the housing questionnaire.
Housing assignments and roommate information for all residential students will be posted in MyMack in June. Incoming new students for the Fall 2021 semester will be notified in July regarding their assignment on MyMack.
If you have any questions about your housing assignment, please email Residence Life.
Students will be grouped together by those living in a specific townhouse, apartment or suite. Traditional residential hall rooms with common bathrooms will be cohorted in groups of 4–12 people based on their living preferences. The residential groups will provide students the opportunity for closer personal and social contact with others while living on campus this fall — including the ability to have a roommate and share meals with others. When interacting only with members of their residential group in residence hall areas, social distancing should be maintained where possible but may be relaxed where needed as long as face coverings are worn.
Room changes will be made only in extreme circumstances in order to help maintain the health and safety of students.
Housing and De-Densification
Residential spaces were de-densified for the 2020-2021 academic year for safety, including the elimination of all triple and quad residence assignments. In all bedrooms, movable barriers are being placed for safety. A decision for the 2021-2022 academic year has not yet been determined.
